The Modern Manuscript is all about the timelessness of fantastic books. Because of this focus, each month I feature a different, often lesser known literary classic, with a bias toward titles from world literature (anything published outside the US or UK). At the same time, the world of book publishing is changing rapidly today, with the flowering of self and digital publishing. Whether you are an anxious reader, aspiring author or book publishing professional, or simply an interested by-stander, it can never hurt to be informed. In my posts, I try to make sense of these recent changes and what they mean for readers, writers, and the future of great books.
