    Book Description Powerful stories of dislocation, longing and desire which depict a disenchanted and rebellious urban fringe generation that is groping for human connection. (Or, more simply put, the angst of people-who-wear-black.) Customer Reviews: Exposing external and internal wounds of happiness and normality In her first book, North-American writer Mary Gaitskill deals with what most people would call `strange persons'. Most of the characters in "Bad Behavior" do not fit what society calls normal nevertheless, they lead a so-called average life. They sleep, eat, love, hate, watch tv, work, and in between they feed the emotional detour. The best ability of this skillful writer is to avoid making them look like freaks. In "Secretary" (the only Gaitskill adapted to the cinema so far), for instance, the title character is a young woman who has emotional issues, and meets a new boss who likes spanking her and she starts enjoying that. It is match made in heaven. What could be a freakshow, here is a sort of love story with a strong emotional core. The relationship in the work environment sexual harassment? is a slap in the face of the post-feminism. The writer is able o convince that those people need that kind of relationship, that they are happy with that.

    Interview with Mary Gaitskill
    by Alexander Laurence
    (c) 1994
    How long have you lived in San Francisco?
    Mary Gaitskill
    I've only been here for five months. I went back and forth between Marin County and New York City for a while. Then I ran out of money, so I don't have my place in New York anymore. I moved to San Francisco because I started to go nuts in Marin. I realize that Marin County repels many people, but I didn't feel that way because I wanted to live somewhere that was very quiet and didn't demand anything of me. It's been hard for me to get connected to San Francisco. I'm not sure why. A lot of my life here has been very internal, but that's always been true of me.
    You sound like you don't drive?
    No, I don't. Which is one of the reasons that I liked being in Marin, because without a car, everything had to slow down to one mile an hour. You wouldn't think from my demeanor that I would require that, but I can be very amped up, even though I don't show it. Everything was slow like silly putty. That was good for me at the time. My internal state was so chaotic that I needed to be somewhere that wasn't going to reflect that back to me. Two Girls, Fat and Thin

    My Inspiration: Vladimir Nabokov Sorcerer of cruelty
    By MARY GAITSKILL I n an interview, Vladimir Nabokov was once asked to comment on the popular authorial truism that one's fictional characters can sometimes "take over" and dictate to the author the course of a story. In his supercilious dismissal of this whimsical idea, Nabokov described his characters as "galley slaves" a comment exuding the playful, haughty spirit that drove (and still drives) some critics nuts. Such critics condemn Nabokov's authorial voice as elitist, inhuman and finally cruel. And that is an assessment his "slaves" might well agree with, subjected as they were to excruciating and ridiculous fates delineated in exquisite language and sparkling, albeit twisted, comic narratives. To a reader with a defensive turn of mind who is waiting to be told how to live or to be shown the Truth in a piece of fiction, the ruthless and rigorous complexity of Nabokov's work may seem cruel simply because it does not offer either of these services. Some readers apparently interpret the very beauty of his prose as cruel and there is a hyper-refinement, an airy, curiously high-pitched quality to its beauty that can feel cruel simply because it throws the whole beastly, mundane, plodding corporeality of human beings into such grotesque relief. Through this Apollonian oeuvre there frolic countless tiny nymphets most famously, Lolita Haze, with her dim eyes and big, bright mouth, her narrow-shouldered, hipless, insouciant grace. And therein also stump Mrs. Haze and her 30-ish sisters, with their gross emotional needs, their dumpy legs, their ghastly hips and boobs, the unbeautiful human personified with a fastidious shudder.

I was living alone in a very isolated area and I was having insomnia so severe that I was only sleeping one to three hours a night. On top of that, when I did sleep, I had intense nightmares, all on the theme of brutish men viciously killing and/or raping women me for example. The dreams were terrifying, but they were also bewildering; while they could be explained by real-life fears, I felt they were more about me than anything external, and because I very much wanted to understand them, I thought a lot about them. Solitude, sleep deprivation, nightmares and self-examination are a loopy combination, and I spent my many waking hours moving in and out of an half-dream state in which the violent images from my subconscious loomed about me, leering ridiculously as I nodded off in the grocery store checkout line.

    19. Books: Beautiful Brooding (Tucson Weekly . 08-11-97)
    Mary Gaitskill is at it again mining those twisted psyches and revealing the demographics of sex, power and intimacy in her first collection of short stories in more than a decade.
    Beautiful Brooding
    A New Collection Of Stories By Mary Gaitskill Is Long Overdue. By Piers Marchant Because They Wanted To MARY GAITSKILL'S first collection of stories in more than 10 years, Because They Wanted To , cements her reputation as a gifted writer unafraid of treading on dangerous and unsettling ground. Here, as in her first collection Bad Behavior , Gaitskill expertly mines her characters' twisted psyches, recording and revealing in small snatches the demographics of sex, power and intimacy. It's a brutal, wonderful collection, absorbing and terrifying in its unflinching look at our private lives. Gaitskill's writing is a marvel of interconnecting tensions, incorporating present anxiety with past affliction. In her best work, there's a seamless rendering of disturbed synergya catalogue of all the things that are out of place and gloomy in her characters' harrowing worlds. The title story focuses on the homeless girl Elise, who's fleeing from Seattle to the Canadian border to escape a peculiar, incestuous relationship with her brother. Desperate for money, she accepts a baby-sitting job from a woman who promises to pay her in time. Clumsy, awkward and completely incapable of handling small children, Elise spends a harrowing day with two small boys and a baby. As the day progresses, and the mother's return is delayed, Elise increasingly loses control over the children, until disaster seems imminent. Like a Diane Arbus photo in close detail, Gaitskill constantly cross-references tidy images with a bleak, chaotic overtonethe literary equivalent of a gray balloon in a bucket of blood. Elise's musings on the family placed in her care, for example, commingle maternal care with a disturbing air of misplaced sexuality: "She thought Robin must sleep in this bed with Penny, curled around her protectively as you would sleep with a kitten. Eric and Andy must sleep with them too. The bed was big, but still they would have to sleep close. She wondered if they wore pajamas. That would be uncomfortable in the heat, but it might be even more uncomfortable to touch sticky naked limbs...She wondered if Robin had a light, lacy gown to wear, or a nylon shortie."
