From the rear cover: '"Finding a way to be a woman is finding a way to live with fatal knowledge"' says Catherine A. McKinnon in her introduction to Heads and Tales. New York-based German Heide Hatry has a penchant for difficult subjects that press directly against mortality, fear, and alienation. Her sculptures -- used here as springboards for incredibly diverse evocations of women's lives by 27 cutting-edge female writers -- speak the fatal knowledge that others are at pains to express."
