The Sentimentalists, Skibsrud's debut novel, is published by Gaspereau Press, which can only print about 1,000 copies a week. Eager readers can download the book onto an e-reader, though, if they are desperate to get it right away.
The company prides itself on hand-crafted books and has been steadfast in its refusal to outsource in order to meet demand.
