This is a reissue of National Book Award finalist Mary Gaitskill’s debut collection, Bad Behavior—powerful stories about dislocation, longing, and desire, which depict a disenchanted and rebellious urban-fringe generation as it searches for human connection.
Now a classic, Bad Behavior made critical waves when it was first published, heralding Gaitskill’s arrival on the literary scene and her establishment as a sharp, erotically charged, and audaciously funny writer of contemporary literature.
Stories included here are “Daisy’s Valentine,” “A Romantic Weekend,” “Something Nice,” “An Affair, Edited,” “Connection,” “Trying to Be,” “Secretary,” “Other Factors,” and “Heaven.”
