About Ruin by Emma Hislop

Whether in the fallout of a father’s pornography addiction or the fragility of a new marriage, in the aftermath of a drunken night gone horribly wrong, or even the desire to touch a stranger’s fur-like body, violence, in these stories, is never far from the surface – if it hasn’t already broken through.
But while the line between ruin and redemption is always perilously thin, the women of Ruin walk it, dealing in multiple and surprising ways to the punches thrown at them by men – and by other women.
This is a book about power and its contortions, powerlessness and its depravities, and the ends to which we will go to claim back agency.
