Everything Was Fine Until Whatever by Chelsea Martin
Anything is possible in Chelsea Martin’s bizarre and endearingly honest collection of stories, lists, flash fictions, and revealing factoids. Everything Was Fine Until Whatever is a poker-faced and unpredictably comic tour de force. Festooned with artwork and hand-written notes, this is a grand debut by a magical new talent. Check out her own web site for extra goodness. We were proud to publish this, her first of many books.
“Chelsea Martin offers a quirky blend of absurd erudition, hard-eyed candor, unexpected sentiment, tiny subliminal footnotes, and loopy artwork. The illustration alone for her “to do” list is worth the price of the book. Plus she’s insane.” -Mike Topp, author of Shorts Are Wrong
“Chelsea Martin’s shapeshifting debut is not only wonderful and wacko, but, goddamn,something honest, something new.” – Blake Butler, author of Ever.
