Forty years after it was first published, Troubles, by J G Farrell, was announced, on May 19, 2010, as the winner of the Lost Man Booker Prize — a one-off prize to honour the books published in 1970, but not considered for the prize when its rules were changed.
It’s not easy being Edie, and at only ten years old, there’s nothing fair about being a middle kid in the Cares family. But you have to be an indomitable character if you want to survive a parentless summer by the seaside with snooty brothers, a show-off sister, a pair of very small half-siblings (that you must take sailing), some stolen things, an oncoming hurricane, and, of course, a mystery that needs solving. With the publication of The New York Review Children’s Collection edition of E.C. Spykman’s classic, Terrible, Horrible Edie, she’s back, standing shoulder to shoulder with all the gutsy girls from American juvenile fiction.
The New York Review Children’s Collection wholeheartedly endorses the Children’s Book Week, and encourages you to visit your local bookstore or the CBC website to find out about more events in your neighborhood.
Last Thursday, NYRB Classics presented an evening of New York Stories, past and present, at The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City for the 2010 PEN World Voices Festival. There, a remarkable panel of Quim Monzó, Darryl Pinckney, Roxana Robinson, and Colm Tóibín tackled the complex relationships that Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Elizabeth Hardwick had with New York City.
For those unable to attend the panel, we are pleased to provide this link to the complete audio of the program.
Born in Baltimore and raised in Brooklyn, William Lindsay Gresham was fascinated by the Coney Island sideshows. Developing an unerring eye for the scene’s details, he deserves to be remembered as one of America’s best chroniclers of the underground. Now available from NYRB Classics, at a limited time 30% discount, his Nightmare Alley is an indelible noir classic on the varieties of deception and the dream of redemption.
NYRB Classics is once again a proud sponsor of PEN’s annual World Voices Festival—which aims to foster international understanding by bringing international and American authors together in conversation. This year NYRB Classics and PEN World Voices Festival present an evening of New York Stories, past and present, at The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 29th.
