Essay “On Scary Women” by Lynn Schmeidler

May 22, 2024

We love this essay, “On Scary Women,” by Lynn Schmeidler in Women Writers, Women’s Books! All the speakers in Lynn’s debut short story collection, Half-Lives, are women and many might be considered scary, or at the very least intimidating; however, as in Lynn’s essay, the stories explore what is underneath the surface, reflecting on how cultural forces shape who these characters are and become.
