"In her clear and visceral sentences that evoke a world both like and unlike our own, Picklesimer places you completely in the narrator's haunting, singular journey." --Rachel Khong, author of Goodbye, Vitamin
"Kill for Love scorches and scalds like a late-summer LA wildfire. Alongside her heroine, Tiffany, Picklesimer peels back the city's beautiful skin to reveal the brute forces required to maintain its shiny surfaces, and the result is as nakedly violent as it is dazzlingly compelling. This book will fuck you up... and you will fucking love it." --Zan Romanoff, author of Look
"Kill for Love weaves a darkly comedic tale of privilege and power set against the ever-present dangers Los Angeles faces with increasing intensity each year. Tiffany is captivating and wonderfully terrifying. --Lisa Glatt, author of The Nakeds
"A tonal blend of Promising Young Woman and American Psycho, Picklesimer's electric narrative masterfully combines propulsive genre pulp with incisive prose that dissects societal-imposed gender norms and subverts all expectations of what a female antihero can be." --Peter Malone Elliott
