Black Mirror meets The Handmaid's Tale. This unsettling short story collection imagines what happens when technological advances and misogynistic horrors meet.

— Rachel

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, Amy Lee 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.
Amy Lee Lillard is the author of Exile in Guyville, winner of the 2022 BOA Editions Short Fiction Prize; The Past is a Grotesque Animal, forthcoming from University of Iowa Press; and Dig Me Out, from Atelier26 Books. Her fiction and nonfiction appears in Vox, LitHub, Barrelhouse, Foglifter, Epiphany, Off Assignment, Autostraddle, and more. She received the Iowa Author Award in 2023, and was named one of Epiphany's Breakout 8 Writers in 2018. She is also the co-creator and co-host of "Broads and Books," the funny and feminist book podcast. Lillard lives in Des Moines IA.
