Review – The Berkshire Edge

Exciting to see a review of the book in The Berkshire Edge today !

This book will be exchanged and borrowed and talked about in reading circles and college literature departments for its empowering access to world literature, for its resourcefulness, and for opening the doors to literature from anywhere in the world

So isn’t it time you got your copy ?
