I almost got to publish TREASURE ISLAND!!! by Sara Levine, but Europa Editions/Tonga Books sent their acceptance letter A DAY AFTER I sent mine. Alice Sebold selected it personally. Sara’s great, though, and her book is fucking hilarious. A Confederacy of Dunces hilarious & beyond. Go get it.

      Short Dark Oracles was amazing.  Can’t wait to read this.

      At the time I went to the Amazon link – how could you do that, you imperialist, running-dog war pig – , Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought Greenblatt’s, Eco’s, and Murakami’s latest (English-language) releases.  Among you, and them, and the description–okay.

      today I shelved something from Europa at the bookstore where I work, and I remember touching it and thinking ‘feels nice’
