From the acclaimed author of Use Me, eight provocative and darkly funny linked stories that explore the commonly shared, but rarely spoken of experiences that build girls into women and women into wives and mothers, mapping America’s shifting cultural landscape from the late 1970s to the present day. In Blueprints for Building Better Girls, Schappell’s first work of fiction since her celebrated debut Use Me —a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway award, a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year, and a New York Times Notable book—she delves into the lives of an eclectic cast of archetypal female characters, including the high school slut, the party girl, the reluctant mother, and the anorexic daughter, twisting our pre-conceived notions of who these women are, as they make unexpected and wonderful visits to each other’s stories.
