Atticus Books is a fiery multimedia press based in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C.
We specialize in genre-busting literary fiction—i.e., titles that fall between the cracks of genre fiction and compelling narratives that feature memorable main characters. We publish books and regularly post original short stories, poems, literary essays and creative non-fiction on our website.
Our purpose on earth is to help lead independent publishing into a new era of book and content creation (not merely print production and extinction). Moreover, we intend to follow in the spirit and tradition of offbeat literary dynamos such as City Lights, New Directions, Grove, and Black Sparrow Press.
A phenomenal allegory of the dangers of a too-industrialized life. This book will make you realize what you've been missing and what's in store for us if we don't pay attention. Beautifully told, think Thoreau meets Murakami and you'll get the idea of the book. Brilliant work.
Stunning, stunning prose. You read it and wonder where Tohline has been hiding all this time. There is great mystery to this book, a page turner in the true sense of the term, but with all the aims and punches of great art. Memorizing, this is an absolute wonder of a book.
Set in 1920s and 1930s Germany, Fauth's novel looks at the costs artists pursue to achieve their vision. He questions our ideas of identity, family and history to took at a country in transition, the horrors to come and today's world. Deft socio-political commentary in this post 9-11 world. Brilliant, brilliant work.
Sequel to the superb Nazareth, North Dakatoa, Zurhellen once again proves what a force he is in modern fiction. He tackles some of our great myths with a sharp satirical eye, great prose and wonderful characters. To be read more than once.
