Much like the previous comment regarding this book, I think we fail to realize in my Y generation how much has changed and how much still needs to change. How fitting it it to read this book soon after Rep. Todd Akin invented "legitimate rape". In Crossing on page 217, the Vicky narrates: "And his hand came up and covered my mouth and nose and eyes. I could feel his other hand getting all the bits and pieces off me and then trying to spread my legs. I clamped them together, and his hand went away. I'd always read that no one could be raped if she didn't really want to be...". A book worth reading.

Set in 1960s Vancouver Vicky Ferris is a writer and 27 year old recent divorcee. She lives in a house in Vancouver with a rotating cast of friends, artists and family until Mik O'Brien moves in. Mik is large and coarse and soon the two begin a romantic, violent affair.

A non linear, often disorienting story that really exposes the problems faced by women and artists of the time.
