Forthcoming from The Library of America (Fall 2015)

Last summer we announced the titles for the first half of 2015; several of those titles are still at press and will be arriving in our warehouse in the coming weeks. Meanwhile we've been putting the finishing touches on the list of publications for the remainder of the year—including a collection gathering the works of an author (and subject matter) new to the LOA pantheon, as well as a two-volume anthology that resurrects several under-appreciated novels that are either out of print or hard to find.

At the end of the list we note two last-minute additions—both paperbacks—to our spring list.

  1. I am very excited by the two volume set of Women crime writers. I am a big Dorothy B. Hughes fan and would love to see a LOA volume of her collected works. Also welcome is another volume of Edith Wharton, one of the greatest American novelists.

  2. Now that you're on a roll with crime fiction, will the LOA be getting to Jim Thompson? I'd rush out and buy it!
