Guess who's coming to dinner

This just in from Dalkey Archive Press: "Miss MacIntosh, My Darling has shipped from the printer."

I pre-ordered this a little over two years ago when Dalkey relaunched, about two years after I read Ducks, Newburyport, after which I subsequently listened to the Two Month Review podcast's read-along, during which I believe theoretical parallels were drawn from the latter book to the former, at which time I learned Miss MacIntosh was completely out of print and that it was essentially impossible to get one's hands on a copy of it. Now here's to seeing if it takes me another two-odd years to actually get around to reading the thing (which might be how long it takes me to finish Lies and Sorcery, despite how much I seem to think I like it).

To be clear, this is a zero-shade-thrown post: there was a good 2022 update on the struggles of bringing the press back to life. I have to imagine getting this beast of a book out into the world feels real good.
