Bulletproof Girl

Quinn Dalton is that rare being, a writer who combines fierce passion and keen intelligence. Both are amply present in the far-ranging stories of this splendid collection.”
—Margot Livesey, author of Banishing Verona

“Bulletproof Girl is a smart, subtle, delightful book. Dalton has written a marvelous first collection about what happens when, inevitably, the world’s slings and arrows pierce that false and flimsy vest.”
— Michael Griffith, author of Bibliophilia

“With prose as precise and elegant as calculus, Quinn Dalton’s Bulletproof Girlportrays tough, tender women struggling through the puzzles of modern life. Her vision is unflinching and always surprising. These stories gleam.”
— Karl Iagnemma, author of On the Nature of Human Romantic Interaction

“Brilliant, wild, scathing, hilarious – these deeply psychological stories of our contemporary world are essential reading. Dalton is one of the most enthralling short story writers of her generation.”
— Julianna Baggott, author of Girl Talk, The Miss America Family and The Madam
