EVERYMAN'S LATEST RELEASES

We begin 2018 with Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres, introduced by Lucy Hughes-Hallett, and a volume of Angela Carter's greatest works, The Bloody Chamber, Wise Children, and Fireworks. Sun Tzu's The Art of War, written 2,500 years ago and a bestseller for the last century, is published in a brilliant new translation by Peter Harris, with a foreword by General Petraeus showing why it is still studied in military academies all over the world.

We commemorate the Armistice of 1918 with two of the great prose works to come out of the Great War, Robert Graves' Goodbye to All That and Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front in the recent translation by Brian Murdoch, with introductions by Miranda Seymour and Professor Norman Stone.

In Autumn we publish Alexander von Humboldt's Writings, selected and introducted by Andrea Wulf, who biography of Humboldt is now being translated into twenty-four languages and has already sold more than 300,000 copies. Dr Kate Loveman's Pepys, selected from the Latham and Matthew's edition (1970–83), the only reliable and uncensored transcription of the diarist's shorthand, fills up the need for a good one-volume edition (700 pages), with up-to-date notes and scholarship.

Pope's Poems, selected by Professor Claude Rawson, with the William Kent engravings from the first edition of the Dunciad, and Poems of Rome, an anthology for literary tourists actual and virtual, are the latest editions to our popular Pocket Poets series.

     In this last novel of the popular Palliser series, former Prime Minister Plantaganet Palliser struggles to come to terms with the death of his wife, the end of his political career and the discovery that his children by no means share his hopes and ambitions for their future. Trollope's original text is here restored, proving conclusively that the publisher who made him slash it by nearly one quarter in 1879 did him a huge disservice.

    Everyman publishes the only trade edition.
