Portland, OR— October 31, 2019 — Unsolicited Press announced immediate availability of Ain't Long Fore Day, poems that carry on the spirit of the blues, of ever difficult lives ransomed by language.
The poems of Ain’t Long Fore Day by Jim Sallis, alternately lyric and narrative, always touched with mystery, continue the invocation at the heart of all Jim’s work: “Find Beauty. Try to understand. Survive.”
The latest of Jim’s 18 novels, Sarah Jane, was just published by Soho Press, who are also bringing out a new uniform edition of the six earlier, landmark novels of the Lew Griffin cycle. Other books include three of musicology, a biography of writer Chester Himes, a translation of Raymond Queneau’s novel Saint Glinglin, and the source novel for the Cannes-winning film Drive. Jim’s work appears regularly in anthologies, literary quarterlies, mystery and science fiction magazines, and is translated worldwide. He’s won a lifetime achievement award from Bouchercon, the Hammett Award for literary excellence in crime writing, and the Grand Prix de Littérature policière.
Ain't Long Fore Day by Jim Sallis is available directly from the publisher (www.unsolicitedpress.com) and all major retailers. Ingram Book Group distributes the title to the market.
