"Cut will stick you. It's like a movie, but much less boring. Reading it is part hot knives and part a hot knife to your throat. It's like a knife fight, except that as prose-wielding killers like Adam Cushman well know, there's no such thing as a knife fight." -- Sam Lipsyte, author of Home Land
"CUT is a wild ride of a novel. It'll have you on the seat of your pants anxiously anticipating the next crazy cut. Reading it feels dangerous, even slightly illegal. In two words--the book is a fucking blast."
Adam Cushman holds an MFA in fiction writing from Columbia University. His short stories have appeared in The Ampersand Review, Trop, The St. Petersburg Review, El Portal and elsewhere. He teaches fiction writing at Writing Workshops Los Angeles and is the President of Red 14 Films. His novel CUT is published by Black Mountain Press.
