Available - We'll have it for you ASAP!


In Bulletproof Girl, Quinn Dalton offers eleven raw and witty stories powered by a rich mix of women's voices.
The stakes are high in these diverse narratives. "Dinner at Josette's" explores the nature of female friendships in the story of a woman whose best friend is in love with a gay man. "Midnight Bowling" follows seventeen-year-old Tess as she escapes her fanatically religious mother's pipe dreams and her dead father's legacy. In "Lennie Remembers the Angels," a woman confronts a long-ago vision as she recovers from a hit-and-run accident. In "Graceland," a once supportive businessman's wife turns to murder. And in "How to Clean Your Apartment," a jilted lover creates a spring cleaning reference guide as she tries to get over her man.
At times tragic and savagely funny, Bulletproof Girl is a dynamic anthology from a strong new voice in fiction.

About the Author

Quinn Dalton has had her short stories published in various literary magazines, including StoryQuarterly, ACR Magazine, and The Kenyon Review. An earlier draft Bulletproof Girl was a semi-finalist for the Iowa Short Fiction Award last year. When writing, she draws from her many travels throughout the US, Europe, Russia and the Baltic States and her many barely-rent-paying jobs she's held over the years, such as tutor, door to door saleswoman, pub worker, antique store and photo shop worker, and teacher. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and young daughter. She is also the author of a novel, High Strung, published by Atria Books.
