Taylor Grieshober’s debut fiction collection, Off Days, is now available for purchase on Amazon

I read the whole thing. Very nice.

Taylor Grieshober astutely captures the ambivalence of a generation hung out to dry by Baby Boomers without the self-involved apathy. Her characters depict life in the Rust Belt as I know it, absurd and often bleak, but still hopeful. Off Days is honest, funny and heartbreaking. Grieshober is my favorite Pittsburgh writer, and certainly, one to watch.

Taylor Grieshober is a magician: a young writer who makes all our “off-days” gleam with dark comedic brilliance. The young women in these stories meet our contemporary moment with a stoicism at once wise, off-kilter, and heartbreaking. You’ll meet children much older than their unraveling parents, and young women navigating the absurdities of modern life and love. Prepare for the quiet sucker-punch, for the sentence that leaves you breathless. Catch your breath while you can. Grieshober, that generous comedian of the grieving heart, is about to zing you again.

It’s a bop!
