New Directions: Classics Old and New

Article by staff

How literary are we at Brazos Bookstore? One of our staff members --you may know the one-- has a New Directions tattoo. Pretty intense, but understandable: since 1936, New Directions has been one of the world's leading publishers of fiction, poetry, and literature-in-translation. This summer, we celebrate their achievement with a display featuring some of our favorites, from classics (like Djuna Barnes and Borges) to contemporary favorites (Bolano, anyone?). Come browse--and maybe if you buy a book, you'll find out which one of us has that tattoo.
