2020 Whiting Award winner in fiction. In the words of the selection committee, "Andrea Lawlor's writing is mythic and gritty, lyric and witty, brazenly dirty and teeming with life. Their debut novel is at once a bacchanalian celebration of outlaw living and an old-fashioned bildungsroman, following its seductive, shape-shifting antihero at a gallop on the path to self-discovery. An exacting psychological authenticity puts the reader squarely into the body of a character who’s endangered and radiant at once."
