We are pretty excited to reach this point—Donald Quist's book of essays, Harbors, headed to the printer this week and is now available for pre-ordering. If you order now, you'll get free shipping, a postcard from the author, and a copy of the e-book later in the fall. Books will arrive the week of 9/22/16.
Harbors is a collection of new and previously published essays. Here is a brief description:
“Suspended between continents and cultures, Donald Quist charts the forceful undercurrents of an American identity. Through these essays Quist explores feelings of oppression and alienation as he wrestles with a single act of violence in a Washington D.C. suburb, racial tensions in a rural South Carolina town, and the welcome anonymity of crowded Bangkok streets. These personal narratives are rich with Quist’s experience growing up as a person of color caught between parents, socioeconomic classes, and the countries he calls home.”
