Congratulations to Jerome Charyn, whose A Loaded Gun: Emily Dickinson for the 21st Century has just been named to the Phi Beta Kappa Christian Gauss Award Short List. The book has also appeared on the PEN/ Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography Longlist and is a Firecracker Award Finalist.
“With smaller print runs and often an intimate relationship with readers, these smaller houses are able to take bigger risks than their larger counterparts and are finding truly excellent writers outside the mainstream. Don’t miss works from Open Letter, Deep Vellum, Bellevue Literary Press, Catapult, Restless Books, Two Dollar Radio and Los Angeles’ Unnamed Press; like more established independents Graywolf and McSweeney’s, they are delivering so much genuinely exciting fiction that they make it look easy.”
