Publisher's Summary

This is a reissue of National Book Award finalist Mary Gaitskill's debut collection, Bad Behavior - powerful stories about dislocation, longing, and desire that depict a disenchanted and rebellious urban-fringe generation as it searches for human connection.

Now a classic, Bad Behavior made critical waves when it was first published, heralding Gaitskill's arrival on the literary scene and her establishment as a sharp, erotically charged, and audaciously funny writer of contemporary literature.

Stories included here are "Daisy's Valentine", "A Romantic Weekend", "Something Nice", "An Affair, Edited", "Connection", "Trying to Be", "Secretary", "Other Factors", and "Heaven".

Misery

An almost empty rambling through deserted lives.
Cannot believe this could have been influential.
Yet, ‘Secretary,’ the film, resounded with a life force.
A huge mistake to have the author read this. Her stumbling, hesitant, doleful tone was unrelenting.
