The Composites book is now available
“Incredible…IQ84 meets CSI.” The Atlantic
“Brilliant, and refreshingly unsentimental.” The Guardian
The Composites includes 66 pages of character images from throughout literary history, full-color design, as well as excerpts from: Herman Melville, Charlotte and Emily Brontë, Victor Hugo, Bram Stoker, Gustave Flaubert, J.-K Huysmans, and Thomas Mann.
All royalties from this book will be donated to Joyland Magazine. Since 2008 Joyland—funded only by donations and grants—has had a mandate to support and publish emerging authors from across North America and around the world.
This entire project has been a collaboration with Tumblr users and that collaboration has changed everything about myself as a writer and as a reader. For that, and making this project work, thank you. (And please keep sending the suggestions. The Composites will return next week after a brief vacation.)
