Curbside Splendor to Publish Anthology of Prose & Comics

In December local independent publisher Curbside Splendor will release The Way We Sleep (edited by C. James and Jessa Bye), a collection of stories, comics and interviews centering on sleep and beds. And because they're small and independent, Curbside relies on pre-orders, which can be placed here. The book will cost $20 retail, but pre-orders are $14.99 with free shipping within the U.S.

The 10X10, 240-page glossy will include contributions from authors, graphic artists and comedians like Etgar Keret, Maria Bamford, Billy Lombardo and Michael Showalter.

Says Joe Meno, local author of Office Girl, in the news release, "The Way We Sleep represents the very best of what a book can do that no other narrative medium can touch; it's part anthology, part art-book, part interview, part graphic novel, part confessional, part essay, part sociological study. The subject matter here ranges from sex to family to coming-of-age, all rendered with a delightful wit, brevity, and charm."
