Penguin Classics: Mini Moderns

A quick literary hit, a satisfying shot of storytelling from the greatest writers of the last 100 years. Introducing—Mini Modern Classics

In May 2011, to celebrate half a century of publishing the very best, Penguin launched a permanent brand new series: the Mini Moderns. The ultimate in short stories and novellas, and perfect for a fact fiction fix, the Mini Moderns will surprise with little known masterpieces from some of greatest Penguin Modern Classic authors, from Joseph Conrad, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Rudyard Kipling to William Trevor, Saul Bellow and Virginia Woolf.

Priced at just $4.99 each, the Mini Moderns serve up a quick literary hit, capturing outstanding writers in convenient, pocked-sized (just bigger than a postcard) and pocket-money priced editions. A satisfying shot of storytelling, the Mini Moderns will give readers an intense, powerful and essential taste of the writers who have left an indelible imprint on everything we read.
