Spring releases kick off today with the release of the long-awaited next installment in Manna Francis’ Administration series, For Certain Values of Family. Book 7 contains the novel Family Values and two further short stories set in the near-future dystopia of New London.
On March 1st, we’ll be following that up with Lavinia Ludlow’s debut novel, alt.punk, part punk-rock tale, part coming-of-age-in-suburbia story, which explores the layers of mythmaking that underlie class and ideology in the twenty-first century.
Then, on April 1st, we’ll be taking a trip back to 1980s London with the Brooklyn-born protagonist of C.M. Harris’ Enter Oblivion, who finds himself thrust into the very heart of New Wave culture, unsure whether he will become a rock star, a rent boy, or a laughingstock.
Coming of age in the 1960s is next, with Bob Thurber’s Paperboy due to be released on May 1st, which tells the story of fourteen-year-old Jack Fisher trying to make ends meet in downtown Pawtucket.
Finally, on June 1st, we’ll return firmly to the present with Lynne Hinkey’s Marina Melee, a hilarious account of a spoiled oil tycoon trying his hand at running a marina in the Caribbean.
We hope you enjoy these great spring releases!
