Brandon Shimoda's Portuguese, the first title in the joint-published series, is already available for pre-order online and will appear on the shelves March 12, 2013. The second joint-publication, Bianca Stone's Someone Else's Wedding Vows, is soon to follow.
The Portland-based independent press has been an innovator in the publishing industry since its creation in 2002. Tin House Books authors have garnered attention from the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and O, the Oprah magazine.
