My novel Overthrow goes on sale today. Call or click over to your local independent bookstore and buy it!
There’s a new interview of me by James McDonald Feder in Kirkus, mostly about the perils and rewards of writing a novel that touches on contemporary issues. And today is also the last day that I’m in “residency” at the Instagram account of the Chicago Review of Books.

Hi, this is Caleb Crain, author of "Overthrow," which comes out today from @VikingBooks, on the 6th and final day of my Instagram "residency" here at @ChicagoRevBooks. At one point in "Overthrow," a character designs a logo for the impossibly utopian group that she belongs to, and it features a flying dove and a leaping dolphin. A couple of weeks ago, on a lark, I decided to make a stamp of the logo—or rather, three stamps, in blue, green, and black ink. Here they are, individually and (when you swipe to the next photo) together. Thanks for the opportunity to present these and my earlier photos! Since I started posting them, the novel has gotten some very generous reviews. The New York Times: "A 19th-century social novel for the 21st-century surveillance state." The Boston Globe: "Legitimately great psychological fiction." The Washington Post: "'Overthrow' accomplishes its mission." I hope you'll visit your local independent bookstore and pick up a copy! –Caleb
