This is a collection of forewords to Folio Society editions of classic works. "In this collection, fifteen of today's finest writers introduce books which hold enormous significance for them - and although some of the choices might at first seem surprising, all are eminently fitting. The themes are eternal - war, power, love, childhood, nostalgia, heroes and anti-heroes, the influence of travel and experience of differing cultures, the circumlocutions of the human brain and the arguably greater complexities of the human heart.
Beautifully crafted, imaginative editions of the world’s great works of fiction and non-fiction, Folio Society books offer a rich literary experience to readers of all ages. The books selected for publication are timeless – they will be enjoyed and appreciated now and in the future. Because each book is considered as an individual object of value in its own right, there is a variety to our aesthetic – the only uniformity is in the quality of every single book.
