The Atlantic Launches "The Atlantic Books," a New Long-Form Digital Imprint
Rauch first drafted this book, years ago, strictly for himself, to make a personal record of his "life without a soul." After hesitating for years to publish it, he was inspired to do so partly by the redemptive power of his own marriage, to a man—the marriage he thought he could never have.
The author of five books (including Gay Marriage: Why It Is Good for Gays, Good for Straights, and Good for America) and the winner of the National Magazine Award, Rauch has been writing for The Atlantic since 1989.
Denial: My Twenty-Five Years Without a Soul is available today exclusively on Kindle Singles and soon via Nook, iBooks, and Kobo for $1.99. For more information, please visit www.theatlantic.com/denial.
The publication marks the inaugural release from The Atlantic Books, a new imprint that will extend The Atlantic's tradition of important journalism and powerful storytelling to a new digital format accessible on tablet and mobile devices. Spearheaded by Atlantic senior editor Geoffrey Gagnon, the ebooks will include both original long-form pieces between 10,000 and 30,000 words, and curated archival collections that span the magazine's 155-year history and feature some of the best-loved voices in American letters.
About The Atlantic
Since its founding in 1857 as a magazine about "the American Idea" that would be of "no party or clique," The Atlantic has been at the forefront of brave thinking in journalism. One of the first magazines to launch on the Web in the early 1990s, The Atlantic has continued to help shape the national debate across print, digital, and event platforms. With the addition of its news- and opinion-tracking site, TheAtlanticWire.com, and now TheAtlanticCities.com on global cities, The Atlantic is a multimedia forum on the most-critical issues of our times, from politics, business, urban affairs, and the economy, to technology, arts, and culture. The Atlantic is the flagship property of Washington, D.C.–based publisher Atlantic Media Company.
