Brutalities: A Love Story

Brutalities: A Love Story

Roxanne says: Coming of age is a term used for many books and movies of this variety, but Margo’s is so unique, I’d like to call it an ‘overcoming of age’ book.  From her dominatrix work in NYC to her Hawaiian welding job and running addiction to her pregnancy and fascination with MMA, this memoir is one of the most unique life stories I've ever encountered.  

Quarantined in a southwestern desert city in the midst of her high-risk pregnancy, Margo Steines felt her life narrow around her growing body, compelling her to reckon with the violence entangled in its history. She was a professional dominatrix in New York City, a homestead farmer in a brutal relationship, a welder on a high-rise building crew, and a mixed martial arts enthusiast; each of her many lives brought a new perspective on how power and masculinity coalesce--and how far she could push her body toward the brink. With unflinching candor, Steines searches for the roots of her erstwhile attraction to pain while charting the complicated triumph of gentleness and love.
