Is "Wom" short for woman?
Wom will cause a reaction in anyone who reads it. You might like the story, you might hate it, but once you read it, I doubt you can ignore it. Wom provokes feelings in the reader, though they are absent from the characters. It is well-written, but as I write this, I still don't know if I liked the story. Because of the content, I don't know if I'd read something by Joll again.
