A Well-Made Bed, written collaboratively with Laurie Alberts, is a novel of friendship, lust, plagiarism, dementia, murder, betrayal, and a mysterious wheel of Peruvian cheese

"Centered on the conspiratorial relationship between two women, A Well-Made Bed, fittingly a collaboration by two women, explores how seemingly simple people can be swept up in dangerous schemes. These modern Vermonters exhibit a wily, formidable strength as they scrape their way out of bad situations, making the best of the cards they've been dealt." -- Annie Atherton, Shelf Awareness

"The first time I read a story by Abby Frucht I experienced something we all want when engaging with art. I felt completely full, and thrilled, and scared. I walked out into the cold night and kept walking. Not lost, but needing to be in the world because after reading Frucht the world felt different, it felt more intimate. The Bell at the End of a Rope is an incredible, ecstatic, funny, dark collection. Reading it is much like watching a house on fire: there is danger, but there is also beauty, light, and above all...heat" --Matthew Dickman
