Amy Guth's violent and shimmering debut novel is the story of three women caught in the vortex of breaking down. For Helen,a painter reawakening after a long period of self-destruction, peace is the choice between the love of her life and her new-found freedom. For Carmen, addiction will define the final throes of her broken heart. And for Frieda, the perfect housewife, catharsis is defined by sex and murder.

Three Fallen Women unapologetically weaves graphic adventure with heartbreak and sweetness to fashion a new brand of fiction. Equal parts feminist battle cry, anti-love story, and twisted metamorphosis, this is a novel that refuses conventional storytelling and lands a hard suckerpunch in the gut of the patriarchy.

Amy Güth has garnered a solid reputation in indie-lit circles as a consistently dynamic and entertaining live performer. Her readings are nothing short of performance art spectacles, including audience participation, props, and a punk rock energy that always attracts a large and enthusiastic crowd. Her debut novel brings that same energy to print.

  • Thick with physicality, written in language as multifaceted and fluid as the liquids and semi-liquids it so often describes - raindrops beading together, blood coagulating, paint swirling down a shower drain, globules of semen dribbling down a leg - this striking novel seeks to give a palpable, clutching voice to the emotional extremes experienced by three women. At one point, one of them reflects on an African ritual of "wailing days, when the women gather in a home and scream and sob the grief out of themselves," taking comfort in the physicality of the act, the way such gut-deep sound seems to push "grief out of the system, as it if were poison." (75, 76) It is an apt metaphor for this book, at once a torrent of expression and, in its precise stylization, a carefully crafted ritual of catharsis.

    This novel is also, on the level of plot, a story of reinvention, of weaving oneself together after having been broken into scattered shards. One woman dips into opiates, another sliced open men's bodies with a scalpel, performing speedy surgery-in-reverse - "Vengeance for the souls of a million fallen women who never mustered up the ovaries to fly away," is how she describes her "campaign" of killing. (122) Another continues to quest after the happiness promised by myths of romance, or at least "being wanted for a companion, not a lay," imagining a Valentine pulsing beneath her flesh, muscles, and living cage of bones. (62)

    Raw fears, desires, and hatreds are strung into such garlands of imagery. Early in the text a physical metaphor is offered for a theory of haunting, the idea that there are "slinking, ethereal ropes... constantly trailing behind us, thinning when we are on autopilot and thickening more and more as we get closer to our authentic primal selves." (17) Organic traces, smeared through the very spirit of the air - this is itself a useful metaphor for the energy that writhes and twitches through this book.

  • Heck, it's an excellent novel, period, not just debut -- I just put "debut" in there because I felt like the title needed another word in it.

    3FW tells the story of three different women with three very different lives and approaches to the events and circumstances they encounter, but who, even in their diversity, cope with somehow similar issues in their own ways. The meticulous writing style is an excellent contrast to the deep and universal issues addressed in the book and produces wonderful imagery, conjuring with equal verisimilitude scenes of joy or despair, conventional behavior or absurdity. A great read; hopefully one of many to come from this talented writer.

  • Here's the thing, I know the author. She's a lovely lady. Imagine if I loved her and didn't love her book. That would be bad. Maybe not bad, but challenging. "I can't come to your reading, I have to retile my bathroom."

    Lucky for me, I enjoyed this novel. There were times when the images were so shocking, that I set it down and walked away. But I always came back to keep reading.

    I found the book to be a challenging read--it is intense, it is visual, it is poetic. The images she strings together are wonderful and you'll want to reread the section written from the bullet's point of view.

    This is the way that post-post-modern is meant to be written. Read it, recommend it, give it to your favorite reader.

  • Bold and daring. Descriptive, provocative and full of sensuality. Guth writes in a poetic fashion that is an important contrast to the harsh stories of these three woman. So New Media was smart in picking up this first time novelist. She has a very unique style in her expression and should bring the book world a crisp breath of fresh air. I look very forward to more work from this budding novelist.

  • What can you say about a book that opens with ritualistic sexual burning? The whole thematic wad, pun intended, is shot in that scene, especially with the (non-)reaction of one of the "fallen" women. Yet, the images do linger; the points about choices (taken and not taken) are well made. A very good debut. Perhaps more like 3.5 stars.

  • This book made my head spin. It was like reading a thousand little things that had happened to me or someone I knew and they suddenly made sense. I had to go buy a bottle of cheap wine and some cigarettes to stop my head from spinning. Excellent read.

  • Amy, you're awesome. Can I use that word again? Great job. I have to admit, I did get a little confused at some parts of the book, but everything came together. Have you started writing your next book?
