The books:

RaisingGirlsInBohemia-Cover-200pA provocative collection, Raising Girls in Bohemia chronicles the life of an American father raising three perfectly bilingual, culturally bifurcated, Czech-American daughters. While tracing what fatherhood has taught him, Katrovas delves into a range of intricately related yet far-flung subjects including fine dining, sexual epithets, racism, poetry, and education. Katrovas unveils what it means to be American and to be a man, and what it means to be a father of daughters in the twilight of patriarchy

“Tough, direct, gritty, full of wonder . . . there is nothing meek about Mr. Katrovas.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF BOOKS

“Sometimes a person is in the right place at the right time to witness history, which is lucky. Sometimes that person is a writer of Richard Katrovas’ talent, which is even luckier . . . A clear-eyed, sure-handed, big-hearted book.” — BETH ANN FENNELLY, author of Great with Child

9781941110089_SwingState_Cover-FRONT-200pxSwing State unveils the generally overlooked decades-long economic downturn in the rural Northeast. With an unflinching eye, novelist Michael T. Fournier lays bare the dim dreams and raw existence of the lives of three residents of Armbrister, New Hampshire, who share the same goal: get out. Faced with grim prospects, the intersection of bullying and terrorism blurs, with disastrous consequences in this deftly-woven tale.

“Fournier is one of our best writers and Swing State is his finest book yet.” — MIKE FALOON, author of The Hanging Gardens of Split Rock

“With the DIY ethos of a zinester and the backing of a small press, Fournier takes his inspirations from musicians and writers on the fringe of society. A fellow rebel!” — LAURA ROBERTS, Blackheart Magazine

9780989512565-HelloDevilfish-RonDakron-200Hello Devilfish! is a first-fish account of how a giant Japanese movie monster stingray gleefully creams Tokyo into rubble. The stingray is soon pursued by Squidra, a love-struck giant squid. In an epic waterfront battle, she traps him in a human-growth hormone bath, transforming him into a puny human—a reverse metamorphosis. Refusing to accept his humanity, the stingray tears through Tokyo trying to find food, shelter, romance—and avoid the destructive rampage of his stalker squid love interest.

“A rapid-fire stomp through pop culture and Japanese monster movies.” — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“It is said that Frankenstein is the first myth of the anxiety of the Scientific Age. Godzilla is the anxiety of the Atomic Age. Hello Devilfish! is the anxiety of the Information Age.” — MATT BRIGGS, author of Virility Rituals of North American Teenage Boys
