Story Rec: Languaging at Every Day Fiction

Great story posted today at EDF - Languaging by Jessica George

My comment:

This is *fantastic*. Loved it to pieces. Creepy as hell, with a dystopian vibe that reminded me of The Handmaid’s Tale. Like #10, I thought there was a lot being suggested about the silencing of women’s voices. But for all that, the MC was an engaging and sympathetic character (and equally, so were Bekah and Henri, even though they oppose/don’t appear!)

The prose and descriptive details were lush and sensuous, contrasting and complementing the cold, harsh and restrictive world they painted.

Five star fabulous, and one of my favourite stories to date.
