Off Boulder Highway
Jennifer Battisti—an ‘80s latchkey kid, now mother—transforms narrative into a pop-culture artifact filled with people as beautiful as they are broken, unexpected heroes like L.L. Cool J and Hulk Hogan, trauma, addiction, disaster, and ritualistic paths to redemption.
Jennifer Battisti is a Las Vegas native. She won "Best Local Writer" by readers of Desert Companion (2019). Her chapbook, Echo Bay, was released in 2018 (Tolsun Books). Her work has appeared in or is forthcoming from Manzano Mountain Review, Thin Air Magazine, Coe Review, and The Briar Cliff Review.
