Between a poetry/prose/vinyl collection, and the work of crowd-favorite lyrical poet Janaka Stucky called The Truth Is We Are Perfect, Third Man Books has a lot going for it.
Rough Trade Bookstore
Now, independent English bookstore Rough Trade is promoting Third Man Books as its publisher of the month, which includes taking the exclusive rights to selling the first two titles by Third Man Books for a short time.
Third Man Books is a new venture of Third Man Records, founded by Jack White of The White Stripes. Whether it’s music or books, the mantra is motion:
Where your turntable’s not dead.
Where your page still turns.
In celebration of the collaboration, Third Man Books will be heading over to London on May 29 to host an event featuring readings, performances, and special guest speakers with Rough Trade East.
The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
This week’s story is from The Governess and Other Stories by Stefan Zweig, published by Pushkin Press. An eclectic collection of four brilliant stories, including a Renaissance tragedy and an English whodunit. These four stories illustrate the wide range of Zweig’s subject matter dating from quite early in his career as a writer of fiction (“The Governess,” rooted in a world of strict Edwardian morality), to late (“Did He Do It?,” almost an English detective story set near Bath, where Zweig lived in exile).
“Stefan Zweig’s time of oblivion is over for good. . . . It’s good to have him back.”—Salman Rushdie, New York Times
