Feeling joy, excitement, gratefulness. Proofs finalized. My novel, Never Mind the Beasts, over 10 years in the making, coming out this month from Dostoyevsky Wannabe. The cover. A 1 dollar high roller Vegas chip, sent to the press by Jennifer Hodgson (She is the person responsible for re-publishing Ann Quin’s works with And Other Stories Press). She went to Las Vegas around a year ago on the trail of Quin’s time there and picked it up. My novel, a surrealist autofiction, begins in my hometown of Portadown during The Troubles, and immigrates to Las Vegas and beyond!
