In an ironic critique of male definitions of female deviance, eight women writers created characters bedevilled by symptoms - women who are struck blind, grow lumps in the throat, suffer from herpes or colitis, who strike hysterical attitudes or follow their wandering womd to the point of crime. With wit and a delicate savagery, eight exhilarating writers put their characters on the couch and tease out the hidden narratives, the clandestine biographies of women.
