JUST ONE BOOK

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

As many of you will know, Chris and I have been struggling to keep Salt moving since June last year when the economic downturn began to affect our press. Our three year funding ends this year: we've £4,000 due from Arts Council England in a final payment, but cannot apply through Grants for the Arts for further funding for Salt's operations. Spring sales were down nearly 80% on the previous year, and despite April's much improved trading, the past twelve months has left us with a budget deficit of over £55,000. It's proving to be a very big hole and we're having to take some drastic measures to save our business.

Here's how you can help us to save Salt and all our work with hundreds of authors around the world.

JUST ONE BOOK

1. Please buy just one book, right now. We don't mind from where, you can buy it from us or from Amazon, your local shop or megastore, online or offline. If you buy just one book now, you'll help to save Salt. Timing is absolutely everything here. We need cash now to stay afloat. If you love literature, help keep it alive. All it takes is just one book sale. Go to our online store and help us keep going.

2. Share this note on your profile. Tell your friends. If we can spread the word about our cash crisis, we can hopefully find more sales and save our literary publishing. Remember it's just one book, that's all it takes to save us. Please do it now.

With my best wishes to you
Jen
Director

Fødselsdagsgaver

Jeg har lige købt fødselsdagsgave til mig selv her; noget græsk (Aristoteles), noget svensk (Norén), noget italiensk (Pasolini) noget fransk (Bourriaud) og noget amerikansk (Fitterman/Place). Nu ønsker jeg mig bare et par uger fuldkommen uden forstyrrelser til at få gaverne læst også...

En af grundene til at værdierne
forholder sig inden for netop
det hieraki jeg tidligere
har opstillet, at misbrugeren
den fornedrede er mere interessant i digtet
end den afklarede, er muligvis
påvirkningen fra Freud
At sygdom er mere interessant end dannelse
At symptomer er mere interessante
at fortolke. At digtningen
bliver symptomatisk, symptomer
på virkeligheden, snarere
end dannende
- fra Lars Skinnebachs Enhver betydning er også en mislyd der udkommer i dag.
