Beginning with a story of an ex sex-worker drifting through a small rural town in the south, and ending with a young woman’s wedding night, who learns from her new husband what it takes to kill a man, Nash writes across the complications of working class women, rendering their desires with visceral prose and psychologically dissecting the fundamental root that threads her work: craving and the conflicts within.
"Nudes is a collection that feels multigenerational. It crawls across the soggy cigarette ash carpets of single wide America to upscale apartments and the discolored bathtubs of suicide motels. Elle Nash shows the ugly venal addictions of a post-last call society." Jake Blackwood (Twitter)

“This was horrible. I get the feeling Nash had a tumblr account where she wrote awful line-break poetry about drugs and serial killers in-between nasty posts about her daddy kink. And I wish she’d left it there instead of bundling it up into a novel and having it published.” -GOODREADS REVIEW
