Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self

"Danielle Evans's whipsmart first story collection charts the liminal years between childhood and the condition dubiously known as being a grown-up...Fiercely independent, all of Evans's characters struggle for a place in a world intent on fencing them out. But as her title suggests, the biggest obstacles they face are often their own selves."
