At last, a Brautigan Library for Crazy*


After his memoir Dangerous was very publicly dumped by his publisher, hard-right professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has announced he will instead self-publish the book – and that he will sue Simon & Schuster for $10m for backing out of the deal. 
The memoir will be the first book to be published under his own Dangerous Books label, which will specialise in titles by authors who “can’t get published”. The venture was revealed as part of Milo Inc, a new media venture announced by Yiannopoulos.

*The Library was inspired by an idea in Richard Brautigan's 1971 novel "The Abortion: A Historical Romance- a library where anyone could deposit a copy of their own book. Todd Lockwood, a Brautigan fan, started such a library in Vermont in 1990 but it closed in 1995 for lack of funds. John F. Barber, a faculty member at Washington State University-Vancouver, arranged to have the collection brought to Vancouver in 2010.
