ABOUT MAN AND WIFE
An electrifying fiction debut that crackles with humor and insight, MAN AND WIFE examines the lives of girls and women as they take part in puberty rites, marriage rituals, and deathbed confessions. 

"Funny, subversive, and antagonizing." —Marie Claire

"A consistently provocative debut collection.” —Publishers Weekly

“Katie Chase’s narrators sound like the girl-next-door. . . if you lived next door to a parallel universe.” —Peter Ho Davies

“With sharp, confident consideration of what it takes to survive in the world as a woman, MAN AND WIFE introduces an important new literary voice.”—Danielle Evans
