Gauntlet Press To Publish Signed Limited Edition of Owen King’s Novel, Double Feature – Joe Hill To Provide Tip-sheet Artwork For Lettered Edition

Double Feature Cover

Gauntlet Press has announced that they will publish a signed limited edition of the acclaimed first novel of Owen King: Double Feature.

Here is a synopsis of the book:

“Sam Dolan is a young man coming to terms with his life in the process and aftermath of making his first film. He has a difficult relationship with his father, B-movie actor Booth Dolan—a boisterous, opinionated, lying lothario whose screen legacy falls somewhere between cult hero and pathetic. Allie, Sam’s dearly departed mother, was a woman whose only fault, in Sam’s eyes, was her eternal affection for his father. Also included in the cast of indelible characters: a precocious, frequently violent half-sister; a conspiracy-theorist second wife; an Internet-famous roommate; a contractor who can’t stop expanding his house; a happy-go-lucky college girlfriend and her husband, a retired Yankees catcher; the morose producer of a true-crime show; and a slouching indie-film legend. Not to mention a tragic sex monster. 

Unraveling the tumultuous, decades-spanning story of the Dolan family’s friends, lovers, and adversaries, Double Feature is about letting go of everything—regret, resentment, dignity, moving pictures, the dead—and taking it again from the top. Against the backdrop of indie filmmaking, college campus life, contemporary Brooklyn, and upstate New York, Owen King’s epic debut novel combines propulsive storytelling with mordant wit and brims with a deep understanding of the trials of ambition and art, of relationships and life, and of our attempts to survive it all.” 

Owen will provide the bonus material for both the signed numbered and lettered editions (with some material appearing only in the lettered edition).

His brother Joe Hill will be doing the artwork for the tip-sheet for the book and will be signing only the 52-copy lettered edition.

The publisher will decide if they can also offer the image as a print for those purchasing the lettered edition. We will keep you informed on the progress of the book and let you know when you can place orders.
