Synopsis:

Winner of the 2005 Lambda Literary Award for Debut Lesbian Fiction.

"The Beautifully Worthless is an outrageous act of kindness." Eileen Myles

"She's insanely talented, it's mad. The Beautifully Worthless crisscrosses the USA, like Close to the Knives, like Kerouac, desperately seeking out everything occluded and driven, a frenzy of seeking frozen into poetry." Kevin Killian

"Ali Liebegott’s books evoke a life-affirming sensation that comes from embracing the pendular. Her ability to hit the right tone is scientific, almost violent in its precision a single word or observation, well-placed, can have a reader crying or laughing aloud." Evan Karp, Bomb Magazine

A runaway waitress leaves her lover, grabs her dog, and hits the highway. Ali Liebegott maps her travels in a series of hilarious and heartbreaking letters to the girl she left behind, and some of the most exquisite poetry written about love, heartache, and madness.
