New and Featured Titles

 

Going Anywhere

“Smelcer clearly knows his way around Alaskan mountains.”
David Roberts, author of The Mountain of My Fear, etc.

Lonesome Trails

Like Hill’s superb debut, East of Denver (2014), this one isn’t really a crime novel, but it surely is a damn fine, if distinctly peculiar, country noir.
Booklist

Going Anywhere Cover

"David Armstrong is a writer we've been waiting for, and Going Anywhere is a milestone collection."
—Douglas Unger

Seasons

"Gems of langage in English and in translation echoing across the globe." —Joseph Heithas, author of Poison Sonnets

"A thought-provoking and moving coming-of-age story."
Publishers Weekly

Lone Wolves

“A beautiful and moving story of courage and love.”
Ray Bradbury

“Powerful, eloquent and fascinating, showcasing a vanishing way of life in rich detail.” —Kirkus

Wonder Chamber

"Malloy demonstrates a real flair for weaving an engrossing historical puzzle into her mystery plot. Carefully assembling her story, she gently reels us in. [The] third series entry is perfect for readers craving an elaborate scheme." —Libraray Journal, starred review

Being Dead

“In prose that is unadorned yet fiercely affective, White conveys a true and solemn poignancy." -—ForeWord Reviews

"Jacob White can write!"
—Padgett Powell

All Sins Forgiven by Charles Coe

A clear-eyed and insightful portrait of one man’s parents, by turns
tender, humorous, and hard-edged, deeply personal yet universal

goldmonkey

"Each of these stories contributes to…an understanding of a community and the men and women trying to make their way within it. Learst writes of them with both clarity and compassion."
—ForeWord

 

 

Giulio

"Both very funny and disturbingly sad, this latest work weaves an ever more relaxed surface over an ever more acute set of questions.”
—Michael Springate, novelist, playwright, screenwriter

immanence

"This unpretentious book is the work of a master."
Edith Pearlman, author of Binocular Vision; Nation Book Award finalist; winner, 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award

"Rosen is a yarn spinner in the best sense of the word."
—Publishers Weekly

Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week

Louis

"Louis’ music still vibrantly lives around the world and his spirit of humaneness lives in Travels with Louis."—Nat Hentoff

The Louis Armstrong I knew is in this novel. Reading TRAVELS WITH LOUIS is like visiting with my friend again.” —Jack Bradley

An ABC Best Books for Children pick (American Bookseller's Association)

death

"Graziano… writes with intelligence, mischief, pace, and economy… to bat around the big questions. “What is love? What is art?” he asks playfully, though not frivolously… fun and provocative."
—Publishers Weekly

Married to Her

"A hilariously brazen memoir.... Ira Wood lets his delirious inner Portnoy off its leash, no holds barred, and what a romp!"
John Nichols, author of The Milagro Beanfield War

“A slim yet raucous romp through a novelist's life.”
—Kirkus
