Inside Madeleine (Paula Bomer)

Article by brooke

Normally I don't recommend books based on their ability to induce vomiting, but in this case I feel it is apt. Paula Bomer’s new short story collection is not for the faint of heart. These gut-wrenching stories about girls at work, in school or at loose ends will make you laugh out loud and possibly throw up as her characters share the gritty, strange and poignant details of their lives. Bomer writes with equal power about the tough girl, the quiet girl and the wild child. The title novella is a heart-breaker about the eating disordered and lonely Madeleine whose story loops right around to the opening short story. A stunning collection that you won't be able to forget any time soon.
