2017 Could Still Be Cool
Today marks the 58th Presidential Inauguration, and it looks like this whole thing is actually fucking happening.
On a more positive note, 2017 could be cool.
We just released Joshua Mohr's "poetic, touching, inspiring, and deeply empathic" memoir, Sirens, which has garnered extremely high praise. Up next, we're releasing J.D. Wilkes' debut novel The Vine That Ate The South, and reissuing Rudolph Wurlizter's breathtaking The Drop Edge of Yonder. Then we've got Jana Beňová's kaleidoscopic Seeing People Off, N.J. Capmbell's unsettling debut Found Audio, and Bennett Sims' (back again) profound collection White Dialogues. The end of the year will see our first book of essays hit shelves (more info soon)—so, yeah, this year will be sweet.
Some other things I'm stoked for is the release of T2 Trainspotting (which includes the original cast), Life (directed by Daniel Espinosa) about a space crew that finds life on Mars, the return of HBO's Game of Thrones, the final season of HBO's Girls, the return of David Lynch's Twin Peaks, and new music from Father John Misty, Strand of Oaks, The National, Broken Social Scene, Gorillaz, St. Vincent, Richard Edwards (to name a few).
Some books dropping this year that seem rad include Homesick for Another World by Ottessa Moshfegh, Idaho by Emily Ruskovich, Sunshine State by Sarah Gerard (yay, Sarah!), and Somebody With a Little Hammer by Mary Gaitskill (to name a few).
