Much like Frank Bill's Crimes in Southern Indiana: Stories and Alan Heathcock's Volt: Stories, the characters who populate Lindsey Hunter's second collection of short stories, Don't Kiss Me, are broken, intensely raw human beings existing along the fringes of America's heartland. Each story offers a brief glimpse into lives distorted by oddball obsessions and all too common abuses of trust. What I found most striking about these stories is Hunter's near stream of conscious style--which harkens to the styles of Hubert Selby, jr. and Dennis Johnson--that perfectly captures the mindset and base nature of her characters. But most of all, it's Hunter's wholly believable characters that make this collection such an intense reading experience. These men, women, and children are your wives and husbands, teachers, next door neighbors, your nieces and nephews; they are the ignored and the barely there.

Simply put, Don't Kiss Me is a stunning collection and easily one of my favorite reads of 2013. Highly recommended.

I enjoy switching stories to keep it fresh. The constant use of southern references, poor speech, and the onions (jesus whats with the onions) got annoying. Half the stories interested me, but never really moved me by the punch. The feeling tapered down after the first few after the sample text. Something new to read I guess...its not like Ive ever written a book.

Every story in Hunter's collection brings it: throat-clenching voice, devastatingly real characters, sentences that'll spin you dizzy. One of the best collections I've read in a long time.

Hunter's sophomore offering kisses and tells. Smart little gall stones of prose to gnaw at your insides and make you moan with exquisite, painful delight. A great little read!
