We’re excited to share with you the full FALL CATALOG for 2018 today, including all titles from The Accomplices (Civil Coping Mechanisms & Writ Large Press).
Out Today (Oct 4, 2018):
by Anne-Marie Kinney
NOVEL / LITERARY FICTION / LOS ANGELES
Kinney’s precise and considered prose examines the insistence on reshaping the past through the lens of one’s own trauma and conceived desires as a means of moving forward. Why do we so often look for solace and redemption through others, pushing ourselves to do anything for them, even when it harms everyone involved?
Hot, gritty, swirling, hypnotic and sensual… an unhinged, sweetly sinister sun-baked noir; all danger, doomed love, and compassion.
—Ben Loory, author of Tales of Falling and Flying
The Fat Kid
by Jamie Iredell
NOVEL / LITERARY FICTION / EXPERIMENTAL / WESTERN
A haunting and pulls-no-punches book about a struggling, damaged son and his brutal, damaged father, and the strange uncanny man who seems master of both of them. Kind of like what might happen if William Faulkner started a novel about fathers and sons, had a heart attack, and then David Lynch was called in to finish it.
—Brian Evenson, author of A Collapse of Horses
I don’t write about race
by June Gehringer
POETRY / MEMOIR / AUTOBIOGRAPHY / ASIAN-AMERICAN / LGBTQ
[T]his book doesn’t write about race, it writes about the meanings we make. “I write about erasure,” Gehringer writes, and “I write about silence.” But this isn’t just a story, it’s a space. We, as readers, enter into accountability for our dealings with race, transness, family, and class… how it really feels to be placed in proximity to those who fail to love us.
—Ginger Ko, author of Inherit
by Brian Alan Ellis
NONFICTION / HUMOR
Writing is like trying to make sense of an inside joke you have with yourself but haha joke’s on you ’cause the joke is more sad than funny.
Ellis is the rock and roll king of sad. Most happy people only wish they could be as sardonic, humorous, and at once morose as Ellis. But they can’t.
–Elle Nash, author of Animals Eat Each Other
Released Sept 2018:
by Andrew Choate
MEMOIR / CREATIVE NONFICTION / SELF-HELP / MYSTERY
Free of hierarchical notions about where or from whom one gets an education, Choate gleans knowledge from disparate sources… His father — a mercurial lover of film and art — at his most vulnerable provides the aching center to this text but from there it radiates out in beautifully penetrating waves, touching food, music, sex, and all kinds of dark matter.
–Margaret Wappler, author of Neon Green
by Joseph Grantham
POETRY / AUTOBIOGRAPHY
In TOM SAWYER, Joseph Grantham is pulling it all back and stripping the language clean. These are poems about broken hearts and growing up, packed full of jokes and weirdo thoughts from a weirdo mind. When I think about Joseph Grantham, I think, ‘Ah…finally…the last living person who doesn’t judge or shout for a living.’ What sweet poems, from a sweet sweet man.
—Scott McClanahan, author of The Sarah Book
