TNIRF-PGSPRAISE FOR The New and Improve Romie Futch

Romie Futch is imbued equally with the loopy lyricism of Barry Hannah and the whacked out paranoia of Philip K. Dick, the joyous farce of John Kennedy Toole, and the digital dystopia of William Gibson . . . . Elliott’s rambunctious tale snarls and growls on every page, aiming to plunge its lovely gnarled tusks right into the reader’s heart.”
New York Times Book Review

“VERDICT: A send-up of self-improvement schemes and self-serving science, this wise and funny book by Elliott (The Wilds) treats its characters tenderly and glimmers at the end.”

“Elliott makes us hear contemporary English in a new way.”
The New York Times Book Review

“The debut collection from Pushcart Prize–winning Elliott is a brilliant combination of emotion and grime, wit and horror. . . . Elliott’s gift of vernacular is remarkable, and her dark, modern spin on Southern Gothic creates tales that surprise, shock, and sharply depict vice and virtue.”
