Lidia Yuknavitch’s Ida Bauer one of Flavorwire’s The Best Literary Heroines of 2012

30 Dec 2012|

From Flavorwire:

17-year-old Ida is a modern reincarnation of Freud’s famous bisexual case study Dora, whom our most famous shrink deemed “hysterical.” Ida may be a bit “hysterical” too — but she’s so many more things: raunchy, irreverent, filled with the desire to strip naked in the middle of “Nordfucks” or shave her head, sidekicked by a beautiful gang of weirdos. Plus, she’s recording everything in her punked-out Dora the Explorer purse. “I want to create new girl myths,” Yuknavitch said of the book. It’s about damn time someone did.
