Q+A with Sarah Rose Etter about The Book of X

In July 2019 we will be publishing the first novel by Sarah Rose Etter, titled The Book of X, about a girl named Cassie whose stomach is twisted into the shape of a knot. Blake Butler says of the work, "Move over, Angela Carter, there's a new boss in the Meat Quarry, and she is fearless, relentless, ready to feast." It is a tremendously powerful and creative new work that is certain to blow your hair back.

What follows is an interview with Etter about her work.

Q+A with Abi Andrews about The Word for Woman Is Wilderness

In March, we will publish the debut novel by Abi Andrews called The Word for Woman Is Wilderness, an eco-feminist take on the Mountain Man myth. The story follows a young woman named Erin as she takes off from middle England, across Iceland, Greenland, and Canada, to Alaska, where she hopes to explore the wilderness from a feminist perspective. Her digressive journey touches on the writings of Rachel Carson, Ted Kaczynski, and Thoreau, and topics as varied as evolution, Nuclear War, the Letters of Last Resort, and the moon landings. It is a new kind of nature writing — one that crosses fiction with science writing and puts gender politics at the center of the landscape.

What follows is a Q+A with Abi about her book. Don't forget to mark your calendars for March 19, and if you're a bookseller, librarian, or interested in reviewing the book for a media outlet, you may request a review copy.

An Interview with Melanie Finn about The Underneath

With extreme excitement, I'm happy to share the news that next May 2018 we'll release a novel by Melanie Finn called The Underneath, which will be our first hardcover release. Similar to her "brilliant" literary thriller, The Gloaming, which was a New York Times 'Notable Book of 2016,' this new work traverses continents and characters with intelligence, grace, and empathy. Melanie Finn has proven herself to be a writer with incredible narrative instincts and her assured prose moves swiftly in this new literary mystery that I've been describing as a globe-trotting Winter's Bone. Here is an interview with Melanie about the work, its inspiration, the process of writing it, and violence against women in the age of [name redacted].
