November Events for Songs of Kabir

Poet, editor, and University of Allahabad professor Arvind Krishna Mehrotra will be reading from his dazzling new translation of Kabir’s poetry at two events in New York City on November 2nd & 3rd. Following the attempts of Ezra Pound and Robert Bly, he has revitalized the work of this legendary North Indian bhakti poet, which explodes with passion, satire, metaphysical ideas, and upside-down language.

Hav by Jan Morris

We are pleased to announce the publication of Hav, a novel by the great Jan Morris. Hav consists of two parts: Last Letters from Hav, originally published in 1985, and its sequel, Hav of the Myrmidons, published in 2006.

The Mangan Inheritance

We’re pleased to announce the publication of Brian Moore’s The Mangan Inheritance. Set in New York City, Montreal, and rural Ireland, this novel is a dark and captivating tale of a young man’s attempt to untangle a mysterious family legacy. After being out of print for over twenty-five years, this outstanding work by Moore—an unparalleled spinner of literary suspense and a near-faultless storyteller—is available again to a new generation of readers.

Also releasing in August are three of our favorites, previously published in the series, and now available with fresh new covers: Camara Laye’s The Radiance of the King; Sylvia Townsend Warner’s Mr. Fortune; and Glenway Wescott’s The Pilgrim Hawk.

The Rescuers

Margery Sharp’s The Rescuers, her classic tale of pluck, luck, and derring-do, is now available from The New York Review Children’s Collection. Having been out of print for over ten years, we are pleased to bring it back to life in an edition with illustrations by the great Garth Williams.
