THIS. IS. HAPPENING.
Here are some of the questions that have been asked so far:
“What is your advice to the average BA English major aspiring to get into the publishing industry?”
“What has been the most contested (internally) book that you have either released as a Penguin Classic or never ended up getting released?”
“If you had to recommend 5 classics books for everyone in the country to be required to read, what would they be and why?”
“If you had to kill one author with your bare hands who would it be”
I swear when putting together this wishlist for October I didn’t plan on it all being the same color family! It just sort of happened!

Elda Rotor, the woman in charge of Penguin Classics (who does a damn fine job, we must say) is doing a Reddit AMA on the Books subreddit tomorrow, Oct 1st, at noon. If you are interested in publishing, literature, old dead people, or are just wondering what to read next, make sure you stop by.

A woman from the audience asks: ‘Why were there so few women among the Beat writers?’ and [Gregory] Corso, suddenly utterly serious, leans forward and says: “There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shock. In the ’50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up. —
