Javier Marias's Publishing Venture

Literary Saloon pointed us to this El Pais article entitled “Esta absurda aventura” (This Absurd Adventure) about Javier Marias’s Reino de Redonda publishing house.

(For non-Marias fans, here’s a short history of the Kingdom of Redonda and Marias’s ties to it. It really is a fun story and cool idea.)

He’s publishing two or three books a year under this venture, mainly lost classics (including a number of books by Redonda founder M.P. Sheil), which, unfortunately (although not much of a surprise), aren’t selling that well. Most titles are in the 1,000 copy range . . .
