Hudson goes right to a place where violence comes from--uncomfortably close to desire for magic, God, sex, whatever might actually heal us--and doesn't turn away.--Kristin Dombek, author of The Selfishness of Others
One of the finest--and weirdest!--first novels I've read in quite some long time.--Tom Bissell, author of Apostle and coauthor of The Disaster Artist
Boys of Alabama perfectly captures the magic and inevitable heartache of young lust.--Kimberly King Parsons, author of Black Light
[Depicts] a brand of Southern-fried masculinity that is immediately recognizable and startlingly fresh. This is an exquisite book.--Nick White, author of How to Survive a Summer
Reminds us that behind so many of America's most rigid beliefs lies the lonely human heart: twitchy, slippery, alive.--Mikkel Rosengaard, author of The Invention of Ana
Boys of Alabama brilliantly reinvents the Southern Gothic... An absolutely magical novel.--Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks
A gripping, uncanny, and queer exploration of being a boy in America, told with detail that dazzles and disturbs.--Michelle Tea, author of Against Memoir
Genevieve Hudson dismantles and spins a new category of fairy tale for us, one that's equal parts dirt and splendor. A glinting, dark beauty. An incantation.--T Kira Madden, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girl
This novel is a love song to outsiders of all kinds, a queer love story about the ways we find to heal ourselves and each other, and proof that there can be magic amid the burdens of masculinity.--Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart and Abandon Me
Genevieve Hudson creates a new American erotics of longing and belonging, flush with want and desire, hope and home, translation and transformation.--Matt Bell, author of Scrapper
