Cutting Edge: Noir Stories by Women

by Joyce Carol Oates


Joyce Carol Oates pulls out all the stops in this chilling female-led noir anthology featuring brand-new writing from Margaret Atwood, Steph Cha, Edwidge Danticat and more.

"You know," she said, "someone else has gone missing." "You mean for a case?"
"It's me," she said, too brightly. "Me."
"You've gone missing? Aren't you right here?"

The outdated noir narrative gets a radical feminist update in this fresh anthology featuring some of the world's most celebrated female authors. Here, noir queenpin Joyce Carol Oates has curated a wide range of stylistically diverse stories and poems that could not feel more timely. At times wickedly funny, slyly subversive and always gripping, this striking collection places the voices historically consigned to noir's edges front and centre.

Edited by Joyce Carol Oates and including her own work, as well as that of Margaret Atwood, Valerie Martin, Aimee Bender, Edwidge Danticat, Sheila Kohler, S.A. Solomon, S.J. Rozan, Lucy Taylor, Cassandra Khaw, Bernice L. McFadden, Jennifer Morales, Elizabeth McCracken, Livia Llewellyn, Lisa Lim, and Steph Cha.
