MFOB featured book: Lucky Dogs
In Lucky Dogs, the paths of two women on opposite ends of a high-profile sexual abuse scandal set them on a devastating collision course. On a sultry summer night in Paris, two women meet in line at an ice cream kiosk on the Ile de la Cité. Both women have been victims of male violence, and both are warriors—one trained and calculating, one instinctually ferocious. They each think they know who they are dealing with. But both are very, very wrong.
With humor and prose alternately irreverent and lyrical, Schulman explores the interiority of women whose lives have been warped by brutality and misogyny, ultimately asking and answering the shattering question: how could one woman so utterly betray another?
