We've packed a suitcase full of galleys and are headed to Chicago this weekend for the American Library Association annual conference. If you will be there, come visit us at booth 3222B and help us celebrate a great spring of awards and an exciting fall with new projects and, always, new poems.
"Drawing was going into time; it was pulling the process of thought apart, and what was most profound was that it left a record behind, a map: the drawing itself."—Renee Gladman
We are so excited to announce the publication of our first art book, Renee Gladman's Prose Architectures! These extraordinary ink drawings blur the boundaries between text and figure, the body and landscape, and they open up Gladman's investigations in Calamities and the Ravicka novels in very cool ways.
To celebrate, we are offering Prose Architectures at 25% off. Just head to the book page, add it to your cart, and enter "LINEEXTENDED" at the checkout. Our sale runs through the 4th of July.
Calamities, the collection of essays by Renee Gladman, has won the 2017 Firecracker Award for Nonfiction! It shared company with an amazing and diverse group of finalists, including Mary Ruefle's book of short prose, My Private Property. Read about them all over at the CLMP.
This recognition that comes on the eve of her first--and our first--art book, Prose Architectures, an extraordinary project that intersects with Calamities in myriad ways.
Congratulations to all the winners and finalists.
Last week Julian Talamantez Brolaski sat down with Michael Silverblatt on Bookworm to talk and read from across his books, including his most recent, Of Mongrelitude. It's a warm, thoughtful conversation, and the poems are amazing. Listen here!
What an amazing week! On Monday, Tyehimba Jess took home the 2017 Pulitizer Prize in Poetry!

These are two of the most prestigious literary awards—we are astonished and amazed! Our congratulations to Tyehimba and Hoa, and a cheers to everyone who made these books possible.
