About This Title

In the stories of Exile in Guyville, probable futures and alternate realities take aim at unruly women, and show how they refuse to be ruled. With a speculative and surreal style, Lillard’s prize-winning collection explores a living museum of women from across time; a life app that forces women to comply with beauty standards; a future internment camp with a literal race for survival; and a band of middle-aged Riot Grrrls, taking vengeance with a new power. With humor, rage, and a razor-sharp eye for detail, Exile in Guyville renders the invisible as seen, and the powerless as empowered.

 

Praise for EXILE IN GUYVILLE

“Amy Lee Lillard's Exile in Guyville takes you on a deeply poetic journey of women in exile. Women out of time, women out of place, women out of their minds, and women out of luck leap from this haunting, beautiful, slender short story collection that stays with you long after you close the book. This is a terrific collection of sneakily powerful writing and an unfettered, wild imagination.”

— Chelsea G. Summers, author of A Certain Hunger


“Lillard’s collection is explosive and inventive, balancing humor and horror as each story explores the ways in which women’s identities are built, broken, and rebuilt. I would happily be exiled with these complicated, stubborn, fierce, indomitable women!”

 — Gwen E. Kirby, author of Shit Cassandra Saw

 

 Excerpt from "EXILE IN GUYVILLE"

“So the next Friday Night Art, I watched the donors, as they
watched me. I saw how they stood, chest out, spine straight,
feet forward. I saw how men of this future were a bit taller,
heartier, then men of my time. I saw how they were the same
too, how they were the ones who truly had choices.”
