Recensori in anteprimaIslandport Press

Islandport Press is a dynamic, award-winning publisher dedicated to stories rooted in the essence and sensibilities of New England. We strive to capture and explore the grit, heart, beauty, and infectious spirit of the region by telling tales, real and imagined, that can be appreciated in many forms by readers, dreamers, and adventurers everywhere.

In 2020, Islandport Press celebrated its 20th anniversary, and we couldn't be more proud given the radical and disruptive change that has swept through the book industry since we published Hauling by Hand: The Life and Times of a Maine Island in the spring of 2000. Publisher Dean Lunt started the company in his Yarmouth basement and shipped early book orders from his garage, at times in temperatures so cold he had to plug in spot heaters so the tape would stick to the cardboard boxes. Today we have published more than 200 titles, not only original works, but also out-of-print books that we have revived and brought new attention to both the book and the author. Finding hidden gems whether in the guise of a new author or a forgotten classic is something we treasure and take great pride in doing.

Three generations after Chin Island was inhabited by a bustling community of laborers, only a few families remain.

In his memoir, Moon in Full, Marpheen Chan recounts an emotional and modern day coming-of-age story that has roots in the Cambodian genocide and weaves through troubled familial relationships, housing projects, foster homes, churches, and college life, as well as rural Maine where he struggles to reconcile his fears and beliefs as a young gay man of color adopted into a white Evangelical family. He has continually struggled with his lost identity as a Cambodian and homophobia as a young gay man of color. As PTSD, poverty, abuse, and addiction took their toll on his mother, Chann and his siblings were removed and placed into foster care. And that is where his journey into adulthood truly begins.

With compassion and honesty, Chann recalls what he has learned, what he has found and what he has lost in his evolution from rebel boy to holy-roller youth to advocate for equality and civil rights, all in one of the nation's oldest and least diverse states; but a state that he proudly calls home. Chann's story shines a spotlight on the search for truth, compassion, and the struggles of our complicated era.

Aprile 2022 Pacchetto

Omaggio terminato: 25 aprile alle 06:00 pm EDT

There was a lot of pain on Munjoy Hill in Portland, a close-knit working-class neighborhood of immigrants that also saw its share of drugs, alcohol, poverty, and violence in the 1960s and 1970s. A young Ed Crockett, at home with seven siblings, an ailing and broke mother, and more than a dozen stray animals, was caught in the middle of it all and looking for a way out. Crockett's memoir is an often bittersweet story that captures the joys of youth and love of family set against a backdrop of poverty, uncertainty, and the ever-present specter of an alcoholic and often homeless father whose flaws, life choices, and fate haunt a young man and tear at his confidence even as a adult. Can he honor his mother's pleadings, "don't be like your father," and rise above the family's cycle of poverty and alcoholism? With love, compassion, and the cleared-eyed benefit of time, Crockett writes of his siblings, his neighborhood, the eccentric wisdom of his mother, and life in a small city in the years before it emerged as one of the hippest places in America.
