3. Dzanc books will publish Terese Svoboda‘s fifth novel, Pirate Talk or Mermalade, on Talk Like a Pirate Day, September 19 at Bluestockings. The first chapter’s at HTML Giant, and she’ll read it live at the Brooklyn Book Festival, 10 a.m. September 10 with Pers Petterson and Scott Spencer, in a program called Being is Scary. “Told entirely through dialogue, this quirky tale of period pirate wannabes makes a jeu d’esprit of the privateer life even as it baldly de-romanticizes it… Periodic visits from a mermaid (perhaps their half-sister) and a parrot who steals the scene every time he croaks “Hanged!” add to the fun.” —Publisher’s Weekly. The trailer for the book is here.
