While some of us were in New York recently, we carried Luc Sante's Kill All Your Darlings around with us. The book features a number of essays about New York, and was recommended to us by...ourselves. Okay, the first person plural breaks down in certain constructions. Just look the other way when that happens. But nevertheless, Sante's book was our reading material while traveling, and a review of the book will appear on PDX Writer Daily soon.
But our point is: When, out of idle curiosity, we looked to see who had published Sante's essays, we were surprised and delighted to discover that the publisher was right here in Portland. It's Verse Chorus Press, and their full catalog of titles is right here.
