Snuggly Books – what a great name for a publisher! We’ve received two titles from Snuggly Books – a new publisher to us – and these are now listed on our website.
In Jottings from a Far Away Place Brendan Connell combines the timeless, mannered assurance of the Eastern discursive essay with the experimentation of the Western avant-garde. A book that is like a collection of bulletins from the world of dreams.
In Blue on Blue by Quentin S Crisp (please note this is NOT Quentin Crisp of The Naked Civil Servant Fame) in an artificially engineered loop of parallel time called the Alternative States of the American Fifties, Victor Winton, a talented but unfulfilled cartoonist, struggles with the contradictory forces held in precarious stasis by the loop.
You may wonder why we take pains to point out that this is NOT The Naked Civil Servant (for those of us old enought to remember of course!) – it’s because in the past we were offering for sale a SIGNED book by Quentin S Crisp and received a stinging email asking us how we could offer a SIGNED book for sale from someone who was dead before the title was published! We politely explained that this was a different author…. and that Quentin S Crisp would be rather upset to find out that he was dead… we never did receive an apology from the irate emailer!
Check out these lovely new books on our website.
