‘Faster’ Writer Chloe Caldwell Is Releasing A Collection Of Essays

The Faster Times’ own talented and beloved Chloe Caldwell is releasing a collection of essays called Legs Get Led Astray. The collection will be released on April 3rd (which happens to be Chloe’s birthday!) but it’s available for pre-order at a special price here. It’s sure to include the wit, humor and emotional resonance we’ve come to know and love from Chloe.

Here is the synopsis from Future Tense Books:

Legs Get Led Astray is a provocative collection of essays that vividly rockets the reader through one young woman’s life. Chloe Caldwell beautifully and bluntly escorts you through her childhood dreams, her first loves, her most unguarded sexual exploits, bookstore crushes, babysitting jobs, heartbroken wanderlust, and the suicide of a lost lover. Caldwell’s writing remarkably explores the genre of personal non-fiction and has been featured in The Rumpus, The Faster Times, and Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, and is forthcoming in The Nervous Breakdown and New York Times.

For those of you unfamiliar with Chloe, she writes the “Love and Music” section here at The Faster Times, and also contributes to “Love and Death.” Here are some of her recent articles to check out:
