Loving Alfred and Guinevere and Skylark makes me think… are there little-known NYRB Classics that you would especially recommend?
I find that their list is extremely varied, and there are lots that I probably wouldn’t bother picking up – but I am besotted with many of their authors, including Tove Jansson, Elizabeth von Arnim, Elizabeth Taylor, Ivy Compton-Burnett, and Rose Macaulay. And then things like those two novels aforementioned that I knew nothing about before being seduced by those NYRB covers. OH, and the extraordinary The Slaves of Solitude by Patrick Hamilton.
(I have stolen Thomas’s image of NYRBs again, because I love it so much. Sorry, Thomas. And thanks.)
So please, dear NYRB fans, let us know your recommendations in the comments, please!
