to sum up, the nyrb's mission is to bring foreign literature in foreign languages to the english-speakers of the world! what a great mission, right? to name a few of their freshly-translated authors:
vasily grossman | daphne du maurier | georges simenon | charles simic | elizabeth david | anton chekhov | h.p. lovecraft | stefan zweig | patrick leigh fermor | norman mailer | lionel trilling | dante | robert hughes
now, to the point: their covers are marvelous and unique interpretations of what each book holds. i have some favorites that i've seen around the shop... see any that you like?
i really love that they used a wegman weimeraner for asleep in the sun.
well, that's all for today, happy readers! maybe i've given you some new idears for what to read next?
p.s. you know you can always go here to stock your nyrb library (for 20% less)!
