The podium came up to her chest, and she read from Veronica under the heavy, dark eyebrow of Frida Kahlo She was glorious. During her reading it was everything I could do not to sigh right out loud. I sat biting my lower lip, eyes half-closed, mesmerized. I had goosebumps the entire time. It was glorious. And then I took my place in line to get my book signed. I had lugged along my hardcover of Veronica though I was too shy to bring Bad Behavior and Because They Wanted To (which I just finished and destroyed me with its wonderfulness). Then suddenly it was my turn and I stood in front of her, speechless. She looked up at me and smiled. I beamed back.
I beamed all the way home. Subscribe to comments Share This

By Stephanie Zacharek Column Here he is By Michael Sragow Music Review A new Astralwerks compilation takes the electronic pulse of underground urban America. By Amanda Nowinski Philosophy of the bedroom Mary Gaitskill, Greil Marcus, David Gates and Lisa Zeidner weigh in on "Eyes Wide Shut." July 23, 1999 Kubrick: A little kid lost in the sexual darkness By Mary Gaitskill Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut" is built on the idea that sex is a dark, chaotic, destructive force. This is a poor foundation, though not because the idea is wrong exactly; sex can be all of the above. But sex is too primary, too deep and too big for the idea; what makes it most destructive and violent is part of what makes it creative and intensely loving. How these opposed qualities interact in each of us is complicated and tender and strange it goes all the way down to the bottom of us, the part we can't see into. It's easy to be scared of what you can't see, but it's a little kid who thinks that because he's afraid of the dark, the dark is therefore evil. "Eyes Wide Shut" has one strong early scene: A wife tells her husband of a moment some years past when a handsome young man simply glanced at her, and she was so inflamed that she would've thrown away her marriage for one night with him had the opportunity been there. That a complete stranger could arouse such a forceful primary response in her is scary for the characters and poignant for the viewer, poignant because it depicts how the underlayer of her unconscious what we can't see is at odds with the rational top layer of her life, creating an incongruity that might be funny or awful or both. At that point the movie is involving; we recognize the dilemma and want to see how it will play out.

    Is Mary Gaitskill bisexual or something similar?
    I'm sure I have no idea what the questioner intended by "or something similar" in fact that addition makes me question the value of answering at all but here goes:
    Mary Gaitskill married writer Peter Trachtenberg in 2001. That is a matter of public record.
    She certainly writes in great detail about the wider theme of women's sexuality, including activity that could be described as bisexual or lesbian.
    However her public statements do not seem, after searching in some detail, to include anything that could be labeled "bisexual".
    Which leads us back to the question. The value of a basically meaningless label like "bisexual" (Now? In the past? Engaged in a specific activity once?) in any discussion must be questioned.

Mary Gaitskill (whose Veronica I sort of abstractly liked and whose Because They Wanted To I sort of pretty much loved) continues to make the rounds. The Elegant Variation points at a Bookworm radio interview with Gaitskill; the "listen" link just breaks on my computer, and I've added the podcast to iTunes but the interview doesn't seem to have been added to the feed yet. There's some other interesting looking interviews from that show, which I'll probably download and then never actually listen to.

For it doesn't take much imagination to envision the desperate characters from Gaitskill's tales sitting on Ricki Lake's couch of wonders, airing their experiences before a crowd sure to hoot at Gaitskill's bewildered human beings. Take the young secretary from her first collection, Bad Behavior (1988), who endures, and at times enjoys, the sadomasochistic advances of her unspeakable employer; ...

Mary Gaitskill: Veronica
Reviewed by: Lawrence Richette
I don't know Lawrence Richette, but he has written an honest and excellent review.
Mary Gaitskill is, beyond any doubt, the finest short story writer of my literary generation. Both BAD BEHAVIOR and BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO contain stories that will be read as long as people voluntarily read American fiction. I am thinking in particular of "The Girl On The Plane" in the latter collection, which may be the best story anyone in America has written in the past twenty years.
Until now, though, Gaitskill's reputation has rested on her stories. Her first novel, TWO GIRLS FAT AND THIN, came as a severe disappointment to most of her ardent fans. Gaitskill seemed to be doing too many things at once, a not uncommon fault of first novels. She was dramatizing a bizarre, quasi-lesbian relationship between the two girls, while also trying to write a novel of ideasthe book contains a laborious parody of Ayn Rand's Objectivism, which Gaitskill called Definitism.

    All This Useless Beauty
    Veronica Bad Behavior and Because They Wanted To All of which serves to highlight what a significant departure Veronica represents for its author. While the early work often seemed to be about the flesh whilst being acutely psychological, the new novel is psychological in its staging (the narrative is a single, continuous interior monologue, fashioned over the course of a work day and later, the journey home), yet conversely, takes for its subject matters of the flesh. This is, after all, the story of a fashion model who eventually loses her looks. It is also about the beauty industry, the superficiality of physical appearance and how we judge others, as well as being a meditation on the ways we fetishize youth. Lastly, of course, it is also about the strength of the spirit when confronted with the inevitable decay of the body. The story Alison tells is of breaking free from home at fifteen, leaving behind a fraught relationship with her parents. Her mother is distant and removed, and she most clearly comes to understand her father via the messages he seeks to convey in his own language, the language of songs and recording artists he plays most and loves:
