The DB Publishing New York Bundle includes Nathanael West’s Miss Lonelyhearts, Kathleen Rooney’s Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk and Michael Rips’ The Golden Flea.
Set in New York City at the height of the Great Depression, Miss Lonelyhearts stands as one of the most intelligent and hilarious works of the 20th Century. Laced with dark humour, irony and razor-sharp insight, this novel is as hauntingly relevant today as it was nearly a hundred years ago.
When 85-year-old Lillian Boxfish steps out of her apartment on New Year’s Eve in 1984, little does she know she’s about to embark on a journey across the whole of Manhattan.Based on a true story, Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk paints a portrait of an extraordinary woman across the canvas of a changing America: from the Jazz Age to the AIDS epidemic; the Great Depression to the birth of hiphop.
The Golden Flea is a lyrical and enchanting memoir set among the stalls of New York’s legendary Chelsea flea market.
The book bundle comes beautifully wrapped in brown craft paper and a green Daunt Books ribbon, making it a perfect gift.
