Barbara the Slut and Other People

A fresh, honest, and darkly funny debut collection about family, friends, and lovers, and the flaws that make us most human.Fearless, candid, and incredibly funny, Lauren Holmes is a newcomer who writes like a master. She tackles eros and intimacy with a deceptively light touch, a keen awareness of how their nervous systems tangle and sometimes short-circuit, and a genius for revealing our most vulnerable, spirited selves.In ';Desert Hearts,' a woman takes a job selling sex toys in San Francisco rather than embark on the law career she pursued only for the sake of her father. In ';Pearl and the Swiss Guy Fall in Love,' a woman realizes she much prefers the company of her pit bulland herselfto the neurotic foreign fling who won't decamp from her apartment. In ';How Am I Supposed to Talk to You?' a daughter hauls a suitcase of lingerie to Mexico for her flighty, estranged mother to resell there, wondering whether her personal missionto come outis worth the same effort. And in ';Barbara the Slut,' a young woman with an autistic brother, a Princeton acceptance letter, and a love of sex navigates her high school's toxic, slut-shaming culture with open eyes.With heart, sass, and pitch-perfect characters, Barbara the Slut is a head-turning debut from a writer with a limitless career before her.From the Hardcover edition.
