    By Jennifer Calkins.

    It's California, 1983. A woman pulls an IV out of her arm, walks out of the hospital, and starts driving north. Fugitive Assemblage is lyric noir rendered through ghostly images and voices conjured out of the trauma of family, of place, of love.

    MAKE A BOOK BANK DEPOSIT

    When you pledge for copies of 2020 Cohort Books to be deposited in our "Book Bank," we make them available through our website for free to folks who can't afford to buy them.

    • Multiply the cost of a book (either $24 or $28) by the number of copies you want to deposit in the Book Bank.
    • Minimum Book Bank deposit is 10 books.
    • It does not have to be all the same book.
    • Just do the math and make your pledge. (Tip: 5 of each = $416.)
    • At the end of the campaign, we’ll follow up to make sure your pledge is allocated to the titles you want deposited in the Book Bank, or you can let us choose for you.

    Just so you have it handy, here are the prices for individual titles:
    • Fugitive Assemblage, $24
    • There Must Be Happy Endings, $24
    • The High Alive, $28
    • The Illuminated Space, $28

    * No shipping since these books are kept safe in our warehouse until a withdrawal is made by a Book Bank visitor, then we cover shipping within the U.S.

    Includes:
    • A personal thank you for helping us enact our values.
