Mid-June brings the literary birthdays of Mark Van Doren, Maria Dermoût, and Jean-Paul Sartre.
June has many literary birthdays; in just the first few days of the month, NYRB celebrates the lives and works of three very different authors.
Just in time for summer book club decisions, we have added three new reading group guides.
The Goshawk, a book in which White chronicles his attempts to train a hawk. White’s Mistress Masham’s Repose, published by The New York Review Children’s Collection, is the story of a ten-year-old girl who discovers a community of Lilliputians living on a deserted island at the far end of her estate. Maria’s discovery leads to a thrilling adventure in this novel of true literary ingenuity.
