Beloved cult novel repackaged to join the Serpent's Tail Classics series
Both stripped-bare fragile and 'fuck you' tough.
Gaitskill is enormously gifted ... [Veronica] is a masterly examination of the relationship between surface and self, culture and fashion, time and memory.
This characteristically oblique glance at the US fashion modeling industry of the 1980s is written with all the psychological kick that distinguished Gaitskill's last collection of stories.
Gaitskill writes so radiantly about violent self-loathing that the very incongruousness of her language has shocking power.
Gaitskill deserves some sort of monument [for this] beautiful, devastating new novel...There are paragraphs like poems in Veronica that lure you back, over and over.
Gaitskill is enormously gifted...[Veronica] is a masterly examination of the relationship between surface and self, culture and fashion, time and memory.
