Summary
"Women in the Trees marshals the power of literature to confront, explore, and speak out about domestic violence, an experience too often surrounded by silence. Drawing upon over a century of American women's short stories, Susan Koppelman uncovers a powerful legacy of literature that grapples with this harsh reality in the lives of woman. Acclaimed upon its first publication, this updated edition features new selections. Together, these stories form a unique and ultimately empowering collection notable for both its emotional impact and its literary wealth."--BOOK JACKET
