We Were Witches by Ariel Gore [A Black Cat looking abashed and demure]

We Were Witches

by Ariel Gore

Our phallocentric culture often demonizes women, but especially single mothers who dare live a life outside of male influence. This book follows the life of a queer single mother who is just trying to survive in this world and finds herself asking what the shape of her life is. Ariel Gore expertly weaves a narrative that anyone who doesn't fit society's definition of "acceptable" can connect with.

"A re-writing of every helpless princess fairy tale and a reclamation of every Scarlet Letter. . . .We Were Witches is an absolute must read." Ms. magazine blog
