What an interesting find! I've not heard of this author but I'm intrigued. I would love to subscribe to NYRB selections one of these days. These are definitely books that make you think and get out of your comfort zone.


It is definitely a splurge to subscribe but the books are always so good and I really look forward to that new book each month. I might not have heard about this author otherwise! This year the selections have definitely gotten me out of my normal comfort zone!!


I’ve heard the name Robert Aickman, but haven’t read him. I look forward to hearing what you think! And short stories for Short Story Month—how perfect! NYRB seems to send such an interesting mix of books. One of these years, I’m going to live dangerously and subscribe ;)


I'm not sure how I missed him, but I don't recall ever coming across his name. I have already ILLd a couple of his other books. I had no idea he was paired with Elizabeth Jane Howard (and I read a memoir by her and I am sure she must have mentioned him so weird that his name never stuck). I am, however, moving oh so slowly on my short stories so far. The NYRB subscription will be a nice little treat to keep in mind.
