“And after a tough day of being a crime boss, which might include ordering someone’s execution, he’d make it home in time to have dinner with his wife and kids.” — Doug J. Swanson on the life of Benny Binion, the subject of his upcoming book BLOOD ACES — check out the full interview at ArtsBeat

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s beloved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
“You couldn’t accuse Willie Wonka of being reasonable: in a world of children who’ve grown up too fast, he’s an adult who has somehow managed to hang on to his childishness. He’s the opposite of what you’ve been taught to expect from a mentor: where other writer supply their child heroes with grown-ups who teach them how to become grown-ups themselves, Willia Wonka is there to remind Charlie not to grow up too far or too fast.”
—Lev Grossman, from the introduction to our Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which features cover art by award-winning cartoonist Ivan Brunetti.
