This book is a late addition to the catalog. It’s not exactly poetry, and it’s not essays or fiction, but it’s for real. It’s fun and famous and packed with a-ha moments.

How to Catch a Coyote
Christy Crutchfield
novel
Release date June 24, 2014

Book Details:
5 x 7.5″ paperback
200 pages
List price $14.95
ISBN 13: 978-0-9887503-8-8

“Christy Crutchfield writes like she’s been alive for centuries—and not just alive, but taking notes. This book is wise in a way I’d almost forgotten books can be, as well as vivid and real and solid and sad. I read it, I loved it, and I only hope that Crutchfield writes another one soon so I can read that, too.”
—Ben Loory

short stories
Release date September 16, 2014

Book Details:
5 x 7.5″ paperback
200 pages
List price $14.95

How are we transported? Why do we believe each other? What is our tendency towards legend? How do we immortalize one another? What is ritual to the avowed non-believer? How can we feel such heartbreak about someone who died before we were born? Will we ever understand each other? Is there grace in misunderstanding?
