Bad Behavior

I just finished reading the collection of short stories from the book Bad Behavior by Mary Gaitskill. It was so unique and fresh, despite the fact that it was written in 1988. The way Gaitskill captures the perversity of human nature and relationships is stunning. This was Gaitskill's first book that established her reputation as one of the "sharpest, erotically charged, and audaciously funny writing talents of contemporary literature...Gaitskill delivers powerful stories of dislocation, longing, and desire that depict a disenchanted and rebellious urban fringe generation groping for human connection."
