Introducing Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short stories, novellas and essays from the world’s greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith.
Celebrating the range and diversity of Penguin Classics, they take us from snowy Japan to springtime Vienna, from haunted New England to a sun-drenched Mediterranean island, and from a game of chess on the ocean to a love story on the moon. Beautifully designed and printed, these collectible editions are bound in colourful, tactile cloth and stamped with foil.
Regarded as one of world literature’s foremost novelists, Fyodor Dostoevsky’s short stories are also some of the best ever written. ‘White Nights’ tells of love and loss on the streets of St. Petersburg, ‘A Nasty Business’ presents the hilarious tale of a general dropping in on the wedding of a subordinate, while ‘The Meek One’ is an existentialist tale of marriage and tragedy.
