The Woman Warrior

The Woman Warrior


by Maxine Hong Kingston

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


Kingston gives us a lot of adult material, though it usually induces uncomfortable squirms. We see everything from adultery that leads to suicide and infanticide to love making in a tent on a mountain. It's all there with room to spare, Kingston-style, whether you're into it or not.
