If Karen Russell wrote stories set in the wilds of rural England rather than rural Florida, you might get something like Daisy Johnson's Fen--strange stories of girls growing up and on the outskirts of an unwelcoming world. Johnson writes with a cutting voice, elegantly dissecting daily injustices and incremental brutalizations, and the transformations women make to survive.
