In fall 2019, Vanessa Davis (Make Me a Woman) will ask Is There a Rational adult Anywhere? in a collection of her Terry Southern Award-winning comics for the Paris Review.
Fall 2019 will also see the release of Ganges by Kevin Huizenga, in which the author dives deep into central character Glenn Gange’s insomnia and explores dream worlds, internal strife, and one’s relationship with the world.
In King of King Court, Travis Dandro recounts his childhood with a drug-addicted biological father, alcoholic stepfather, and overwhelmed mother. The 560-page black-and-white softcover volume is available in spring 2019 for an MSRP of $34.95.
Nick Maandag’s debut book, The Follies of Richard Wadsworth, pushes interpersonal boundaries to preposterous extremes with deadpan satire and unexpected plot twists. The 200-page black-and-white paperback is out in spring 2019. MSRP is $24.95.
