Spring & Summer 2018 Projects Include / by Alyson Sinclair

Dictionary Stories by Jez Burrows (debut fiction / Harper Perennial, April 10th, 2018)

"Uproarious and ingenious, Burrows’s [Dictionary Stories] is more than 150 shorts composed entirely from example sentences taken from 12 different dictionaries. . . . This volume is a joyful celebration of idiosyncrasy and invention." —Publishers Weekly STARRED review!

Oceanic by Aimee Nezhukumatathil (poetry / Copper Canyon, April 10th, 2018)

"What a collection of vast wonder. As ever, Aimee Nezhukumatathil engages with the natural world, with love and passion, with motherhood, and does so gorgeously. These poems are oceanic individually and when collected as a whole. So much to admire here." —Roxane Gay

Captive Audience by Lucas Mann (nonfiction / Vintage, May 1st, 2018)

"Exuberantly intelligent and thoughtfully romantic, Captive Audience is an ode to two of America's favorite pastimes: falling in love, and watching ourselves on TV.  With uncommon insight and humor, Lucas Mann weaves a textile of analysis, feeling, and good old-fashioned voyeurism that not only captivates but entertains." —Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine

Belly Up by Rita Bullwinkel (debut fiction / A Strange Object, May 8th, 2018)

“These stunning stories take place in the spaces between ordinary objects and events. They are mysterious, strange, and fearlessly funny in their expression of human isolation, and they contain the existential surprises of great literature. Belly Up is a powerful debut by an unusually gifted writer.” —Lorrie Moore

Brother in Ice, by Alicia Kopf and translated from Catalan by Mara Faye Lethem (fiction / And Other Stories, June 5th, 2018)

"Alicia Kopf’s genre-defying book rises as clear and cold as an Arctic sea. . . . It achieves a fugitive poetry all of its own."  —Philip Hoare, author of Leviathan

People in the Room, by Norah Lange and translated from Spanish by Charlotte Whittle (fiction / And Other Stories, August 9th, 2018)

"Only the dominant machismo of her era meant that Norah Lange was usually noted more for her Norwegian beauty than for her stature as a great writer. In People in the Room, Lange’s intensity and clarity are reminiscent of Virginia Woolf’s finest moments in Mrs Dalloway." —El Cultural

And forthcoming for Fall 2018! 

Sketchtasy by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore (fiction / Arsenal Pulp, October 9th, 2018)

"Reading this was like a night of stealing other people's drinks, or a much-needed slap to the face, or a little of both. Bold, glittering, wise, fun, the novel as found poem alive in the mouth of this truth-telling queen, making her way through a wasteland of other people's lies (and a few of her own), and looking for something near paradise. Follow her and live." —Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night
