Fiction. "THE WOMAN WITHOUT EXPERIENCES is an intimate composition, unsettling in its artfulness, quietude, probing. We perceive a solitary figure surrounded, as it were, contained 'inside the field of her own creation,' holding each word up to the light as an egg. Intersecting the lines between Genet and Weil, she is 'conducting the daylight through the layers.' She prepares an opening. It is a lovely door" - C.D. Wright.
