A short allegorical bizarro tale about struggle, acceptance, and self-actualization - this thing was sad and strange and ultimately triumphant in all the right ways. I thought it was great.

Colt and his rifle Winnie live in the aptly named Ghost Town, a struggling farm community where at present, there aren’t many citizens left. They really only have each other. Their bond is strong and there is an endearing quality to their tender moments together. Winnie is about to discover something about herself that will change everything.

A striking debut, the book is well-rounded and flows gracefully. I was wholly invested in Winnie’s journey regardless of where it went. The narrative has th

"You have not become anything you were not already."

I absolutely loved this book. Bizarro is such a fascinating genre - although the storylines are wild and strange, some of the books are incredibly heartfelt and thought-provoking. Winnie is one of these books. Winnie stomped on my heart, but it's also a story of hope and resilience. I've thought about this book many times since I finished it, and there's so much packed into this small novella. I enjoyed this one very much, and I can't recommend

Winnie is a beautiful, raw, and tragic novella. It's a fast, quick read about trans rights / acceptance and gun violence in America. While the book certainly isn't perfect (the pacing for the first thirty pages or so in particular could be slowed down quite a bit), it is incredibly timely an important. If you're a fan of either bizarro, LGBTQ literature, or books with a political punch, Winnie is an absolute must. It's a wonderfully bizarre and original love story, and it will definitely win you ...more

It’s been a few days since I finished Katy Michelle Quinn’s debut novella, Winnie, and I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s a beautiful story of self discovery that elevates bizarro fiction to an entirely new level. Quinn’s prose is lyrical, textured, and affecting. The plot is fiercely original and manages to be both uplifting and heartbreaking. The world needs more stories from the brilliant imagination of Katy Michelle Quinn. Do yourself a favour and check it out.

Within a scant 90 pages Winnie manages to be weird, funny, sad and disturbing all at once. I read it in a single sitting, and like all the best bizarro, I can see it sticking with me for a long time. Great stuff.

Striking in all the weird and brutal and beautiful ways; resonant and memorable. I'll need to write more about it later (IY"H soon). One of the most pleasant book surprises of the year for me.
