Product Information

"The Charterhouse of Parma has never sparkled in English with such radiance as it does in Richard Howard's new translation."--Edmund White "[A] superb new translation."--Bernard Knox, The New York Review of Books "An epic tale of war, love, sex, politics, and action-packed narrative."--The New Yorker

The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House rede-signed the series, restoring as its emblem the running torchbearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.
