Announcing Famous Times by Thea Brown


We’re proud to announce that Famous Times by Thea Brown is forthcoming from Slope.

To quote Jennifer Chang, who blurbs Famous Times,

In Famous Times, Thea Brown trains her vertiginous wit and lyricism on all that we overlook and risk losing when we start believing too much in the chaos of our lamentable contemporary moment. Yes, this is a mournful book, but sardonic and weirdly resourceful, bounding imaginatively among the horizon’s blue dot, our burnt-toast insides, adult acne, and questionable sciences like linguistics and physics. “My everyday is too much as it is,” Brown admits, balancing nervously between fragility and ferocity, and it is this “too much” that Famous Times scrutinizes with both savage attention and weary distraction. I found it mesmerizing.
