We Were Witches by Ariel Gore
Spurred on by nineties 'family values' campaigns and determined to better herself through education, a teen mom talks her way into college. Disgusted by an overabundance of phallocratic narratives and Freytag's pyramid, she turns to a subcultural canon of resistance and failure.
Wryly riffing on feminist literary tropes, it documents the survival of a demonised single mother figuring things out.
