Kill for Love is the first half of a novel written during my two years as an M.F.A. student at California State University, Long Beach. The novel’s protagonist, Tiffany, is a privileged sorority member living in West L.A. The novel opens soon after her senior year has begun. Her usual vapid activities no longer satisfy her, and she cannot sleep. After a fraternity party, Tiffany gives into a homicidal urge, killing her date. She soon embarks on a murder spree while trying to maintain a relationship with her new love interest. I used Tiffany’s murderous habits to comment on class, gender and college culture.
