NIRVANA IS HERE by Aaron Hamburger
Three Rooms Press is so excited about our forthcoming Spring books that we’re giving away copies of not just one, but TWO brilliant new works of LGBTQ+ fiction.
- NIRVANA IS HERE by Aaron Hamburger (Adult Fiction, coming May 14, 2019)
- EVERYTHING GROWS by Aimee Herman (Young Adult Fiction, age 16+, coming May 7, 2019)
NIRVANA IS HERE (ISBN: 978-1-94110-77-5; Trade Paper; 390 pages; May 14, 2019; $16.00), the third book of fiction by award-winning author Aaron Hamburger, explores issues of identity, race, sex, and family with both poignancy and unexpected humor. For Ari Silverman, the past has never really passed. After 20 years, the trauma from a childhood assault resurfaces as he grapples with the fate of his ex-husband, a colleague accused of sexually harassing a student. To gain perspective, Ari arranges to reconnect with his high school crush, Justin Jackson, a bold step which forces him to reflect on their relationship in the segregated suburbs of Detroit during the 1990s and the secrets they still share. NIRVANA IS HERE is filled with rich, real characters reminiscent of the sensuality and haunting nostalgia of André Aciman’s Call Me by Your Name blended with the raw emotion of Kurt Cobain’s lyrics.
EVERYTHING GROWS (ISBN: 978-1-94110-68-3; Trade Paper; 240 pages; May 7, 2019; $15.00), by first-time novelist Aimee Herman, reveals the value of finding or creating community while exploring the importance of forgiveness, acceptance, and learning how to survive on your own terms. Fifteen-year-old Eleanor Fromme just chopped off all of her hair. How else should she cope after hearing that her bully, James, has taken his own life? When Eleanor’s English teacher suggests students write a letter to a person who would never read it to get their feelings out, Eleanor chooses James. With each letter she writes, Eleanor discovers more about herself, even while trying to make sense of his death. And, with the help of a unique cast of characters, Eleanor not only learns what it means to be inside a body that does not quite match what she feels on the inside, but also comes to terms with her own mother’s mental illness.
