The Happy Reader Issue 9

The Happy Reader is a collaboration between Penguin Classics and Fantastic Man

The Happy Reader issue 9 stars none other than LILY COLE plus a diagonal dig into the adventure novel TREASURE ISLAND.

A model who owns a bookshop. A movie actress who put it all on hold to clinch an art history degree. For every ounce — and there are many ounces — of celebrity possessed by the new Happy Reader cover star, there is at least one equal measure of bookishness. Photographed here by WOLFGANG TILLMANS, and interviewed by PENNY MARTIN, the whirlwind of entrepreneurial derring-do discusses an array of amazing authors from Vladimir Nabokov to Maggie Nelson. Next, the issue sails off to TREASURE ISLAND by the towering master of the nineteenth-century page turner, ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON. This somewhat boyish yet universally cherished tale gives rise to curious news from the parrot world, a conversation with a singalong genius, and in-depth reportage examining the worldwide electoral surge of pirate political parties.
