Virago Modern Classics Book Club


‘I read my first Virago Modern Classic novel at age eighteen; I read my latest last week. For the thirty-odd years in between, the VMCs have been wowing me, inspiring me, making me laugh, cry, wonder and think. The list contains some of the greatest fiction and non-fiction of the modern age, by authors whose lives were frequently as significant as their writing. Still captivating, still memorable, still utterly essential reading.’
