It’s a bibliophile’s dream: access to 125 years’ worth of gems, both obscure and famous, from the archives of the reading public’s most celebrated and influential publication. Tina Jordan, deputy editor of The New York Times Book Review, got all the goods—the groundbreaking, the game-changing, and the engrossingly weird—and curated them for a “delightful” (Vanity Fair) compilation that’s both coffee table book and conversation piece: a gold mine you can get lost in for hours. She’ll give us the fascinating inside track on unearthing these jewels—everything from a bad early review of Anne of Green Gables to an essay by James Baldwin to unexpected op-eds and gossip items—and how they all came together to make, in the words of Kirkus, “an ebullient celebration of literature.”
