THE ARTIFICIAL SILK GIRL

(from OTHER PRESS)

by Irmgard Keun

Keun masterfully tells the story of day to day life in 1930s Berlin through the voice of Doris a young, party-hard, bad decision making woman willing to do anything to make it. Follow her through crummy jobs, shitty apartments, faked orgasms, and bad hangovers with the occasional Nazi thrown in. Doris spews unfiltered truths that reveal much more than just the life she’s living. Filtered through her naivety she speaks to much larger ideas about feminism and what it meant to be successful as a woman.

We played host to a Small Press Night for local book people (and some that were in town for MLA) so that some amazing small presses could enchant us with their amazing books. It worked! Charmed.

The people (from top to bottom):
The dashing Nick During from NYRB CLASSICS
The darling Jeff Waxman, from OTHER PRESS.
The dynamic Patrick Thomas from MILKWEED EDITIONS
The dapper Declan Spring from NEW DIRECTION
The dauntless Jeremy M. Davies from DALKEY ARCHIVE PRESS
And The distinctive Chad Post from OPEN LETTER BOOKS
