Half a Dozen New PM Press Books

Tags:

It’s always a good day when we get a new batch of books from PM Press. This lot includes a couple of books that spring from punk (The Spitboy Rule: Tales of a Xicana in a Female Punk Band and Going Underground: American Punk 1979–1989, Second Edition), mothering, and a folklorish exploration of “what it means to be a peacemaker in the midst of violence” — A Wolf at the Gate, which received a starred review from Kirkus and looks very tempting:

“Van Steenwyk writes in sharp, muscular prose highly suitable for the fabulistic subject matter, deftly navigating both the darker and lighter segments of the story. The true standouts of the book, however, are the illustrations by Joel Hedstrom . . . full-page illustrations in brilliant colors that feel simultaneously ancient and stylishly contemporary. The result is a book out of time: a coupling of narrative and illustration that should stoke the imagination of any young modern reader. A visually stunning work addressing themes of peace, generosity, and forgiveness.”
