A Nail, a Rose | MADELEINE. BOURDOUXHE

Pickpick

A collection of stories by Belgian writer Bourdouxhe, translated from the French by Faith Evans. I'm not sure how to review this book; it's a series of small, crystalline gems with a razor sharp yet compassionate lens on the interior lives of working-class women. Bourdouxhe studied philosophy & wrote this after the Nazis came to power & accordingly these stories are heavy in thought & mood, less on plot. Reminds me of Clarice Lispector. #WITmonth
