Handheld Classics

These are the stories that time forgot, undeservedly. Forgotten novels, short stories, essays, biographies, letters and fables: Handheld Classics looks into dusty bookshelves to find the much-loved stories that don’t get thrown away. What makes the Handheld Classics special are its critical introductions. They’re written in sensible language by experts, explaining the background, exploring the themes, pointing out the interesting aspects, and enthusing about the writing. No jargon, just good sense.

The first Handheld Classics will be published in autumn 2017.
