"Stacey May Fowles evokes Lives of Girls and Women in a text that is often sweetly sad, but not sorry." Mariko Tamaki, co-creator of Skim. Combining Stacey May Fowles's humorous, biting prose with Marlena Zuber's whimsical and raw illustrations, Fear of Fighting searches for meaning in the mundane. Set in the lonely, urban landscape of downtown Toronto, the story revolves around Marnie, a broken-hearted young woman fighting to find something more.

Editorial reviews (1 review)

Which is not to say that it's perfect. Fear of Fighting doesn't feel like a first novel, but it isn't far enough away from Be Good to feel like a sophomore effort either. It's like something a half-step between. Fowles' prose is a little too loose at times, and though her poetic flourishes and pop culture/consumer references can be clever (there was some fun alliteration, if you can believe it), they came off as forced almost as often.
