McSWEENEY’S BOOK RELEASE CLUB
WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
We’ll send you the next eight books we publish, as we publish them. We will do this for just $100, shipping included (if you live in the U.S.). If you do the math, the next four books alone would run you $86 (Mr. Gwyn retails for $22; More Curious $22; In Case of Emergency $24; Read Harder $18)—that’s $14 measly dollars shy of the total cost of a BRC subscription. Dollar-for-book, the Book Release Club is far and away the best deal we’ve ever put together, and very possibly the best subscription deal out there.
Coming up next: In Case of Emergency: What do you do when you can’t function? After rookie EMT Piper Gallagher responds to a call outside a Los Angeles shopping mall for a man who can only tell her, “I can’t function,” the question begins to haunt her. How will Piper continue to function despite the horror she sees working in South Central, and despite her own fractured past? And how will the woman Piper loves continue to function as she experiences the aftershocks of her time spent serving in Iraq? Piper’s experiences as a rookie break her down and open her up as her genuine urge to help patients confronts the daily realities of life in the back of an ambulance and a hospital’s hallways. This vivid and visceral debut is a rich study in trauma—in its causes and effects, in its methods and disguises, in its power and its pull.Listen to Courtney Moreno discuss the book on the Poets & Writers podcast.
