A recent addition to Publication Studio's The Fellow Traveler's 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.
“A new entry in Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers Series is always cause for delight. The series, devoted to works of sexual and political adventure that interdict the demands of the market, is perfect for Shelley Marlow and her beautiful, picaresque, Two Augusts in a Row in a Row.” - Kevin Killian
Shelley Marlow is an artist and writer living in NYC. Marlow's novel Two Augusts In a Row In a Row is published as part of the Fellow Traveler Series, Publication Studio, (2015).

Marlow's writing and visual art is found in several publications including LTTR(Lesbians To The Rescue), alLuPiNiT, Drunken Boat, saint-lucy.com, and The Literary Review. Marlow's essay, Notes in Kyzyl, published in the St. Petersburg Review, describes traveling to Siberia to meet shamans. Marlow has most recently exhibited paintings at Artmarket Provincetown and Valentine Gallery, NY. Marlow wrote the lyrics to the musical, UnKnot Turandot, performed at La Mama Theater, NY and presented an interactive project, International Witch Stories in the Italian Pavilion for the 48th Venice Biennial.
Brooke Palmieri studied English and History for her undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania, but it was working at the Department of Rare Books and Manuscripts during that time that really shaped her interest in the history of the book. After completing her Masters in Early Modern English Literature at Oxford in 2010, she entered the antiquarian book trade with a focus on cataloguing and selling early printed books at Sokol Books Ltd. Since 2013, she has been working on her PhD with CELL (Centre for Editing Lives and Letters), London. Her research and teaching is dedicated to unearthing the radical potential of print and manuscript cultures.
