A compulsive read about falling in love with a woman for the first time, Caldwell has done an excellent job of weaving an intelligent plot-line into a truly heart-wrenching romance, finished off with a cheeky narrative that makes a sumptuous, cheeky dessert of a novella.
I have meditated repeatedly on what it was about Finn that had me so dismantled.
A young woman moves from the countryside to the city.
Inexplicably, inexorably and immediately, she falls in love with another woman for the first time in her life.
Finn is nineteen years older than her, wears men's clothes, has a cocky smirk of a smile - and a long-term girlfriend.
With precision, wit and tenderness, Women charts the frenzy and the fall out of love.
