A Jewish woman has been having unnatural thoughts about the softness of another woman’s skin. A feminist arranges to meet her online troll. A woman worries, under her duvet, whether she should sit content in a marriage that has turned comfortable…that is, until she falls in love with a tree… Short stories of midnight musings, of women itching to be heard and of delightful insanities.
