The Wire | Dan by Joanna Ruocco

Dan Joanna Ruocco | Radio Waves

From Joanna Ruocco's "dream-like and compelling"novel, Dan:

'She felt as she did when, like Ned Hat, she had been driven by circumstances to fill her mouth with hydrogen peroxide. She would drink the peroxide swishingly and grip the edge of the sink as her gums began to seethe. In those moments, her roaring mouth sounded like the inside of a conch shell, which sounded, in turn, like the outside of the ocean, and through these echoes--a form of geo-sonar--Melba felt that she could establish, briefly, a sense of her location on the earth. She could also establish other things. For example, her body had the consistency of a stone fruit, although with a different ratio of hard parts to soft parts, and those parts differently distributed.'

We are beyond excited to have Dorothy, a publishing project in Columbus for Jeni's Splendid Book Fair at The Flyover Fest on Saturday, May 13. They'll be hocking all their beautiful books and maybe even eating ice cream, or sippin' on some (free?) PBR.

Scoop up your All-Access Pass for just $24.99 before they're gone!
