"It’s a strange compliment, a little like being told you throw like a boy. So I wonder why the book is often described that way? What I come up with is that our idea of what constitutes ‘women’s writing’ is so narrow that it’s rather easy to write outside of it. It’s not that I set out to be transgressive — though that would not be unlike me. It was only that I had no interest in writing polite, well-behaved stories. (And I should say here that men write plenty of these.) I have no patience for pleasantries, in my life or in my fiction, and I’ve not yet been accused of good manners."
