Short, punchy, visceral stories
A bush party leads to self-immolation. A cab ride ends in warfare. A squirrel is eviscerated. A universally impossible dare is accepted and proves not to be fatal. The weird kid triumphs. The stories in H. B. Hogan’s debut collection sizzle like butter on hot cast iron—they’re rich and dark and full of scrappy, sordid and sparkling humanity.
H. B. Hogan is a writer who lives in Toronto. Her fiction has been published in Taddle Creek, This Magazine, and subTerrain. She has a chapbook with Proper Tales Press. Her work has been acknowledged by the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council. When she is not writing, she works as a lawyer. When she is not lawyering, she tries to catch her breath.
“H. B. Hogan’s stories are dirty, fresh, and brutally funny, lingering on little human details until they’re just uncomfortable enough—then pushing a little farther. Their wickedness will stay with you for days.”—Michelle Winters
