If God Was a Woman

The book is out of print.


If God Was a Woman is a book of ten contemporary stories about women's and men's lives and relationships, women's condition, their desires, wants, and needs. What if God were a woman? Would anything change? Were one to compile a checklist, would the problems and/or perceptions of women as mistresses, unguarded (frustrated) wives, sexually unfulfilled, whores, concubines, silenced, or brutalized and abandoned be surprisingly altered in the script of "womanbeing"?


As a blend of situational stories, the collection is troubling with its curious mixture of setting, imagery, and language. - Pamela J. Olubunmi, World Literature Today
