The Night Manager by John Le Carre

We're excited about

Recently published in the Penguin Modern Classics series, Wolfe’s autobiographical debut is a twentieth-century coming-of-age tale. Written in 1929, It portrays life in a small, North Carolina town and Eugene Gant, a restless young man longing to leave it. Wolfe, who was an influence on writers including Hunter S Thompson and Philip Roth, captures every tiny detail of the people, animals and landscape of this world; it is this rich, vivid imagery that makes the story and its characters unforgettable.
