Lambda Literary Award FINALIST 2014


“Everything is written beautifully, and there’s nothing hiding the cruelty. It makes for an uncomfortable read.”—Ariel Speedwagon, Velvet Park

“Devoid of pretense or fear, Woods tells a not so “normal” coming-of-age story set in the stretched-out underbelly of rural America. Smart but unworldly, Woods creates a new world for the contemporary misfit where circus performers, Catholic workers, fire jugglers, and power wives sit at the same table. A “gooble gobble” successor, Woods’s edgy sensuality doesn’t second-guess. Her language is clear, her home somewhere and nowhere.” —2013 Library Journal Spring Pick

“A natural and philosophical writer, Woods is propelled by her commitments to language and desire to illuminate ghettos of consciousness: geographic, economic, and emotional.”
Sarah Schulman, author of Rat Bohemia and Gentrification of the Mind: Witness to a Lost Imagination

“This book will grab you by the throat and not let up for 550 pages and when you’re finished you’ll wish you were back in its jaws.”—Lambda Literary
