Harbors Pre-Orders Are Now Available

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.”

We've featured an essay from Donald in the past and an interview. You can also read excerpts of the book at: The RumpusVol. 1 BrooklynSlag Glass CityNumero CinqNorth American Review.
