This book is an odd collection of the author's musings. ... I'm assuming while hallucinating.
But it's been a long time since I felt like a writer was in my head looking out and so many of these stories felt like that. I'm not sure whether that's good or not, but I like feeling not alone in my head so much! I'm SO GLAD I stumbled upon this book... Thank you Burnt Tongue anthology for leading the way. If you like a little weird in your transgressive (?) fiction - oh, it's soooo good!!
Since this is a review on Amazon, I will add that If you are a fan of Margaret Atwood, I would highly suggest you buy Gowin's book. I seriously felt that same delicious tingly feeling while reading Gowin's book that I get from reading anything by Atwood.
They say a great book never gives up all its secrets at once, and that's definitely the case with <i>Radium Girls</i>. I could tell right away these are the type of stories that require multiple readings to truly comprehend and appreciate. They're so short that by the time you start to feel grounded in the story, it's over. I don't think it's a coincidence that my favorite story by far was also the longest by far; the novella at the end, <i>The Pink Manatee</i>. I actually thought it was kind of brilliant to be honest, and it made me really hope Gowin writes a full length novel someday.
I kept vacillating between 4 and 5 stars, 4 for most of the book, 5 at the end. Let's say 4.5, though, I have a feeling if I reread it a couple more times I'll be kicking myself for not giving it 5.
