L.P. Hartley

L.P. Hartley

I was excited to see new editions Bd re-release of L.P. Hartley’s books. They are UK editions paperbacks. The Go-Between, a story of lost innocence, hypocrisy, and “Britishness”, got me hooked to him. Read in college, it has remained one of my most beloved novels. It’s about books as much as it’s about memory. It’s a good example of the importance of rereading, knowledge and innocence so much part of its structure as to make it a knowingly different book on revisiting. These other titles, completely new to me, will make the perfect reading reading. And of course, they are available at the amazing City Lights Bookstore in the city.
