The Raconteur 'America' Launch Events

Parthian are pleased to announce that we are the new publisher of literary magazine The Raconteur. Join us this autumn for a number of events to celebrate the launch of the 'America' issue in the new paperback format.

'Full of insights and valuable perspectives on the literary world’. – Alain de Botton

The ‘America’ issue promises a transatlantic treasure trove of the freshest fiction and poetry from both sides of the pond, ruminations and reminiscences of the writing life from American writers working in Europe and European writers ‘over there’, travel pieces and reportage from across the United States, an eclectic mix of interviews and features as well as an all-but-definitive A-Z of American Letters.
Contents include:
Godfrey Hodgson on American politics
Allegra Goodman on the American novel
Jack Foley on the birth of the beats
New fiction from Tom Abbott, Russell Celyn Jones and Todd Zuniga
New poetry from Rhian Edwards, Salena Godden, Graham Isaac, lloyd robson, Tim Wells and Heathcote Williams
Essays by Tom Anderson, Catherine Fletcher, Rob Lewis, Jo Mazelis, Gary Raymond, Graham Tomlinson, Dan Tyte and Susie Wild plus reflections from Taylor Glenn, Yahia Lababidi, Joao Morais, David E. Oprava, Bobby Sanabria, Mimi Thebo and Tamar Yoseloff.
And a definitive A-Z of American literature
'The Raconteur in its new format promises to grow in both vitality and variety, creating a much needed showcase to present the best of our writing and ideas to the world.' – Jon Gower
