Announcing Two New Titles from ASP
WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE the publication of two new titles coming your way in Spring 2022!
Dave Housley’s brilliant, darkly comic novel The Other Ones will be released January 18, 2022. Saida Agostini’s first full-length poetry collection, the stunning let the dead in, launches on March 26, 2022. Both are available for preorder now wherever books are sold.
About the books:
What would you do if a group of your fellow office workers won the lottery? The Other Ones tracks the actions and reactions of multiple characters in the wake of this cataclysmic event, tracing the effect it has on them, for good and bad, over the following year. Some dig in, some quit, some go more than a little crazy. One commits suicide by jumping off the roof of the office, then returns as a ghost to haunt the winners. Funny, tragic, and real, The Other Ones shines a light on our contemporary relationships to money, work, and one another.
Saida Agostini’s first full-length poetry collection, let the dead in, is an exploration of the mythologies that seek to subjugate Black bodies, and the counter-stories that reject such subjugation. Audacious, sensual, and grieving, this work explores how Black women harness the fantastic to craft their own road to freedom. A journey across Guyana, London, and the United States, it is a meditation on black womanhood, queerness, the legacy of colonization, and pleasure. These poems craft a creation story fat with love, queerness, mermaids, and blackness.
