The New Literary “It” Girl, Andrea Portes and her debut novel, HICK, hit the Los Angeles Times Bestseller List
“A bracing drama, a study in tenacity against the gnarled teeth of domestic storms.”
-- The Los Angeles Times
Luli McMullen, the 13-year-old protagonist of Portes' debut novel, one day bolts from her grim Nebraska life and aims herself West. “I am just a two-bit hick from the heartland,” Luli says, “but I do know one thing, my mama did not raise me to be skankin it in skanksville with the skanks.”
Portes has an M.F.A from University of California-San Diego, and is a Los Angeles nightlife website columnist.
