Jenny Zhang and Alissa Nutting are two of the most rollicking and subversive writers in contemporary American letters.

Jenny Zhang, already well-loved as a poet, is poised to astound with her first story collection, Sour Heart, the inaugural publication of Lena Dunham’s Lenny imprint at Penguin Random House.

Alissa Nutting’s second novel, Made for Love, is a tale of sex dolls and technology, and Nutting’s humor is a mirror to our current American insanity.

Together, Zhang and Nutting’s singular voices will make six-foot waves across the East River.
