This is a limited edition hardcover. The jacket will look identical to the softcover except it will be on colored paper.
The Others is unlike anything we've ever published, or anything we've seen in a long time. It's a highly compelling, un-put-downable novel told in paced, beautifully written lyric. Think of Homer's Odyssey or A Thousand and One Nights, containing many fantastic tales told all by one frame narrator, so captivating that you forget the premise. It's a surprising and compulsively readable book.
Rohrer is highly regarded as a poet, having published 8 collections of poems, and been featured everyone from Poetry, Harper's, and The New York Times to Entertainment Weekly and Real Simple.. This will be a big crossover book since it will appeal to both contemporary poetry readers and anyone who enjoys a good novel. It can be regarded as one of the genre-bending poetry collections of the year and a great summer beach read.
For poets, this shows just how imaginative poetry can be. We expect that it will be picked up by professors particularly for undergraduate students, but also for graduate students investigating forms of long or epic poems.
