By Rebecca Miller
These short stories are mostly about women at crossroads, about the ways each one chooses to move forward. Rebecca Miller herself turned the book into a film, and I played one of the characters, Delia, who leads with her sexuality. She's a woman with very few options and a husband who beats her. Then she takes her kids away from him, and you see her slowly get her power back. I never get the trampy girl role; I'm so grateful that Rebecca wrote this character and gave so many intimate details in the story of who Delia was, and then asked me to play her.
