The Art of the Novella Subscription Series


Forget magazines—for a small subscription fee, Melville House will send you two novellas every month in whatever format you prefer.

It’s the perfect way to finally get around to reading classics like Gustave Flaubert’s A Simple Heart and Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich.

Also there are five novellas called The Duel, so if you’re into duels, you have a pretty high chance of getting one of those at some point.
