The Gold Cell, Sharon Olds
“I know, it’s poetry, but I promise you will not get your period after reading this book. What you will get are one writer’s gorgeous, intense, visceral, and sometimes shocking snapshots of being a woman in the world — a mother, a daughter, a lover. Also, there’s a poem written from the perspective of post-op penises in a sex-change clinic. Are you man enough for that?”
-Suggested by Jennifer Weiner, the New York Times best-selling author of 12 books, including All Fall Down (Atria, 2014) and Who Do You Love (Atria, 2015).
