F*ckface is a brassy, bighearted debut collection of twelve short stories about rurality, corpses, honeybee collapse, and illicit sex in post-coal Appalachia.

The twelve stories in this knockout collection--some comedic, some tragic, many both at once--examine the interdependence between rural denizens and their environment.

As fine a collection as you are ever likely to encounter. Leah Hampton may very well be Appalachia's finest story writer at work.
Tarrah Marie (Wayward Readers)
A solid collection of short stories expressly written with hints of dark perseverance. The simplicity of each storyline is the ironic brilliance of the collection’s depth. Leah Hampton writes of the true human condition through an entourage of wildly expressive, yet simplistic characters. Hampton holds the reader captive with a kaleidoscope of oddly perceptive tales. The set was creative and a joy to read.

Thank you to #NetGalley for the ARC of #Fckface which was read and reviewed voluntarily.

Really enjoyed this collection of short stories for the most part. As with any collection of short stories there may be one or two that don't really do it for you, I think that is expected.

Dark, dank, and enveloping.

My copy was provided by NetGalley for review, all opinions are my own.
