Love Does Not Make Me Gentle Or Kind
Fiction. Women's Studies. Chavisa Woods' LOVE DOES NOT MAKE ME GENTLE OR KIND is a collection of fiction focusing on the formative and tumultuous moments in the lives of two women as children and adults, whose relationship to one another is cast in an ambiguous light, and whose characters are abstracted within the context of each story. Primarily set in rural America and other transient realms, this book combines realism with elements of meta-fiction, magnifying the extraordinary interpersonal worlds created by the circumstances of their outer reality. "Woods writes about love with a calloused hand, filling the spaces left by others. Her words etch a dotted line across your heart, instructing it precisely in where to break" -Sabrina Chapadjiev.
