Wally Koval's ACCIDENTALLY WES ANDERSON has been featured in The New York Times Design section, online and in print. They highlight the AWA online community of over one million "Adventurers" and their photographers' commitment to "finding visual order amid global chaos" in "[s]teeples, lighthouses, theaters, wedding-cake hotels, outdated technology and, most predictably, the color pink, so rarely seen in typical architectural discourse." The piece speaks to the shared wanderlust behind the Instagram brand-turned-book, but also suggests that it acts as "inspiration for your own homes, which might do with a dash of dreaminess in these dreary times." Voracious will publish ACCIDENTALLY WES ANDERSON on October 20, 2020.

Amina Cain’s INDELICACY has been roundly praised this month. The Guardian writes: “INDELICACY is a thing of real delicacy, with a fine, distilled quality to the writing, every word precisely chosen, precisely placed. There’s a slyness to Cain’s writing that cuts through, and makes the tale increasingly engrossing.” The Irish Times calls the book “[a]n extraordinary feminist fable about women and art.” Meanwhile, The Financial Times writes: “There are remarkable things in this book…Perhaps it was always Cain’s intention to draw in busy readers quickly and easily, then suspend us, helpless and happy, in the extraordinary world she has created, unmoored in time or place.” Farrar, Straus, and Giroux published the book on February 11, 2020.
