Author Alissa Nutting

Location: Swift Hall Room 106, University of Chicago
Admission: free
 

Nutting's writing has appeared in Tin House, Fence, BOMB, and the fairy tale anthology My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me. Her short story collection, Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls, was selected by Ben Marcus as winner of the 6th Starcherone Prize. "Alissa Nutting's stunning debut collection, Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls, reanimates the deadest of dead pans to a state of enameled kabuki solar veneer - a sanctified, sublime, full-throated and full-throttled static panic. These fictions are panoplies of syntactic semantic seismic wonders. Don't look now but you are looking at a sun raised to a higher power, and it's not blinking." Michael Martone
