Release Date: 04-25-16


Lose your best friend because you finally Came Out. Spend days driving aimlessly because there's nothing to do. Serve your rapist breakfast because you need your job. Fall asleep to gunshots and sirens because that's the only sense of home you've ever known. Hold hands with ghosts. Your life is in pieces, but you can't be broken. Wipe off the blood. Tired of being told who to be, what to wear, how to act and who to fuck. Break the rules and learn fast how to never get caught. All you need is nothing, but you're happy with your car, guitar and camera. Throwing around polaroids of tits like they're money, you swap stories about adventures and realize that we're all running away from something.

Jigsaw Youth

"Tiffany Scandal is one of the most exciting new voices to emerge in years. A deft, masterful mix of both bizarro and horror. I definitely can't wait to read what she writes next!" -Brian Keene, author of The Rising and Ghoul

"Visceral and unpredictable, this book is a narrative that's distinctively told, with many a nod to punk rock incorporated into the larger work." -Vol. 1 Brooklyn

"Such a vivid attention to detail to her work that you can't possibly see everything she's put into it. She's a puzzler." - Electric Literature

"Scandal's writing-direct, willful, violently alive."


Tiffany Scandal is the author of three books. The first, THERE'S NO HAPPY ENDING, is part of the 2013/2014 New Bizarro Author Series from Eraserhead Press. Her second book, JIGSAW YOUTH (Ladybox Books, 2015), has made numerous "Best Of" lists and is available as an audiobook which the author has narrated herself. She returns to Eraserhead Press for the release of her third and newest book, titled SHIT LUCK, which is already making waves and considered to be a great introduction to the Bizarro Fiction genre.
