Dorothy in Chicago

We had a wonderful reading at Corbett vs. Dempsey in Wicker Park last weekend. Check out some photos on our Facebook page. Also last week, Dorothy was featured in the new issue of Time Out Chicago: "'Both books are inventive but in totally different ways,' says Dorothy editor Danielle Dutton. 'The only thing I’m really looking for is something that takes risks and is really fantastic.'" Read the full article online . . .

Dorothy at The Paris Review!

"I wanted to create a space where women felt encouraged to submit their work. Working at Dalkey, I saw that the number of submissions were overwhelmingly from men. Right around this time, too, I was talking about a book with a man who said to me, “I really liked it because five pages in I didn’t know it was written by a woman. I couldn’t tell a woman had written it.” And I thought, Are you kidding me? Are we still talking about this nearly a hundred years after A Room of One’s Own?"

Two at The Kenyon Review

"Ah, Ravicka. Where the bookstores are all independent, language swoops through the body, and buildings disintegrate. A city-state in flux and crisis. Belgians know about it. Citizens are disappearing. There’s still good coffee, though it’s the end of the world."

Read all of Elaine Bleakney's fantastic review of both Event Factory and The Ravickians, online, in The Kenyon Review.

Also check out this interview with Dorothy, a publishing project (thanks, Hilary Plum!).

Bookslut and The Collagist review Gladman

A nice review of Renee Gladman's Event Factory by A-J Aronstein over at Bookslut. And, at The Collagist, Tom DeBeauchamp on The Ravickians.

Tuesday, January 3, 2012


"Allied with the fiction of Italo Calvino, Doris Lessing, and others, The Ravickians is entertaining, thoughtful, and a quick read. As with everything published by the Dorothy Project, it’s also a lovely little book to hold in your hand."

A nice write-up of The Ravickians and In the Time of the Blue Ball by Jeff VanderMeer at Omnivoracious.
