about

BookThug is a small press based in Toronto, Canada. Our editorial vision is to enrich and advance the tradition of experimental literature. BookThug’s publisher Jay MillAr began publishing chapbooks in 1992, under the name Boondoggle Books. Boondoggle was partially modeled after blewointment press, founded by Canadian experimental poet and publisher bill bissett. Eleven years later, MillAr transformed Boondoggle Books into BookThug, publishing both trade books and chapbooks, all in the tradition of experimental literature.
