The Best Novel We’ve Ever Published

Today, Electric Literature joins the novel publishing business. We didn’t want to do it. God knows it’s a dirty, thankless business. But we read a manuscript so good that we knew if we didn’t publish it, we’d wind up on our deathbeds surrounded by those that love us, and all the good we’d done wouldn’t mean shit, because goddamn it we should have published that fucking novel by Sam Pink.

The novel is Rontel by Sam Pink. Joe Meno says, “Funny as hell, searingly honest, and urgently real, Sam Pink’s Rontel puts to shame most modern fiction.” And Tao Lin calls it “the funniest book I have ever read.”

Today only: We’ve released a special edition of Rontel for Valentine’s day that features the author’s private phone number. Text Sam Pink, and he’ll sext you back.

Also available on Nook and Kobo. The print edition is available from Lazy Fascist Press.
