Spanning genres, continents, and eras, Amy Lee Lillard’s multilayered debut story collection is all at once outrageously imaginative, provocative, and deeply absorbing. Ranging from the speculative to the historical, from magical realism to forensic realism, Dig Me Out carries the reader somewhere new — and newly thrilling — with every story, and constitutes a dazzling and rightfully dangerous work of literary art.

"Damn! I'm jealous of the sheer brio and adventuresomeness of these stories . . . This is a firecracker debut with a rock n roll wildness at its heart." —Karan Mahajan, National Book Award finalist and author of The Association of Small Bombs
