    A charming book -- like in the way one charms a snake -- you're unexpectedly hypnotized. "So this is the henhouse. The truth female north. Chickens stampede over my fish-tailed body, stew the fabric with the shit on their feet. So this is the ghost space. The boards whistle, the house collapses. The hens escape, some split down the middle. From their insides, women--naked and mildew-streaked."
