Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls - Alissa Nutting

Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls, Alissa Nutting, Starcherone Books, 2010

...From the very first sentences of “Dinner,” the opening story in Alissa Nutting’s debut short story collection Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls, the reader knows he or she is in for something completely different and quite remarkable. Winner of the Sixth Starcherone Prize for Innovative Fiction, the collection is daring and wildly imaginative, full of fantastical and sometimes macabre situations that are at once funny, touching, and sometimes quite sad....

You can read the rest of my review of Alissa Nutting's Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls up on Best Damn Creative Writing Blog.

A complimentary copy of the book was provided by the publisher; all opinions expressed are my own.

Happy reading!
