--Ron Rosenbaum, The New York Observer Small wonders.
--Time Out London [F]irst-rate...astutely selected and attractively packaged...indisputably great works.
--Adam Begley, The New York Observer I've always been haunted by Bartleby, the proto-slacker. But it's the handsomely minimalist cover of the Melville House edition that gets me here, one of many in the small publisher's fine 'Art of the Novella' series.
--The New Yorker The Art of the Novella series is sort of an anti-Kindle. What these singular, distinctive titles celebrate is book-ness. They're slim enough to be portable but showy enough to be conspicuously consumed--tiny little objects that demand to be loved for the commodities they are.
--KQED (NPR San Francisco) Some like it short, and if you're one of them, Melville House, an independent publisher based in Brooklyn, has a line of books for you... elegant-looking paperback editions ...a good read in a small package.
