Small Press Spotlight: The Overlook Press

Article Type: 

As an indepedent bookstore, Interabang Books loves to support small publishers who put out unique and fascinating releases. The Overlook Press in New York doesn't shy away from the deep-cuts, the untold, and the beautifully-written.

The Overlook Press publishes books in diverse genres, seeking great stories and ideas "overlooked" by other publishers. What catches our eye about their releases is their fresh perspectives-- these are books and stories you won't find elsewhere, written by incredible authors with strong points-of-view. Sometimes The Overlook Press's books are funny, sometimes awe-inspiring, sometimes moving, but always new and different.

This month we're featuring The Overlook Press on a featured table here in the store. Check out some of the titles you can find on our featured table:

Legends of the Samurai Cover Image
ISBN: 9781590207307
Availability: Backordered
Published: Harry N. Abrams - March 6th, 2012

So much mythology surrounds the modern image of the Samurai that it's easy to forget how integral and ubiquitous this caste was to Japanese society, even after its abolition at the end of the 19th Century. Presented in Hiroaki Sato's wonderfully enjoyable translation, LEGENDS OF THE SAMURAI is a rare opportunity to actively experience history-- to access the Samurai mindset through their writings, codes, and mythos. This book is living, breathing history.

ISBN: 9781585679362
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Harry N. Abrams - August 28th, 2007

This might be the weirdest and funniest novel you read this year. RUMO combines the whimsical worldbuilding of Roald Dahl or J.R.R. Tolkein with the earnest satire of Christopher Moore. Moers's book features an expansive, silly story with illustrations and marginalia, offering adults an experience akin to the invention of a children's story. You have to flip through RUMO's pages to understand. Come take a look in the store!
