Reviews
"Amy Lee Lillard's Exile in Guyville takes you on a deeply poetic journey of women in exile. Women out of time, women out of place, women out of their minds, and women out of luck leap from this haunting, beautiful, slender short story collection that stays with you long after you close the book. This is a terrific collection of sneakily powerful writing and an unfettered, wild imagination." -- Chelsea G. Summers, author of A Certain Hunger"Lillard's collection is explosive and inventive, balancing humor and horror as each story explores the ways in which women's identities are built, broken, and rebuilt. I would happily be exiled with these complicated, stubborn, fierce, indomitable women!" -- Gwen E. Kirby, author of Shit Cassandra Saw
