“Hawthorne Books. I can’t be enthusiastic enough about Hawthorne Books, and I’m not the only one; Chuck Palahniuk has written introductions for two of their books, Dora: a Headcase by Lidia Yuknavitch and Clown Girl by Monica Drake. Publisher Rhonda Hughes has a sharp eye for talent and an equally-talented editing staff that helps each book blossom. She doesn’t shy away from difficult stories, either; my favorite title so far has been The End of Eve by Ariel Gore, a memoir that chronicles the death of Ariel’s difficult (and sometimes scary) mother to cancer, and how the process changes everything in her life.”
