Yes! I would like to purchase a membership to the NYRB Book Club.
NYRB Classics are now available through our Book Club for gift-giving, reading groups, or simply for the pleasure of reading. The editors will select one book each month from among our newest titles and send the selection postage-free to any U.S. address.
There has never been a more inexpensive way to purchase this series of classics, described by Michael Dirda in
The Washington Post as "amazingly fine in its choice of titles and in the design of the books."
If you order by February 15, you will receive the February selection, Like Death by Guy de Maupassant in a new translation by Richard Howard. In its devastating depiction of the treacherous nature of love, Like Death is more than the equal of Swann's Way. Richard Howard's new translation brings out all the penetration and poetry of this masterpiece of nineteenth-century fiction.
“A psychological novel par excellence.” — Lorin Stein, Harper's
