Hi Scott,

I can’t seem to get the updated version to download on Kindle, despite the store saying I bought the book in 2016, my order from 2016 now saying I have V2, and the sample on the store page being that of the new edition. I also have the option to buy it again, which doesn’t seem right. (I will, however, buy it again directly from you if this can’t be resolved.) I’ve contacted Amazon and thought I’d let you know about the issue.

OK, the issue was resolved by customer service. I am now getting the correct version.

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.
