Today Is No Year, There is No Year

5 Apr

A little bit ago, Tyler vouched this month’s issue of The Collagist, which sports an excerpt of There Is No Year, a novel by Blake Butler.

I’m going to go ahead and break ranks for a minute here to go ahead and tell you that you need to buy this book. It’s releasing on Harper Perrenial, which I know goes against the mission of Vouched to promote since it’s a big house, but I’m going to promote it anyway because if ever there was a champion for the possibility of small presses, it was Blake. I won’t go so far as to stock it on the table, though I’d love to, but a blog post I can do, and gladly.

And also, I’m just excited to see a big house paying attention to a book like this, a book that grew out of the work Blake has already released on small presses like featherproof and Calamari, and I think that deserves a mention.

So, get this book. Also available for Kindle.

If you still need convincing, read the above linked excerpt. I’m convinced that will convince you.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Superb work!
