Review

"I wanted them all, even those I'd already read." --Ron Rosenbaum, The New York Observer "Small wonders." --Time Out London

"[F]irst-rate...astutely selected and attractively packaged...indisputably great works." --Adam Begley, The New York Observer

"I've always been haunted by Bartleby, the proto-slacker. But it's the handsomely minimalist cover of the Melville House edition that gets me here, one of many in the small publisher's fine 'Art of the Novella' series." --The New Yorker

"The Art of the Novella series is sort of an anti-Kindle. What these singular, distinctive titles celebrate is book-ness. They're slim enough to be portable but showy enough to be conspicuously consumed--tiny little objects that demand to be loved for the commodities they are." --KQED (NPR San Francisco)

"Some like it short, and if you're one of them, Melville House, an independent publisher based in Brooklyn, has a line of books for you... elegant-looking paperback editions ...a good read in a small package." --The Wall Street Journal
