About this title

Synopsis:

Fiction. FIVE LITTLE BITCHES chronicles the intertwining lives of five young women, each of whom is plagued by her own unique demons, and all of whom are devoted to music, the punk-rock lifestyle, and an underground code of solidarity. The novel details each of the girls' personal histories alongside the rise and fall of their band, Wet Leather. As the band progresses, the girls tour Canadian, American and European small towns and big cities, and all the alleys, gutters, back stages, vans, hotel rooms, highways and airways in between. At its heart, FIVE LITTLE BITCHES asks whether alternative music and youth culture can be an effective mode of subversion and empowerment.

"One glance at this book and you know: It ain't Anne Tyler... FIVE LITTLE BITCHES is funny, outrageous, and startlingly authentic... and she delivers what any reader wants—a novel that is vibrantly alive, never dull."—Prairie Fire

"a raw, punk energy courses through its veins."— Georgia Straight

"...it captures the essence of a sub-culture... The design of the text is as bold as its uncensored language. Every page is coloured with the chaos of punk rock shows, volatile relationships, pain, joy and humour—and illustrated with gritty black lines, graffiti art, band posters, set lists and photos... These are flawed, real women who are unapologetic. But as much as the characters of FIVE LITTLE BITCHES appear hell-bent on being abrasive, this thoroughly modern feminist novel ultimately succeeds because it portrays human vulnerability."—BC BookWorld
