We Were Witches

“Forget Freytag’s Pyramid (of predictable male prose)—behold Gore’s upside down triangle (of fierce feminist narrative)! We Were Witches is its own genre, in its own canon.”

—Kate Schatz, author of Rad American Women A-Z

“Ariel Gore’s We Were Witches is one woman’s body refusing to become property, refusing to be overwritten by law or traditions, one woman’s body cutting open a hole in culture so that actual bodies might emerge. A triumphant body story. A singularly spectacular siren song.”

—Lidia Yuknavitch
