Trying To Get Myself... published In mslexia

My memoir piece Trying To Get Myself Raped And Murdered was selected by Rachel Cusk for 'New Writing' in the current issue of mslexia (Issue 57), and you can read her thoughtful and insightful Judge's Essay here. But then, I'm biased by her nice words about my piece:

'A young woman’s discovery that men are predators rather than protectors is brilliantly evoked in ‘Trying to get myself raped and murdered’ by Paula McGrath, an account of her experience tending bar in an oil field worked by Samoan labourers.'

Unfortunately it's not online; you'll have to purchase a copy if you're dying to read it...
