Merricat Mulwray’s Debut Novel
Sourpuss is a blistering satire of the depraved and entitled culture that pervades college campuses.
Mallory Wahl loathes the campus party scene . . .
"... As anyone who has listened to me talk about “Heathers” or “Sharp Objects” knows, I have a hard time resisting any story that makes me go “That is so f—ed up” while continuing to consume it without hesitation. It is a relief for me to say “Sourpuss” easily falls within that category."
The Review / University of Delaware(Read the full review here)
"From slut shaming, to toxic masculinity and the use of misogynistic language and the objectification of women, you’ll want to ask “Is this allowed?” The answer is yes, and it is necessary."
The Good Five Cent Cigar / University of Rhode Island(Read the full review here)
"...it is exceptionally refreshing to read about a female character unashamed to flaunt her ego ... the novel has no shortage of characters that make an immediate impact on readers."
The Daily Californian / UC Berkeley
“Perhaps one of the most offensive sick “jokes” in literary history... strongly written... brutally honest and graphic.”
Merricat Mulwray is the collaboration of two sisters. They live in Los Angeles where they hatch plans and develop schemes, sometimes these turn into novels.
My purpose isn’t to spend my nights barfing and sleeping with randoms in filthy locations.

Thank you @natxwalton @udreview for the great article! One of the opening lines of “Sourpuss” is an internal monologue from a college senior in reference to her fellow college-aged peers: “Come summer, I’ll be far, far away from this bunch of idiot children and their worthless degrees.” It is a bold start to what can easily be referred to as a bold debut novel from Merricat Mulwray, a pair of sisters out of Los Angeles.

Went to the Velvet Buzzsaw Q&A with the director Dan Gilroy - an inspiring gent who immediately relaxed the room when he walked in. He spoke humbly, explained his process and pointed out how he found it difficult to blend the satire, thriller, and horror genres. He also mentioned how some people are having trouble "getting it". Check out the film on @netflix !! It's fun, wacky and all that and then some. #merricatmulwray #velvetbuzzsaw #dangilroy #film #netflixs #satire #horror #Q&A #screening #jakegyllenhaal #nowplaying #cinemaislife #cinemaforever #ReneRusso #zaweashton #ToniCollette #JohnMalkovich #cinema #landmark #losangeles #saturdaynight #thriller #filmmaker #art #paintings #auteaur #filmmaking #saturday
