Happy (post) Independents Day!


It’s the day after a holiday and you’re on the internet, chances are you’re after something good to read. Well, like any good indie, we want to make you happy. Here’s an excerpt from Christopher Boucher’s HOW TO KEEP YOUR VOLKSWAGEN ALIVE, released last summer by Melville House.

Modeled on the bestselling 1969 hippie handbook of the same title, this wildly inventive tale is both a stunning tour-de-force and a wise and charming consideration of the stuff of great fiction: death, love, loss, responsibility, and road trips. A perfect quick read for a holiday. Enjoy!

Now go outside and burn some hamburgers …

P.S. We’ll be back to our regular schedule tomorrow.
