The Daily Beast Loves The Rumpus Book Club


And we love you back.

While I’m at it, a little update news. Our current book is Kathleen Alcott’s The Dangers of Proximal AlphabetsBookslut covered it here and said “It’s never simple, but if complicated is what produces a novel like this one, we should be grateful for the messy, the broken, and the quiet graces they birth, the camaraderie that can find us in even the most isolating of nightmares.”

We’re very excited to announce that our October book is Jami Attenberg’s The Middlesteins. You can join the book club today by going here.

And while the Daily Beast didn’t mention it, we also have a Poetry Book Club. This month’s book is Eva Saulitis’s Many Ways to Say it, and we’re excited to announce that our October book is Paul Lisicky’s Unbuilt Projects

You can join the Rumpus Poetry Book Club by going here too.
