How The Rumpus Book Club works: Every month you get a book in the mail that hasn’t been released yet. Usually it will be fiction, but it might be memoir, or essays, or a graphic novel. We discuss the book all month while we read it. You’re invited to a 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 one).
We’re going to try to only read good books. We’ll fail sometimes. The books will often be hardcover, but not always. Occasionally they’ll be paperback originals. Some books we’ve featured in the book club include The Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, An Untamed State by Roxane Gay, Insurrections by Rion Amilcar Scott, Abandon Me by Melissa Febos, Marlena by Julie Buntin, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby, and New People by Danzy Senna. Upcoming writers include Carmen Maria Machado, Jon McGregor, Kate Braverman, Katia D. Ulysse, Melissa Broder, and more.
