Shout out to Freight

The kind folks at Freight Books are sending traffic in our direction and we like it.

I just read Freight's Ramshackle by Elizabeth Reeder (spoiler: it isn't poetry!) - a great and original read, having walked on the ice myself with suitable trepidation at isthmus-town Madison, Wisconsin at a duff-beer style freshman party, the description of place - the old house and lake - spoke to me; strong characterization; technical detail on locks and keys with beautiful thematic resonance; it also has a fine train section including timetable information for Chicago...

Next stop The Hairdresser of Harare by Tendai Huchu...

And did I mention Freight publish Gutter too?
