Ampersand Books

We are after writing the major publishing world would leave behind - the difficult, the strange, the unspoken. We are after beauty and grace. Our authors are young, full of spit and verve, most publishing for the first time. We have no preconceived notions of what kinds of writing we are interested in publishing; sometimes our choices surprise even ourselves. However, we are extremely uninterested in genre fiction and social issues.
