She Writes Press, 2015

From the publisher:
“Brutal and magical and sexy as all hell. Dearman’s noir voice shatters boundaries I never knew existed.”

—Augusten Burroughs, New York Times best-selling author of Running With Scissors, Dry, and Magical Thinking

“A rich, noirish picture of olde New York with a punk sensibility that rocks the senses. Dearman’s characters are twisted, doomed, and filled with a lust for life.”

—Roberta Bayley, editor of Punk Magazine and author of Punk, Patti Smith, and Blank Generation Revisited

“Sapphically ardent, meta-absurd, and Nin-sexy all at once, Jill Dearman’s tale is a triumph of mysterious pleasures. Think of it as a Colette martini with a drop of Robbe-Grillet vermouth and a Jeanette Winterson olive.”

—Michael Atkinson, Village Voice and Movieline film critic, author of Hemingway Deadlights
