Joshua Ellison is a founding editor of Restless Books, a digital press launching in September, 2013.  “We have set out to create a new publishing house for a fluid, cosmopolitan, globally engaged world. We call ourselves Restless because that is the quality we are looking for in our readers: people who are at home in the world, but also seeking out new experiences, new travels, new points of view. Our press is an invitation to explore the world—not just as a tourist or spectator, but as a participant ready to engage fearlessly with timely questions of culture, politics, and human potential.”
