The Blue Plateau

Published : Thursday, May 29, 2008

Milkweed Editions, the stylish US independent literary press, has signed my book The Blue Plateau. They’ll publish it in the US and Canada in the northern fall (October or so) of 2009.

I’m delighted to have the book with Milkweed—publisher of many poets, essayists and nature writers I admire—and I’m relieved, after so many years at work on the book, to know that it will be coming into the world.

I’m in talks with three or four Australian presses about the book’s Australian release. In all likelihood, whoever signs it here won’t get it out much before its US release late next year—possibly it will appear at the same time. But I hope to have some news on this front very soon.
