A dark yet playful collection of short stories that pushes boundaries and blurs the lines between the real and surreal Girl Zoo is an enthralling and sometimes unsettling collection of short stories that examines how women in society are confined by the limitations and expectations of pop culture, politics, advertising, fashion, myth, and romance. In each story, a woman or girl is literally confined or held captive, and we can only watch as they are transformed into objects of terror and desire, plotting their escape from their cultural cages. Taken as a whole, this experimental speculative fiction invites parallels to social justice movements focused on sexuality and gender, as well as cautionary tales for our precarious political movement. Parkison and Guess offer no solutions to their characters' captivity. Instead, they challenge their audience to read against the grain of conventional feminist dystopian narratives by inviting them inside the "Girl Zoo" itself. Take a step inside the zoo and see for yourself. We dare you. Behind the bars, a world of wonder awaits.
