Dear friends of Unnameable Books:

Don't tell anyone, but the editors of Time Out New York have appointed YOUR FAVORITE BOOKSTORE as one of NYC's 50 Essential Secrets. Unnameable Books also made the list. Page 40 of last week's issue features a large and excellent photograph of our secret back wall, in which you can see, too, if your eyes are keen, our secret collection of old issues of Botteghe Oscure (an important international literary journal of the 1940s and 50s). The caption reads, in part, "With a cluttered, top-shelf inventory that could keep you reading great tomes for the next decade, [Unnameable] is a definite
boon to Brooklyn's literati."

The text of the article can be found online at http://www.timeout.com/newyork/article/features/23933/44.html, but the
photograph looks much better on paper. Please find a copy of the magazine, cut out page 40, and wheatpaste it prominently on your front door, or on the side of any major architectural landmark.

There do exist, however, more and larger, more important secrets in the world.

The most immediate of these, concerning our ongoing Sunday afternoon readingseries, regards one SARAH LANG, who has written a book of poetry. The book is called THE WORK OF DAYS, is published by Coach House, and is just out new
now. Here's what Carole Maso says about the book: "With ferocity and tenderness, with and without hope these staggering poems astonish at every turn. One gets up from them changed." But don't trust Carole Maso: come see the poems for yourself, and hear them read aloud, by their very author, THIS SUNDAY at 5 PM, here at Unnameable Books. That's, like, tomorrow. November 11.

THE VERY NEXT SUNDAY -- to wit, the 18th of November -- Unnameable will host a release party for Issue 4 of the internet's premiere unpronouncable literary journal: EOAGH: A JOURNAL OF THE ARTS, edited by the inestimable Tim Peterson, whom we esteem greatly. Various writers will read from their work. This, too, will occur at 5 PM. Previous issues of EOAGH can be found at http://chax.org/eoagh/ , whereat Issue 4 will appear sometime before the release party...

More authors will appear on Sunday afternoons in December at 5 pm: notably, Shelley Jackson on Dec. 9 and the Harp & Altar special on Dec. 2: Lynn Crawford, Johannah Rodgers, and Corey Frost
