"Mr. Eugenides is blessed with the storyteller's most magical gift, the ability to transform the mundane into the extraordinary" --The New York Times Book Review"These tiny little titles are pocket-sized, shiny, and gorgeous. Featuring authors like Marilynne Robinson and Jeffery Eugenides, they're the kind of books you'll have to own the entire set of, because they're just that pretty -- and it happens to be lovely that they fit in just about every bag you own. You can't be caught anywhere without a book, of course." -- Julia Seales, Bustle"Our books today are the neatest little things you'll see in the rest of 2015's book-year: a set of Modern Classics from Picador Press, done up in a neat bow!" -- Open Letters Monthly
