Jaime Boust is a writer whose work ranges from literotica to magical realist alternate histories. She is the winner of the 2016 David Carr Prize for Emerging Writers at SXSW. Her fiction includes Book Club and Conquest, stories that stroke the zeitgeist of sex-forward female comedy tackling topics of beauty, aging, relationships, and self-worth with a feminist bent. She got her wits about her on the hills of San Francisco, the streets of London, the sewers of Paris, and the suburban wilds of Oakland. These days you'll find her dodging traffic in Los Angeles with her husband and two kids.
