Everything Was Fine Until Whatever
Chelsea Martin
Future Tense Books
$11.00, 120 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1-892061-35-5

Anything is possible in Chelsea Martin's bizarre and endearingly honest collection of stories, lists, flash fictions, and revealing factoids. Everything Was Fine Until Whatever is a poker-faced and unpredictably comic tour de force. Festooned with artwork and hand-written notes, this is a grand debut by a magical new talent.

"Chelsea Martin offers a quirky blend of absurd erudition, hard-eyed candor, unexpected sentiment, tiny subliminal footnotes, and loopy artwork. The illustration alone for her "to do" list is worth the price of the book. Plus she's insane."
-Mike Topp, author of Shorts Are Wrong

"Chelsea Martin's shapeshifting debut is not only wonderful and wacko, but, goddamn, something honest, something new." - Blake Butler, author of Ever.
