A Fine Excess: Contemporary Literature at Play

by

A Fine Excess: Contemporary Literature at Play Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of poetry, fiction, and essay where language isn’t strictly functional but comes at the world in its most intense states—in reverie, in revelry, in fine excess; writers who must have, as Paul West once termed it, the world written up. These are minds unavoidably alive on the page. And there they move freely, in particular musical fashion, often making unlikely connections, sometimes jutting their sentences into odd and disproportionate rhythms, creating a vivid, sensory whole.

Marketing plans:

o Advertisements in writer’s magazines

o Large brochure and postcard mailings

A Fine Excess is the second title to be included in Sarabande’s new series, The Writer’s Studio, which features books that challenge, stimulate, and support the writer of poetry and short fiction.

Kirby Gann is the Managing Editor at Sarabande Books. His fiction has appeared in Witness, American Writing, The Crescent Review, and many other journals. He also has a Special Mention in The Pushcart Prize. Kristin Herbert is the former Marketing Director of Sarabande Books. She now lives in San Francisco. She has won an Academy of American Poets Prize, grants from the Kentucky Arts Council and Kentucky Foundation for Women.
