Hand Over Fist

Hand Over Fist
Magdalen Powers

A 28-page chapbook published by So New Media, complete with a mini-CD audio recording of the author reading selected stories. "Caroline kept her nails perfectly manicured because she knew it frightened other women", she writes. And "I want to be somebody's wife in the '50's: so I could move on; grow up; put my head in an oven; get over it."

It's a small book, but intriguing. Powers can write.

(Confidential to publisher: there's a typo in the first sentence of the promotional tuck-in. Oops.)
