How The Rumpus Book Club works: Every month you get a book in the mail that hasn’t been released yet. We read fiction, memoir, essay collections, and even graphic novels! We discuss the book all month while we read it. You’re invited to an exclusive moderated online discussion with the author at the end of the month which we’ll edit and run on The Rumpus as a feature article (like this).
Some books we’ve featured in the book club include An Untamed State by Roxane Gay, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby, Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, Heart Berries by Terese Mailhot, All You Can Ever Know by Nicole Chung, and Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls by T Kira Madden. Upcoming writers include Michele Filgate, Nicole Dennis-Benn, Elissa Washuta, Trisha Low, Ayse Papatya Bucak, Leigh Camacho Rourks, and more.
Subscribe by the 20th of the month to receive following month’s book and join in the chat with its author. For example, to receive our March book, please make sure to subscribe by February 20.
Please note that one-year subscriptions are non-refundable.
We do not offer international Book Club subscriptions at this time, but we hope to in the future.
