A 6-month subscription to The Rumpus Book Club. What does that mean? It means that once a month for six months, the lucky recipient of this gift will get a brand new novel or short story collection or memoir direct to their mailbox. These are books that haven’t been released for sale yet, so they’ll be getting books before anyone else has seen them. Plus, they’ll have a vibrant, engaged community to discuss the books with, and a chance to meet, in a virtual sense, the author of each book during a one hour online chat.
Some books we’ve featured in the book club include 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, Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, and Heart Berries by Terese Mailhot. Upcoming writers include Nicole Chung, Idra Novey, Tom Barbash, Esmé Weijun Wang, and more.
And we want you to give this to your book-loving friends. Or treat yourself. After all, who deserves this gift more than you?
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 6-month subscriptions are non-refundable.
We do not offer international Book Club subscriptions at this time, but we hope to in the future.
