Nostalgia

We're happy to announce the acquisition of Nostalgia, a novel by Hope Jennings. Here's the description:

Nostalgia is the definitive biography of Mina Byrne, obscure modernist avant-garde poet, painter, lamp-shade maker, and never-before-suspected muse of infamous Russian-American novelist, Vasili Novikov, and his son, Andrew Brennan, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright. Over ten years in the making, the novel draws from unpublished manuscripts, letters, and poems, reconstructing hypothetical paintings and lost photographs, reinventing forgotten eras, crisscrossing continents, and following its own laws of space and time. Jennings' groundbreaking portrait of an unknown and possibly plagiarized life presents a metafictional map of literary obsession, sexual betrayal, and monstrous megalomania. Traversing the landscape of a derelict past, we encounter schizophrenic sons, repressed philosophers, pugilist film stars, vampiric fathers, spectral butterflies, eccentric aunts, flamboyant flaneurs, reclusive mothers, bawdy vaudevillians, tittering dilettantes, absurd futurists, and one of the most unromantic and anti-nostalgic heroines imaginable.

Nostalgia is slated for publication early in 2015.

  1. I am extremly excited for H.Jennings book NOSTALGIA to be publish. I have read many other works by this author: H.Jennings is brillant in everyway: she is an untapped well. My only criticism is that the book is not being publish sooner then 2015. I can honestly say that I am anxiously waiting for NOSTALGIA TO BECOME AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC.
