New imprint from Melville House

leave a comment »

Indie publisher Melville House, who put out the wonderful ‘Art of the Novella’ series (I¬†recommended¬†Bonsai and Lucinella), has launched a new imprint, The Neversink Library. Neversink will publish “books from around the world that have been overlooked, underappreciated, looked askance at or foolishly ignored.” Its first collection, to be released this summer, features two books by one of my oh-so-favorite writers, Georges Simenon; off to a swell start if you ask me.

Offer your own suggestion for an out-of-print book Neversink should bring back here. And, for goddsake, read some Simenon. Although I’d start with one of his Inspector Maigret mysteries if I were you; might I suggest The Bar on the Seine?
