You might have already guessed that this is Emily Books's March pick!  We'll send it to our subscribers on its NYRB release date in late March, later than we usually send out our picks, but worth the wait.
I got the print edition in the mail yesterday and last night cracked its spine waiting for my subway home from work. Within ten seconds a man approached me. He had something to say!  ”That’s my favorite book,” he said. “I’m so glad more people are reading it now.”
I stuttered something about how it is a new edition and he just gave me a look like obviously he knows that, everyone knows that. After a week on the West Coast an interaction like this was just what I needed to feel back at home.  Now you’re in New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of slightly pompous dudes who know when to anticipate the release of new NYRB Classics.
