Lindsay Hunter tells the stories no one else will in ways no one else can. In this down and dirty debut she draws vivid portraits of bad people in worse places. A woman struggles to survive her boyfriend's terror preparations. A wife finds that the key to her sex life lies in her dog’s electric collar. Two teenagers violently tip the scales of their friendship. A rising star of the new fast fiction, Hunter bares all before you can blink in her bold, beautiful stories. In this collection of slim southern gothics, she offers an exploration not of the human heart but of the spine mixing sex, violence and love into a harrowing, head-spinning read.

BuzzFeed Books' Best Book of 2014
Perry and Baby Girl and two teenage girls with very little to lose. They're best friends with sharp edges, and they cut to bleed--no one's off-limits, not even each other. To survive the loneliness and boredom of a world that pays them no mind, they spend their nights sneaking out and stealing cars and their days sleeping through class. But when a dangerous stranger from the Internet begins to give them all the attention they never knew they craved, Perry and Baby Girl have to decide what their friendship is truly worth in the face of desperation and violence.
Lindsay Hunter is a killer stylist, "the mistress of grit" (Jami Attenberg), and Ugly Girls is fast and dirty, grim yet gorgeous, dying to be devoured. Come and get it.
