Ruth McPhee’s book takes work by Jane Campion and Lars von Trier and seeks to flip the common reductive and simplistic approaches to heterosexual female masochism and focus instead on the ambivalences and intricacies of this type of sexuality and subjectivity. Jodie Matthews finds that the book challenges readers in many ways.
