Madras Press is currently one of my absolute favorites: beautiful and unusual little books that collect new and established talent, with proceeds from each book going to the author’s favorite charity. This time around, for the second series, the books are:
The Moors by Ben Marcus
A Manual for Sons by Donald Barthelme
The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman
Three Stories by Ken Kalfus
You can’t find these titles on Amazon, but you can get more information on how to order here. You should do that. You should go there right now and order. Because these books are wonderful, and make great gifts. For a good cause.
On a slightly more selfish note, if you’ve appreciated what you’ve read on this blog this year—much of which has promoted other writers’ work—consider showing your appreciation the same way you would with any good busker.
