We’ve created a #PreOrderParty for Oscar of Between. Dagger Editions has teamed up with Book Warehouse in Vancouver, BC, to offer pre-order and pick-up fulfillment on all sales of Oscar of Between before March 1st. All books sales through independent bookstores in BC, like Book Warehouse, are counted towards the BC Bestsellers List. By supporting this campaign by way of Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr, Dagger Edition titles like Oscar of Between stand a greater chance of continuing to publish works by and for queer women.
About Oscar of Between: A Memoir of Identity and Ideas
In 2007, at the age of sixty, Betsy Warland finds herself single and without a sense of family. On an impulse, she decides to travel to London to celebrate her birthday, where she experiences an odd compulsion to see an exhibit on the invention of military camouflage. Within the first five minutes of her visit, her lifelong feeling of being aberrant reveals its source: she had never learned the art of camouflage.
This marked the beginning of Oscar of Between: A Memoir of Identity and Ideas. Taking the name Oscar, she embarks on an intimate, nine-year quest by telling her story as “a person of between.” As Oscar, she is able to make sense of her self and the culture that shaped her.
A contemporary Orlando, Oscar of Between extends beyond the author’s personal narrative, pushing the boundaries of form, and by doing so, invents new ways to see ourselves. For more information, go to http://caitlin-press.com/our-books/oscar-of-between/.
