InstaReview: Nightbitch by Rachel Yoder

"How many generations of women had delayed their greatness only to have time extinguish it completely? How many women had run out of time while then men didn't know what to do with theirs? And what a mean trick to call such things holy or selfless. How evil to praise women for giving up each and every dream."

Nightbitch by Rachel Yoder is an EXPERIENCE. It is the story of a stay-at-home-mom who suddenly feels like she may be turning into a dog. The wild ride that ensues is both thrilling, haunting, and deeply resonant. Yoder’s writing is both darkly funny and deadly serious with just a dash of horribly gruesome. On the surface, Nightbitch is about getting in touch with your feral side and advocating for yourself, but it’s also about working through some of the more difficult questions of parenthood. Amidst the surreal horror, Yoder examines the balance between being an individual and caregiver, and how to navigate ambition and equity within a parental relationship. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
