Her debut collection, "F*ckface and Other Stories," was released by Henry Holt and was named one of the best books of 2020 by The Paris Review, the New York Public Library, Slate, and others. Leah's work explores rurality, heartbreak, honeybee collapse, and illicit sex in post-coal Appalachia. If THAT doesn't make for an interesting conversation, we don't know what will.
