Poetry. Fiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. African & African American Studies. Latino/Latina Studies. Jewish Studies. Art. In this, its premiere publication, Acre Books presents an array of established writers and talented newcomers to bring you...babies. These swaddled sacks of boy and girl are not your average infants, however. They are seething teethers, diapered devils, brawling bundles, newborns gone nuclear. Not all are human. Not all are small. Not all are even young. What they are, in a word, is angry. The special promotional volume was put together specifically for Acre Books by head editor Nicola Mason, whose aim is to show the kind and caliber of work Acre is interested in acquiring. All of the pieces in A VERY ANGRY BABY are previously unpublished, save one (which appeared in Wales). Contributors include: Ricardo Almonte, Julianna Baggott, Stephen Baily, Aaron Bauer, Beverly Burch, Allison Campbell, Brock Clarke, Chelsea Dingman, Allen Forrest, Rebecca Hazelton, Tania Hershman, Andrew Hudgins, Kiprop Kimutai, Margaret Luongo, John William McConnell, Craig McDaniel, Erin McGraw, Jamie Quatro, Josh Russell, Changming Yuan, Nicola Mason.
Before establishing Acre Books in 2017, Nicola Mason worked at McGraw-Hill, The Southern Review, Louisiana State University Press, and started Acre's parent publication, The Cincinnati Review, in 2003.Author City: CINCINNATI, OH USA
