The Happy Reader Issue 8

The Happy Reader issue 8 features actress KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS is hailed as a national treasure in not one but two countries, having reached the top of her profession in both Britain, her country of birth, and France, the country she has come to call home. She is also a voracious reader, et voila — the perfect impetus for two wide-ranging HAPPY READER interviews in London and Paris.

The second half of the issue travels west and then west some more, with Willa Cather’s O PIONEERS!, a bittersweet novel that evokes the fearful glory of the American frontier. Horseback preachers, prairie chickens, and pickled gherkins all make brief appearances in our special Nebraska-tinged section, with contributions from notable Great Plains-based writers Amanda Fortini and Clancy Martin, the comic book artist Dash Shaw, and many others besides.

Published by Penguin Classics, 64 pgs, 24.5 × 17 cm, Softcover, 2016
