In 1938 Louis MacNeice published his second collection of poems with Faber; his 'personal essay' Modern Poetry for OUP; and Zoo, a prose commission from Michael Joseph to write an impressionistic 'guide' to the London Zoo. Reviewed recently in the New Statesman, we're glad to return it to print. [more]
As Richard T. Kelly wrote recently in this essay for the Guardian, David Stacton is perhaps the most unjustly neglected novelist of the postwar years - a contemporary and equal of Philip Roth, John Updike and Walker Percy. High time then that he should be rediscovered. A number of his novels are now in Faber Finds.
Peter Hobbs writing on the Faber Finds blog about R. C. Hutchinson's A Child Possessed:'It is a startlingly brave book to write, quiet and deeply human, a compassionate and fierce love story. It is certainly one of the great British novels of the 20th century, and is perhaps the most moral book I know.'
