Women in Bed

Jessica Keener grew up in the Boston area, graduating early from high school and earning a bachelor’s degree from Boston University.  One bone marrow transplant, one master’s degree (from Brown University), one marriage, and a number of moves later, Keener is back in Boston with something new to add to her timeline.


The writer of the highly praised, Night Swim, is back at it again – this time about women, secrets, and sex.

Women in Bed holds the intimate stories of women and their relationships with lovers, foes, and the in-betweens.  Keener invites us into loving, lonely, passionate and sexual lives of women.  Through nine stories, mostly set in Boston, it’s easy for a collegiette to find a character or a story to relate to.


Jessica Anya Blau, writer of The Wonder Bread Summer, says that “it is impossible to turn away from these beautiful and evocative stories. Jessica Keener explores the courage, vulnerabilities, and strength of women in every phase of life. No matter who you are, you will see a version of yourself illuminated in this poignant, powerful book.
