In Pam Houston’s best-selling story collection, we meet smart women who are looking for the love of a good man, and men who are wild and hard to pin down. Our heroines are part daredevil, part philosopher, all acute observers of the nuances of modern romance. Cowboys Are My Weakness is a shrewd and intoxicating look at men and women—together and apart.
“Brilliant.… [Houston] takes women into grand spaces, both emotional and physical, and isolates them until there’s nothing left to do but sit down and take a hard look at one’s soul.” —Los Angeles Times

Striking, visual and dare I say poetic short stories about loving all things untamed, including your own heart.

*Note, this edition's cover design (i.e., cowgirl legs with strange cowboy figurine standing in-between them) is laughable and just plain awful - do not judge this book by that particular cover*

Short stories that tackle love, sex and romance with frightening honesty and extraordinary good humour. Shrewd sassy, tough writing for the 90's.
