Open throat book shot Rodrigo Corral

We couldn’t be more excited to reveal the Rodrigo Corral-designed cover for Henry Hoke’s novel Open Throat, which we’ll publish June 6, 2023! Open Throat is narrated by a lonely and lovable queer mountain lion living in the drought-devastated land under the Hollywood sign. Part indictment of climate change and inequality, part exploration of the indignities of sentience, it’s a book like no other, a read-it-in-a-sitting marvel of storytelling.

Catherine Lacey says that Open Throat is a “blinding spotlight beam of a book that I was completely unable and unwilling to put down,” while Chris Kraus calls it “original, fun, and completely awakening,” and “a devastating portrait of LA today.”

Open Throat is available on June 6, and you can pre-order now. And in the meantime, follow Henry on Instagram and Twitter for updates, both mountain lion related and not.
