New novel from Auslander & Fox: Walt

Auslander & Fox, Litwin Books’ imprint for general readers (i.e. not academic titles), has just published its first novel: Walt, by Ian Stoba. Walt is a wildly fun read that is over too quickly, and features a simple lobster fisherman from Tristan de Cunha, who hears unfamiliar music in his head that leads him to set out to sea in a rowboat, on a journey that leads him to San Francisco, where his adventures become truly strange.

Obviously, this is not a book about library and information science, but I am promoting it here because it is our publication, and what they said about Jack being a dull boy.

I hope some of our readers will pick up this book and enjoy it…
