The Library of America: A Treasure in the World of Books

There are publishers and then there is the Library of America.

The only non-profit cultural organization honed into preserving, publishing, publicizing some of the most important writing ever, the Library of America is a treasure in the world of books. 

Now into its 250th volume, LOA has all kinds of tomes for all types of readers. Handsomely produced, the books run the gamut from American Musicals to American Poets to Shakespeare in America to Kurt Vonnegut, Mark Twain, Henry James, the Harlem Renaissance, a Lincoln Anthology, Great Thinkers, and on and on.

“Bernard Malamud Novels and Stories of the 1940s & 50s,” 720 pages/$35 cloth and  “Bernard Malamud Novels and Stories of the1960s” 920 pages/$35 cloth are keepsakes for any reader. Taken as a whole the books features The Natural, The Assistant, A New Life, The Fixer and more. Great literature in solid and handsomely produced books.

“Frost” is a thousand pages plus and just $35.00 is an authoritative and comprehensive collection of the top American poet of the 20th century. Like the Malamud books, these collected poems, prose and plays in one magnificently produced volume is a keepsake for the millions of lovers of this New England icon.

For reading, for collecting, for gift giving…these books are worth your attention. They are just a trio of the great works that the fabulous Library of America has to offer.
