Mary Gaitskill’s Short Fiction [John Englehardt]

All Levels | This class will explore the craft of Mary Gaitskill’s short fiction, such as her concept of the “inner weave,” temporal distortions, and her matter-of-fact portrayal of taboo subjects. We will also discuss the recurring themes of sexuality, violence, and wayward lives that have filled her stories since her 1988 debut, Bad Behavior. Class will be a discussion-based, collaborative “book club” environment, with some informal or analytic writing assignments.
