Sarah Gerkensmeyer is not a fan of the traditional female stereotypes. Need evidence? Just read some of the stories included in her collection “What You Are Now Enjoying.”

It’s also a gesture of solidarity to women who feel they must hide their socially unacceptable mixed feelings toward womanhood,” wrote Jennifer Wisner Kelly in a review for the Colorado Review.
