Pleasure Boat

Publisher info

jack Estes is the publisher of this small press. It's been active since 1996, focusing mostly on poetry and fiction. In 2006, two new imprints were added: Caravel Mystery Books and Aequitas Books. Caravel is used primarily for mysteries (obviously) and Aequitas for non-fiction with a sociological or philosophical theme. That same year, a small press from Port Townsend, Washington, was resurrected and started working with Pleasure Boat Studio, as a division. This press, Empty Bowl, focuses on poetry and some prose with strong eco-consciousness. Pleasure Boat Studio is located in New York City, having moved from Bainbridge Island, Washington, in 2002.

These are not “touristy” stories. They are deep and hard, a reflection of the regions in which they’re set. In the Alaska segment, Warner focuses on the passions that isolation and weather can bring out in human beings. In his “Hawaiian Island Trilogy,” he looks at a different kind of mythos – the often ethereal dimension of time.

Fiction. Women's Studies. "The expert translation of this almost Gothic story lifts the veil on the place where environment meets the psyche, on women's sensuality and wit. A gift of Portuguese women writing to the English reader." -Lisa Katz
