Why do other people like to collect this series? What is your latest acquisition?
My newest acquisition is Life and Fate, which I originally acquired at the library and decided I had to own - especially once I found out it was a NYRB book.
Edited to add that I got a great NYRB copy of Olivia Manning's Fortunes of War The Balkan Trilogy today at Barnes and Noble. It was a complete surprise. I was a bit bad as I already own an edition of this book, but the NYRB was just so nice.
I just got an early reviewers copy of The New York Stories of Elizabeth Hardwick yesterday so I am looking forward to reading that next.
Hesperus Classics deserves a little love too. Check out all the cool titles on amazon!
There's also a publisher called Oneworld Classics that shows great promise.
I didn't know about Oneworld Classics.
Thanks so much for posting the link!
obviously kidding, but it is amusing to imagine
I'm enjoying The Letter Killers by Sigizmund K.
A high quality collection that includes alot of experimental, very interesting authors (Alain Robbe-Grillet, Gilles Rozier, W. G. Sebald, et al) is the Swedish Panache series. Here's a list of what it includes: http://www.albertbonniersforlag.se/Bocker-auto/Panache/Tidigare-utgivning/.

#51 Of course, agree with Rick too about comparing authors; just was trying to say how different they and the books were, but of course you knew that already, so what was I saying? Nothing meaningful!
