The Reader Who's Read It All
For the avid-reader, books can be the best and worst present to shop for. Become a legendary rare book-dealer in their eyes by producing The Last Samurai by Helen DeWitt. Definitely not the Tom Cruise period drama, this book is an original, witty and timeless novel about the nature of genius. Championed by Mark Haddon, adored by A.S. Byatt and heralded as the unsung hero of the twentieth century, it’s the undiscovered classic that’s recently been put back in print by VINTAGE after almost a decade out of print. If they already own it, we’ll eat our hats.
