John Hanning book release at BGSQD

We are thrilled to announce the release of John Hanning's Unfortunate Male at Bureau of General Services—Queer Division on December 9th at 7pm EST.  An artist edition of 100 of Unfortunate Male will be available at the event, and a "plain edition" will be available on our website and in bookstores soon. 

Jackson Davidow, Camilo Godoy, Ted Kerr, Kris Nuzzi, Esther McGowan, Lucas Michael, and Frederic Sinclair will be joining John Hanning in reading passages from Unfortunate Male—telling the strange tension between the incomprehensibility of medical records and the crispness of Hanning's articulation of memory. 

John Hanning is a collage and digital artist born in Arkansas. His work has been exhibited in numerous group exhibitions including Queer WAH, WAH Center, Brooklyn, The Queer Feeling of Tomorrow, Art Gallery Guelph, Canada; Powerful Babies: Keith Haring's Impact on Artists Today, Spriritmuseum, Sweden; Color Dot Connect, Mixed Greens, New York; and in alternative spaces throughout New York City. Hanning is also the creator of Cosmo, his stick-figure-alter-ego and virtual avatar and the author of Unfortunate Male, his first book. He lives and works in Brooklyn.

Shelley Marlow Reading

Shelley Marlow, author of Two Augusts In A Row In A Row, will be reading at Almost Corner Bookshop in Rome, Italy on November 5th. 

The seventh title in Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers series, Two Augusts In A Row In A Row is a love letter between generations of queer people. Set in New York City in 2001, we follow Phillip—a gender subversive drag king in search of grace and magic—through rich, sad, humorous language that is singularly Shelley Marlow's

"Two Augusts In A Row In A Row is a novel about gender, love, grief and magic. It's also about the life ingredients that make up a day: the common hum of work, strolls to the corner store for food, the way time collapses while stroking a cat's fur or watching her sleep. It's sometimes confounding, but that's as it should be in a story about illusions." —Heather Seggel, Lambda Literary

"At times the book reads almost like a historical novel, for attitudes toward what Marlow calls "gender diaspora" have changed so remarkably since 9/11, and Phil and his friends seem impossibly young, sweet and energized, and their world dazzlingly multicultural and multiracial. It's a utopian book, even in the middle of dread climes and dire events, and it's a book in which "magick" works in oracular turns that regularly trump old-fashioned realism and psychology." —Kevin Killian, Bomb Magazine
