FIXING THE WORST MOVIE ADAPTATION EVER: PERCY JACKSON // By the Book: Episode 4
Does the Faber name still mean much?
One of the most appealing book releases so far this year has to be Faber's box set of great debuts, the Faber Firsts collection, whose beautiful covers and impressive contents are putting other publications to shame in bookshops around the country. Indeed, as much as a celebration of the company's 80th year, the set comes across as a statement of power:. Nearly all of the books are established classics — and nearly all the authors established talents. Some might even be called greats. Better still, these are writers that people enjoy as well as admire. The ones I haven't, I feel I should — as much out of genuine interest as an aspiring reviewer's sense of duty. So Faber are pinning a flag of first ownership on some enviable literary territory.
