Eye-Opening New Novel

When Natalie Ryder signs up to participate in a confidential study of female sexuality, it seems like a dream come true—generous financial compensation, a luxurious private house outside of Toronto, and a personal driver. The only catch: she must keep the study secret from her best friend Rachel. Then she meets Michael and Suzanne and things become more complicated… and dangerous.

“…an erotic thriller of voyeurism, repression, domination, and submission written in a fast-paced prose distinct for its minute evocations of masturbatory thrills. Singular in its dialectic between looking and being looked at, and in its urgency about sexual release, the novel retains a rare claustrophobia of sexual obsession, a flashback to Kafka if he had written erotica.”  —Eurydice

“THE OBSERVATORY is a voyeuristic telling of the burgeoning discovery of a woman’s sexual desires, yet in a quiet, sensually innocent way. The story is at once sexy and sultry, yet a journey of self-revelation. The reader is repeatedly aroused, craving and desiring Natalie, our beautiful protagonist, but also caring for her. She is at once delicate, yet has a steely core reserved for only the mightiest of heroines.”  —Vera Jones

LET THERE BE LAUGHTER!

Just in time for the holidays, THE ALPHONSE ALLAIS READER has arrived!

Drawn from Black Scat’s eight editions of the master French absurdist, this compendium is a sublime introduction to the wordplay and black humor that shocked and dazzled Bohemian Paris in the raucous “Banquet Years.” The READER includes the celebrated pataphysical text “A Thoroughly Parisian Drama”—a favorite of both André Breton and the Oulipians—as well as stories, plays, an excerpt from his only novel, and the classic exploits of Captain Cap and Francisque Sarcey. The translator, Doug Skinner, has added copious notes and an illuminating introduction.

Step into the funhouse! Laughs and surprises await!

LE CHAT NOIR was one of the liveliest avant-garde papers in 19th century Paris. Published by the legendary cabaret, it delivered a weekly blast of anarchism, pranks, Decadent poetry, and black humor by such luminaries as Alphonse Allais, Charles Cros, and Paul Verlaine. It was also famous for its cartoons. Here are 101 of them: the poetic fantasies of Adolphe Willette, the slapstick animals of Théophile Steinlen, the military sketches of Caran d’Ache, the bawdy gags of Döes and Fernand Fau, and much more. With an introduction, translations, and notes by Doug Skinner.
