Until Newman begins wearing glasses, and others begin to mistake him for a Jew. Arthur Miller's chilling novel displays the same emotional force and searing moral precision of his plays, as the intensity of anti-Semitism in New York mounts, and the prejudices Newman shares begin to turn threateningly against him.

Description Product Details Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! More Books in Plays See All. In Stock. Since I have continued the focus on modern classics in translation but we also now publish a much wider array of contemporary international literary fiction.
And we started a children's imprint -- Pushkin Children's Books -- in , first U. PCB like the adult list is focused on classic and contemporary children's books from all over the world, mostly in translation and mostly being published in English by us for the first time, and already accounts for about a third of our turnover. How did you discover his books? Which of them do you publish? I first read Stefan Zweig as a teenager, as I lived in Germany for a year as an exchange student.
As mentioned above, Zweig was one of the first authors republished by Pushkin 18 years ago, and we've continued that tradition.
I was expecting something similar with this but sadly it just isn't any comparison. By Victoria Murphy. Six hours was an optimistic estimate by Loeser — it took me over a week to complete it — but otherwise he was unnecessarily gloomy. The trade paperback job that I had was actually new. The World of the Book.
I think it's Wes Anderson's masterpiece, and it's of course been wonderful as the main English-language publisher of Zweig to see what a dramatic increase in interest in Zweig's writings the film has generated. We were lucky enough to collaborate with Wes Anderson on a little book of Zweig's writings selected by Anderson and with an introductory conversation between him and Zweig's latest biographer, George Prochnik.
Does humorous fiction have a harder time being designated "classic" than fiction that is serious or dramatic? Yes, definitely.
There is of course great classic comic fiction -- think Swift or Thackeray, or more recently Waugh and Kingsley Amis. But these are probably the exceptions. I don't believe they are much greater than the general challenges facing publishers today -- particularly of fiction.
But we're working on changing that — one book at a time! It's an incredible book and has long suffered from inferior translations -- our new translation is brilliant.
We're all thrilled to be publishing several books by Erwin Mortier -- his U. His novel of the great war, "While the Gods Were Sleeping," has been translated into a number of languages and was a bestseller in Belgium and the Netherlands. We're publishing 5 of his books. And we are publishing the first and second volumes in Robert Merle's epic, swashbuckling historical fiction series Fortunes of France with "The Brethren" followed later in the year by "City of Wisdom and Blood.
Do you see a difference between the books American and British readers respond to? Generally speaking, no.
Particularly in regards to fiction, I would say they are nearly identical in terms of taste -- and sales generally bear this out. There are of course individual titles now and again that work in one market but not another, but broadly speaking there isn't a huge difference in taste. Business as usual, really.
We release e-books of 9 out of 10 of our titles simultaneous with the print versions. The advantage of course is e-books never go out of print or out of stock and there are no distribution costs.
