Because we are tiny, I could only choose one manuscript at this time, and it is one that I love so much: Sophie Mayer's kaolin Or, How Does a Girl Like You Get to Be a Girl Like You?
Sophie Mayer's kaolin Or, How Does a Girl Like You Get to Be a Girl Like You? invokes/transcribes the way our ancient mythologies continually play out inside our contemporary worlds/lives and are vastly, deeply beveled, and glowing; it does this in a grounded, specific way; and further it affirms the difficulty and the glory of growing up, of coming fully into ourselves despite/amid all the little and the big janky tyrannies. In celebration and lament it revels in our trashy, mundane ephemera, of which we can't help but make meaning because meaning is there and it is the stuff of our very lives. All this is naturally of a piece with the book's living comprehension of the multitudinousness of our linguistics, of our disciplines, and of our seas.
We will launch a year from now and we will publish a book or two a year after that. Look for us at AWP next month, sharing a table with Chax. We are also having a reading on the Friday midday with our sibling presses, Chax and Dusie. :)
