“Humor allows us to convey terror without being shunned, and to experience terror without being isolated.” I was embarrassed for the women in these stories, women who so often found themselves in absurd situations with misplaced hope. But I was embarrassed because I have been them— even if I haven‘t been a model‘s assistant or knife thrower or corpse smoker— and hindsight is 20/20.

Nutting‘s novel, Tampa, was delightfully weird and warped. These stories (to be fair, the first 1/3, anyway), were weird and warped but just didn‘t reach the high bar of that novel for me. #MountTBR

I just treated myself to this ebook because #readathon. I‘m loving these short stories! Tampa is one of my favorite books I never recommend to anyone, so maybe I can recommend this. 😏 #24in48 #24b4Monday

And I won a 24in48 prize! 🎉🎉🎉📚 Yay!

monkeygirlsmama Congrats on your win! 12mo
TheReadingMermaid Why do you never recommend Tampa? I'm curious because I'm curious about the book. I haven't read it yet. 🤔 12mo

Megabooks @TheReadingMermaid I love it. But there‘s VERY graphic, frequent sex between a teacher and a minor. Not for everyone. It‘s very well written, though! 12mo
Andrew65 Well done on the prize! 👍 12mo
Megabooks @Andrew65 Thank you! 😊 12mo
ohyeahthatgirl Haha, I feel the same about Tampa! Also The Devil All the Time. Sooo dark and violent (the dog doesn't make it) but so compelling. 12mo
Reviewsbylola Lol Tampa was too much. I bailed. 12mo

Some of these stories are pretty out there, others were just delightfully weird. Overall it was an entertaining read. Alissa Nutting is one of a kind.

Weird, psychedelic and oddly sensual! This was a very fun and gritty collection, recommend to anyone who loves dark fantastical feminist writing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (out of 5)

This book was full of weird stories and I loved it! Each story is titled after a job, even when I didn't see how the title actually was a job, or where the other was going with it it was always not what I expected. Well written and interesting, different than anything I've read in recent and not so recent memory. Not weird for weirdness sake but the author's mind is amazing.

readordierachel Love the cover! 1y

Ever read a book that's so strange and wrong that you can't help but cackle in delight that another humans brain thought it up? That's this book.

Effing weird and wonderful.

emilyhaldi Intrigued by the cover!!! 1y
Ashley_Nicoletto @emilyhaldi This book is so weird. The covering is fitting. 🤣 1y

Like everything Alissa Nutting writes, it‘s wonderful with just enough strangeness built in. Overall solid short story collection.

I have mixed feelings about this book. The stories are so bizarre. I can't decide if they are good or if the author was trying to be as weird as possible. I wonder if she was practicing galumphing... fitting unrelated objects, actions, etc. together.
I do love the cover.

ohyeahthatgirl I liked these stories, but I really loved her novel, Tampa. And she has a new novel out this year! 3y
