Dear dear friends of Unnameable Books,

You may have noticed some recent news coverage of this store, under a different name. If so, then you've probably been reading the New York Sun, or the Christian Science Monitor, or the Brooklyn Record or New York Magazine's gossip blog, or perhaps some other blogs where there have been high levels of chatter. Remain alert. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Keen google use will reveal the following:

The Sun
The Record
The Monitor
The Intelligencer
The Compton
The King
The Elsewhere
The Tube
The Macondo

In other news: Spring is here (again), and the birds will sing. Soon, soon.

NEXT FRIDAY NIGHT, for example, THE CANARY himself, that caged wonder, containing new poems by Ashbery, Myles, Toufic, Lee etc., will send a representative: Mr. JOSHUA EDWARDS, Ed. He will be reading his own work.

Simultaneously: Mr. FRED SCHMALZ, editor of THE SWERVE, whose new issue arrives anon, will display his own clinamen in the back of the store.

And on the very same night: MATTHEW ROHRER, poet, will read from his new book RISE UP, newly out from Wave Books.

All this is just to say that:
