The sixteenth issue of The Happy Reader, the bookish bi-annual published by Penguin Classics in collaboration with Fantastic Man For avid readers and the uninitiated alike, this is a chance to reengage with classic literature and to stay inspired and entertained. The concept of the magazine is simple- the first half is a long-form interview with a notable book fanatic and the second half explores one classic work of literature from an array of surprising and invigorating angles. The Happy Reader 16's cover star is Moses Sumney, interviewed by Jia Tolentino. Our book of the season is Madonna in a Fur Coat by Sabahattin Ali.
