EVERYMAN'S LATEST RELEASES

Our Christmas Newsletter contains a comprehensive list of our new releases, and a selection of our favourite titles this Christmas to make present-buying easy. You can read it here.

This year we have published variety of excellent titles, from a wonderful new selection of the great man of letters Horace Walpole, edited by Stephen Clarke, to a collection from the incomparable Marguerite Duras, including The Lover, Wartime Notebooks and Practicalities, all in one volume. Everyman's Library is now the first to publish the complete text of Anthony Trollope's The Duke's Children, the final novel in his Palliser series. 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.

Recent additions to our Pocket Poets editions are The Language of Flowers, edited by Jane Holloway, and Poems of Gratitude, edited by Emily Fragos. Our Pocket Classics range now includes a selection of Saki's short stories, and Rome Stories, which follows on from Paris Stories, New York Stories and London Stories.

The Children's Classics collection has seen two new additions: Edgar Allen Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination, with illustrations by Arthur Rackham; and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's delightful The Little Prince, with its original illustrations by the author.

     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.

    '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
