In the seven stories and one novella collected in Unkempt, Courtney Eldridge gives life to characters of astounding originality. Probing the darker corners of the human psyche,
she shows—with a sly and unexpected sense of humor—the neurotic mind at work, the skewed perspective of an alcoholic parent, the nature of sexual conquest, and the hazards of
working in retail. Fresh, funny, and candid, Eldridge’s writing delivers a new and marvellous vision of life.
