Two Augusts In A Row In A Row, Shelley Marlow's new novel and the seventh book in Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers Series, is a love letter between generations of queer people. Set in New York City in 2001, we follow Phillip—a gender subversive/gender queer in search of grace and magic—through rich, sad, humorous language that is singularly Shelley Marlow's.
With spare, economical writing, Marlow creates rich parallel worlds...Marlow gives us that rare thing-- a sad and humorous character driven narrative that is rife with life, with wisdom. --Jeffery Renard Allen, author of Song of the Shank
Kevin Killian writes, "I've been dying for something first rate and innovative and have found this in Marlow's writing. Her hero, Phillip/Philomena...is the most enchanting and elusive central character in a novel since Cassandra in Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle. While many have compared Marlow to the late Jane Bowles, I would agree if only there was a loving and empathetic Jane Bowles, and now there is and here is her book."
