A postscript on Emily Books

After posting my last article, Emily Gould (from Emily Books) wrote a piece in which she talks about the much broader spectrum of lit she’s discovered since starting the project:

“what happened instead as we read in search of new picks to share was an alternate literary history of the last half-century: a history in which the women and gay men with unconventional, scary, strange, funny, bold and transgressive ways of looking at the world had spoken and had been heard. There have been a lot of conversations lately online about the obvious and pervasive sexism in all our culture industries, including book publishing. …It’s important and good to name the problem, but it’s more important not to stop there.”

Well said, Emily! The whole interview – including a 20% discount password for their ebooks – can be found here:
