Staff Reviews

This is a rewriting of history for the ages. Matsuda's collection of interwoven stories takes inspiration from Japanese folklore - stories children grow up on full of jealous, overbearing women and the violence men inflict on their bodies. Matsuda's beautiful stories disrupt that narrative and give women the chance to care for one another from birth to the afterlife and do what they damn well please.

Where the Wild Ladies Are is the future of feminist literature - a tender world where the women are so complex, even their afterlives are rich and layered.

Where the Wild Ladies Are is a beautiful and haunting, modern and feminist reimagining of Japanese folklore and ghost stories. While it wears its inspirations on its sleeve, each of these enchanting and offbeat stories feels entirely original. Ethereal, quirky, and charming — I loved it!”
