So pleased, honored, grateful, excited, and all of the other positive adjectives to announce that my next collection of essays, I’ll Tell You In Person, will be one of the 2 books published in 2016 by CoffeeHouse Press/Emily Books.
Really indebted to my agent Chelsea Lindman for her belief in me and this book! And to all the people who’ve listened to me bitch and complain for the past 3 months, and the ones who have helped me in writing some of these essays. I’m pumped to work with the CH/EB team consisting of Ruth Curry, Emily Gould, Chris Fischbach, and Caroline Casey. I came up with the title because I constantly say “I’ll tell you in person” to my friends, all of who find it profoundly obnoxious.
From electric literature:
The Minneapolis-based publisher Coffee House Press will partner with Emily Books to launch its first imprint in 2016. Coffee House has been making waves in recent years with award-winning books like Ben Lerner’s Leaving the Atocha Station, Eimear McBride’s A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing, and Valeria Luiselli’s Faces in the Crowd. Emily Books is a Brooklyn-based electronic bookseller founded by Emily Gould and Ruth Curry. Currently, Emily Books functions as a combo book club, subscription service, and digital bookstore, picking titles by authors such as Eileen Myles, Renata Adler, and Karolina Waclawiak. Starting in 2016, though, they will be publishing two original titles a year through Coffee House.
In the press release, Coffee House Press publisher Chris Fischbach said: “We are energized by the opportunity to incubate their move into original work and to offer the kind of exciting selections they’ve made for the book club to a wider base of readers, and in multiple formats.” Emily Books co-founder Emily Gould said: “Their sensibility and ours are a perfect match, and we can’t wait to share the fruits of our collaboration with readers everywhere.”
