An ode to a passionate literary figure and bookshop in Algiers, this book serves as a reminder of the importance of the printed word and the great lengths people have gone to throughout history to create, preserve, and share books under occupation.

This was my favorite read of 2020. It offers a level of honesty and friendship, a sense of time, and a glimpse at radical existence that is so resonant. It is also a celebration of snail mail, and I think it would be an excellent gift to recceive via USPS with some nice stamps on the package.

Published: Angel City Press - October 20th, 2020

When the Octavia E. Butler: Telling My Stories exhibit was up at the Huntington Library, we got a glimpse of Octavia the careful researcher, Octavia the shaper of reality, Octavia in intense conversation with herself on the page. I am very excited to get to know her better through this new collection, which draws on Lynell George's own personal experiences and time spent researching the 387 boxes of archived materials at the Huntington. This book also serves as an inspirational text for creative thinkers-- those of us working to adapt, organize, research, adn imagine the future.
