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).
Books we’ve featured include An Untamed State by Roxane Gay, Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, Heart Berries by Terese Mailhot, All You Can Ever Know by Nicole Chung, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls by T Kira Madden, and Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn. Upcoming writers include Ayşe Papatya Bucak, Jeannie Vanasco, Leigh Camacho Rourks, Paul Lisicky, Samantha Irby, Tracy O’Neill, and more!
Please subscribe by the 15th 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 15.
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.
