17 September Launch: A Kind of Compass

We’re delighted to announce that our next title will be A Kind of Compass: Stories on Distance, edited by Belinda McKeon.

The contributors are: Sam Lipsyte, Maria Takolander, Gina Apostol, Sara Baume, Kevin Barry, Mark Doten, David Hayden, Elske Rahill, Ross Raisin, Porochista Khakpour, Francesca Marciano, Niven Govinden, Yoko Ogawa, E.C. Osondu, Kristín Ómarsdóttir, Suzanne Scanlon, and Éilís Ní Dhuibhne.

With stories from some of the best writers working today, A Kind of Compass brings us to places and situations we could never otherwise experience. Funny, unnerving, vivid and real, these stories evoke the nature of distance, exploring the many ways in which it is possible to feel far from home.
