Courtney Eldridge’s Unkempt

Courtney Eldridge’s debut collection of short stories, Unkempt, gets a favourable review in the San Francisco Chronicle. At the end of a description of the story “Fits and Starts” — here’s an excerpt — the reviewer, Julie Foster, says “Eldridge is unrelenting. Each story is painful, exhausting and provocative.”
