Announcement Blurb LBB-fixed

The cornerstone of the imprint is the Little Bound Books Essay Series. Personal. Poignant. Powerful, this series is tiny in appearance at 4 x 6 in size and only 8000 – 9000 words in length; however, don’t be deceived by the small stature. The content for each personal essay in this series packs a punch to the heart (in the best sense). Think: Emerson’s On Nature or Self-Reliance; Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience, Barry Lopez’s Sliver of Sky, Annie Dillard’s Total Eclipse or James Baldwin’s Notes of a Native Son—it is this honesty, grit, and intelligence to which we aspire. Any books within the Little Bound Books Essay Series can easily be finished in a sitting. They are digestible yet impactful and will be offered to our readers at the affordable price of $12.00 per book.

To Lose the Madness

Field Notes on Trauma, Loss and Radical Authenticity
by L.M. Browning

To Lose the Madness is an essay built from the bones of the earth. Browning offers a stripped down, belly-to-the-ground, howling manifesto to authenticity, the truth that resides beneath layers of flesh and soil. It is a roadmap of hard-won scars and suffering, the kind of suffering that carves a life like glaciers carve landscapes. Where it has been, a riverbed of beauty and self-knowledge has been left.”

–Jason Kirkey, award-winning author of The Salmon in the Spring

“The Comet’s Tale is the fascinating exploration of how memory, or its absence, fits between body and spirit. Amy Nawrocki takes us on a journey through piecing together the fragments that make up one period of her life and in doing so opens the door to reflection on what makes a memory, inviting us to ponder the uncertainties and questions that come together to make up a life: why we remember some things, forget others, and how our own story of memory impacts those with whom we share this life. Her story is a reminder that even when we try really hard to make sense of what happens, so much of life remains a mystery. Prepare to ride an unsettling yet beautiful current with the author, moving on a riptide of forgetting and confusion, down into the murky depths of nothingness, to suddenly emerge on the other side of awareness with a gasp, ready to fill the next blank page with whatever comes next.”

–Heidi Barr, author of Woodland Manitou: To Be on Earth
