The Portland Mercury‘s Alison Hallett on Hawthorne Books

22 Jan 2014|

PORTLAND’S Hawthorne Books has been quietly exercising great taste for years now, publishing authors like Monica Drake, Tom Spanbauer, and Poe Ballantine. In addition to their oversized format and distinctive French flaps, Hawthorne’s books are characterized by strong, iconoclastic authorial voices, in both intensely personal memoirs and in novels that’d be unlikely to find a champion at safer, more conventional publishers.—Alison Hallett, The Portland Mercury
