WELCOME TO ALAN SQUIRE PUBLISHING.
A small press with big ideas.
Grace Cavalieri’s Other Voices, Other Lives is an important and necessary collection.
– Linda Pastan, Insomia
Elizabeth Hazen’s dazzling first collection, Chaos Theories, seamlessly merges science with lyricism.
– Charlotte Pence, The Kenyon Review
Voltaire. Nietzsche. Kerouac. Peabody. Alan Squire Publishing did it right. The Peabody Reader is a top-notch production.
–– Nathan Leslie, The Pedestal Magazine
In Roughnecks, Patterson paints an unforgettable picture of characters wrestling with their own gruff but complicated souls.
– James Mathews, Last Known Position
The Last Girl by Rose Solari casts the spell of a held piano note on a dark key.
– Jim Daniels, Rowing Inland
Billy Christmas is a book destined to be battered, much thumbed, read and read again until its pages come loose. Pritchard is here to stay.
— James Clark, former Sunday Times journalist
A Secret Woman is sneaky serious in a way I particularly like. A very promising fiction debut.
– Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize winner
Like a good absinthe, That Paris Year surrounds the reader in a cloud of voluptuous recollection.
– Linda Watanabe McFerrin, Dead Love
Bermuda Shorts is about life — the whimsy of it, the losses that come with it. It’s a vision that deserves to be shared.
– Greg Wyshynski, ESPN.com
It is our belief at ASP that you should be able to lend a good book to a friend, who could lend it to another friend, and, should it ever be returned, you should bloody well be able to read it yet again.
–James J. Patterson, co-founder of ASP
A little about us...
