1989 Clarke, JaimeRoundabout Press will publish Clarke’s novel “Vernon Downs” in April 2014. Clarke wrote in an email, “I’ve always been a proponent of small press publishing and as a co-founder of the literary magazine POST ROAD, I know how hard it is to be a publisher.”

About the Book…

“Vernon Downs is a gripping, hypnotically written and unnerving look at the dark side of literary adulation. Jaime Clarke’s tautly suspenseful novel is a cautionary tale for writers and readers alike–after finishing it, you may start to think that J.D. Salinger had the right idea after all.”
—Tom Perrotta, author of Election, Little Children, and The Leftovers
