Tips From the Editor

We love the unexpected, the peculiar, the seedy, and the absurd. We’ve published French, Italian, and German literature in translation, surreal Hollywood memoirs, radical political writing, and more, including a forthcoming new American novel.

If you are interested in submitting your work to us, please familiarize yourself with our titles and email us a description of your work; fiction and translation proposals always welcome.
