Seems wild to already be at April 5 2011, but here we are.
There is No Year is available widely, including online at several places found here.
Amazon has it for like less than $9, and there are the brick stores that are alive.
An immense honor to have blurbs from two of my favorite writers of all time:
“If there’s a more thoroughly brilliant and exciting new writer than Blake Butler, . . . well, there just isn’t. I’ve literally lost sleep imagining the fallout when There Is No Year drops and American fiction shifts its axis.”
— Dennis Cooper
"Blake Butler, mastermind and visionary, has sneaked up and drugged the American novel. What stumbles awake in the aftermath is feral and awesome in its power, a fairy tale of an ordinary family subjected to the strange, lonesome agony known as daily life. There is No Year is a merciless novel cleansed of joy, pumped full of fear and awe."
— Ben Marcus
Thanks again to all who've done so much for me and continue to do so much. I couldn't feel happier.
I hope you'll check out the book if you feel it.
