Jonathan Littell’s Amazon Single

Author of The Kindly Ones writes The Invisible Enemy, available at Amazon for $1.99.

In remote villages of the Congo, the children of more than 1,000 families have been taken by armed members of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and made to become slaves and “wives.” In The Invisible Enemy, Jonathan Littell–war correspondent and author of the novel The Kindly Ones–investigates the panic, disbelief, and powerlessness faced by the effected families. He journeys to jungle and savannah villages where the LRA hides, interviewing children who escaped, government officials who help the victims, and military officers who lead the anti-LRA operations. Haunted with images of terror, Littell’s history of the LRA’s atrocious campaign nevertheless offers powerful psychological portraits, richly described landscapes, strategic details of both sides’ operations.

Perhaps pair it with The Explosion of the Radiator Hose?

Vollmann Reporting from Japan’s Nuclear Disaster

Interesting to see that William T. Vollmann has published an Amazon single with byliner.com that consists of him reporting from the nuclear disaster following the earthquake in Japan. The very informative title of the piece is Into the Forbidden Zone: A Trip Through Hell and High Water in Post-Earthquake Japan and it costs $2.99 and clocks in at 61 “pages.”

It will be interesting to see how many more authors begin to publish pieces in this form. Obviously for an author like Vollmann this is ideal, as he specializes in both journalism and writing long articles. That would seem to be what works well in the Amazon Singles format.

THE SURRENDER

The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


LADY CHATTERLEY'S BROTHER

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


THE LATIN AMERICAN MIXTAPE

5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
