Pressgang

Our mission is to publish narrative lit: stories, essays, memoirs, novels. We like literary heft and helium. Seriousness of purpose, surprising execution, the well-wrought joke, the well-crafted sentence. The blurring of boundaries. Think Vonnegut meets Saunders meets Poe. Think Byron meets Bulgakov, Gogol, Nabokov. Think Kafka and Beckett. Think Lorrie Moore, think Laurie Anderson, think Lemony Snickett. Think Dorothy Parker mixed with Edward Gorey meets Steven Millhauser meets Dickens with a word limit.
