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.

Amy Lee Lillard is the author of Dig Me Out from Atelier26 Books. She was shortlisted for the 2017 Berlin Writing Prize and named one of Epiphany’s Breakout 8 Writers in 2018. Her fiction and nonfiction appears in Barrelhouse, Foglifter, Epiphany, Off Assignment, and other publications. Amy is the co-creator, co-host, and producer of Broads and Books, the funny and feminist book podcast.

Jeannie Vanasco is the author of two memoirs. Her latest, Things We Didn't Talk About When I Was a Girl (2019), was named a New York Times Editors’ Choice, a TIME magazine Must-Read Book of the Year, and the 2020 winner of the Ohioana Book Award in nonfiction. Her debut, The Glass Eye (2017), was honored as Indie Next and Indies Introduce selections by the American Booksellers Association. Her essays have appeared in The BelieverThe New York Times, and elsewhere. Born and raised in Sandusky, Ohio, she lives in Baltimore and is an assistant professor of English at Towson University. Her next book will be published in 2023.
