After having read Memoirs of a Master Forger and getting acquainted with all the demons that Heaney/Joyce has written about, I now know that my personal demon has something to do with impulsive and constant book buying. Lately, I've been buying all the NYRB editions that I can get my hands on.
These NYRB editions are a delight to read. NYRB has reprinted some forgotten non-contemporary novels, which have been overlooked by more renowned classics publishers such as Penguin and Oxford University Press. Plus, their simple but elegant designs and color schemes make a fantastic addition to one's bookshelves.
Thanks to NYRB, I've read the novels of L. P. Hartley, Alberto Moravia, Janet Hobhouse, and John Horne Burns, just to name a few.
