Book burning is a practice that hasn’t disappeared with time. Everything from the Bible to Fifty Shades of Grey has been publicly torched since the turn of the millenium — and many book burnings have taken place right here in the United States, where it remains perfectly legal.

Each little book in the Penguin Modern series offers a concentrated hit of its author’s work.

For a writer like me, who enjoys evoking the senses of her readers, it is a dream come true, and I sincerely hope that I have managed to do it justice.
