Amy Guth author ofThree Fallen WomenThursday, September 21st, 8:00 PMFREE
Amy Guth will be reading from THREE FALLEN WOMEN (published by So New Media).
Guth’s violent and shimmering debut novel is the story of three women caught in the vortex of breaking down. For Helen,a painter reawakening after a long period of self-destruction, peace is the choice between the love of her life and her new-found freedom. For Carmen, addiction will define the final throes of her broken heart. And for Frieda, the perfect housewife, catharsis is defined by sex and murder.
THREE FALLEN WOMEN unapologetically weaves graphic adventure with heartbreak and sweetness to fashion a new brand of fiction. Equal parts feminist battle cry, anti-love story, and twisted metamorphosis, this is a novel that refuses conventional storytelling and lands a hard suckerpunch in the gut of the patriarchy.
Amy G?th has written about sex, racism, hate crimes, art, blaxploitation and cult films for The Believer, Monkeybicycle, and Four Magazine, among others. She currently writes a monthly socio-feminist column called ?Elethromaniac? for OutCry Magazine. You can read her sarcastic rantings and vague questions to nobody in particular on her blog: www.bigmouthindeedstrikesagain.blogspot.com.
She has garnered a solid reputation in indie-lit circles as a consistently dynamic and entertaining live performer. Her readings are nothing short of performance art spectacles, including audience participation, props, and a punk rock energy that always attracts a large and enthusiastic crowd.
