On the shelves!
My publisher, Zed Books, is relatively high-profile and generally well respected for what they do — alternative or radical books for a fringe, generally academical, audience who wants the deep story (or a different story) of what’s going on in the world. Their global distribution is decent — the University of Chicago Press distributes them in the USA — but these are not really the types of books that you’re going to find on the shelves of everyday bookstores.
But every once in a while I get a note from a friend of acquaintance saying, “Hey, I say your book in ___ bookstore in ___.” I say thanks and then feel cool for a moment.
“😊 I found your book in a bookstore in Singapore.”
It was at BooksActually at Tiong Bahru.
I’m taking it that this place is pretty cool. It would have to be, right?
