EVERYMAN'S LATEST RELEASES
This Spring, we publish the last three titles in our P G Wodehouse collection, Louder and Funnier, The Prince and Betty, and Sunset at Blandings.
Our Spring classics list includes a new edition of The Book of Evidence and The Sea by John Banville, published together for the first time and newly introduced by Adam Phillips, as well as three novels by Samuel Beckett: Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable, published together in one volume.
Last but not least is our beautiful new Pocket Poets anthology, Measure for Measure. Edited by Annie Finch and Alexandra Oliver, this is a one-of-a-kind celebration of metrical verse.
Louder and Funnier
P G Wodehouse
In these articles first produced for magazines and substantially rewritten for book publication, Wodehouse reveals his enduring brilliance as a comic writer of topical essays.
The Prince and Betty
P G Wodehouse
A classic musical comedy plot turned into a novel, The Prince and Betty is the story of a man who gives up everything for his girl.
Sunset at Blandings
P G Wodehouse
In Wodehouse's final novel, unfinished at his death, the author returns to his favourite part of England.
There may be trouble in the air, but at Blandings Castle it is always summer, and the powers of darkness are always ultimately defeated.
The Book of Evidence, The Sea
Introduced by Adam Phillips
'No one since Proust has been netter able to recover the charged and dreamy atmospheres of what seems to be childhood.' - Adam Phillips
'Munificent in its own mischievous, mortally serious way, The Sea by John Banville brought new tidings of this arch-stylist's gifts, and won timely recognition of them.' - Seamus Heaney
Measure for Measure: An Anthology of Poetic Metres
Edited by Annie Finch and Alexandra Oliver
This comprehensive and joyous celebration of metrical verse brings together some of the best rhythmic lines in literature.

EVERYMAN'S BOOK OF THE MONTH
One of the foremost American novelists of the early twentieth century, Willa Cather (1873-1947) was born in Virginia but grew up in Nebraska. Before she wrote the novels that would make her famous, she was known as a poet, the most popular of her poems reprinted many times in national magazines and anthologies. In such lyrical poems as ‘Prairie Dawn’, ‘The Hawthorn Tree,’ ‘Going Home’ and ‘Winter at Delphi’, Cather exhibits both a finely tuned sensitivity to the beauties of the physical world and a richly symbolic use of the landscapes of myth. The themes that were to animate her later masterpieces found their first expression in these haunting, elegiac ballads and sonnets.
The Everyman edition is the first to print the complete poems – the collection April Twilights, first published in 1903, together with additional poems which appeared in an expanded edition twenty years later, and others which are uncollected and previously unpublished. It also includes an illuminating selection from her newly released letters.
