About the Author

Amy Guth is the founder of Pilcrow Lit Fest and author of Three Fallen Women (So New Media Publishing, 2006), both of which she is often touring around to promote, as well as a forthcoming second novel. Previously, she has written for The Believer, Monkeybicycle, Ninth Letter, Four Magazine, Bookslut, The Complete Meal and Outcry, among others.

Currently, in addition to her blog, Bigmouth Indeed Strikes Again, she writes for The Nervous Breakdown, Hungry City and others, writing a thing here and there for this or that publication, and generally having a swell time. She also hosts the monthly Fixx Reading Series, which is generally held on the fourth Thursday of each month in Chicago.

Guth has lived all over the country, her most recent move being from NYC to Chicago in 2001, where she is staying put for now.

About the Book

Amy Guth's violent and shimmering debut novel is the story of three women caught in the vortex of breaking down. For Helen, a painter reawakening after a long period of self-destruction, peace is the choice between the love of her life and her new-found freedom. For Carmen, addiction will define the final throes of her broken heart. And for Frieda, the perfect housewife, catharsis is defined by sex and murder.

Three Fallen Women unapologetically weaves graphic adventure with heartbreak and sweetness to fashion a new brand of fiction. Equal parts feminist battle cry, anti-love story, and twisted metamorphosis, this is a novel that refuses conventional storytelling and lands a hard suckerpunch in the gut of the patriarchy.

Amy Guth has garnered a solid reputation in indie-lit circles as a consistently dynamic and entertaining live performer. Her readings are nothing short of performance art spectacles, including audience participation, props, and a punk rock energy that always attracts a large and enthusiastic crowd. Her debut novel brings that same energy to print.
