Nicky Singer, who launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund publication of a novelisation of her stage-play Island just over a week ago, writes compellingly about her reasons for doing so.
Like Slow Food, and even Slow TV now, Slow Books will be about those quiet, deep things beneath the current market shout of the world. And I have this quiet dream that, one day, Slow Books will gather together writers from all over the world with such stories to tell. And then, maybe, there will be whole shelves of Slow Books. And people who care about such things will walk past the glittery branded covers knowing that, on the Slow Books shelf, they will find something worth dreaming about.
