Thane Boulton is the Founder and Publisher of bespoke New York literary imprint Thane & Prose, which publishes books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in digital, audiobook—and finely crafted clothbound editions.
I studied poetry with Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti at a small “literary house” at Washington College on the Chester River—and witnessed excellence; there too, I studied fiction with Toni Morrison, and playwriting with Edward Albee, and witnessed the same.
Later, I worked with George Plimpton and Frank McCourt in New York—and was inspired.
After, I founded Thane & Prose in my pursuit of writers who did what these men and women did—who pursued the art of storytelling.
Today, when I find these authors, like Thomas Purcell, Mario Garcia, and Lucas Hunt, it is my privilege to handcraft their books to be published for the reader to experience and enjoy.—Thane Boulton

In Iowa, Hunt brings his literary
camera closer to the fire within the belly of a boy poised to champion the writer's dream of life in Manhattan.

It exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours.”

A heart-wrenching account of hellish circumstances, The Unworthy Gender critiques issues of patriarchy, the mistreatment of women, and a debased Muslim government—all with an insurmountable compassion for its people, the culture, and an unrelenting hope for a better life.
