What We Talk About When We Talk About Punk ~ Press Resources

Available late spring 2017

Love letters to way-too-late whiskey-drunk nights, stolen hearts and stolen kisses, small-town parking lots and bad decisions and even badder girls, WWTAWWTAP is a gritty and gorgeous series of riffs on living and loving punk. Like your very first show all over again, it'll set your blood on fire.
-Sarah McCarry, author of the Metamorphoses trilogy and publisher/editor of the Guillotine series
