We’re pleased to announce Secret Gallery Publishing. Secret Gallery Publishing is dedicated to publishing high quality books, zines, and other publications featuring Secret Gallery artists.
Our first title will be The Secret Gallery’s co-founder Chris Minnick’s 2nd novel! The book will be available wherever books are sold starting in January 2020, but you can buy it today from the Secret Gallery.
Here’s the cover and a blurb about it:
Pickled Punk tells the story of Mike O’Malley, a circus punk who went from cleaning elephant cages to business manager of a failing circus. When his grandiose ideas for modernizing the circus end up destroying it, the only person who can save him from the furious clown cabal and clown jail is an amateur con-woman with a drinking problem.
Pickled Punk expands on Chris’s first book, Ferment , and combines absurdist humor, circus philosophy, business advice, and booze. Minnick’s writing style has been compared to Kurt Vonnegut and Charles Bukowski. To read more about Chris and his writing, check out this 4-part interview (part 1) (part 2) (part 3) (part 4) with him from 2018.
The book has a release date of December 13, but is available now for pre-orders. If you pre-order, we promise to get them to you (or to the recipient of your choice) in time for the holidays! Plus, Chris will sign every copy that’s sold through the gallery website or in the gallery itself!
In 2020, we plan to release several other books, including one by one of the Secret Gallery’s favorite artists! Stay tuned for more information and updates!
