Louise Marburg's debut book of fiction has received a rave review in the San Francisco Chronicle. Reviewer Joan Frank says of The Truth About Me: Stories "Delivered in strong, clean, biting prose, each story feels so uncannily right that the tonal hypnosis starts at once." We couldn't agree more with Frank! Read the review here and buy the book here. We are happy to work with book clubs and course adopters.
We're also appreciative of Frank's words of praise for the role of small publishers and of WTAW Press. "Let us now praise small literary presses: that growing band of sane, brave curators in an otherwise frantic literary landscape. Shepherding into daylight a selection of excellent new works (that may have been rebuffed or ignored by larger houses), these pioneer publishers do hero duty. The Bay Area’s WTAW Press (emerging from the monthly Sausalito reading series Why There Are Words) is a fine exemplar. Offering Louise Marburg’s debut story collection “The Truth About Me” as one of two inaugural titles, WTAW Press has, to my thinking, cracked it out of the park."
