About this title


Author of the immensely popular children’s books featuring Frances the Badger, Russell Hoban is also a master of contemporary imaginative literary forms, including the cult classic Riddley Walker.

Gathered here are four of Mr. Hoban’s novels: the haunting Lion of Boaz-Jachin, the popular Turtle Diary (made into a movie startting Glenda Jackson and Ben Kingsley), Pilgermann, and his newest work, the sharp and witty Mr. Rinyo-Clacton’s Offer, published here for the first time in North America. In addition, the collection includes samples from Mr. Hoban’s short stories, essays, and poetry. Finally, for true Hoban aficionados, there is part of an unfinished sequel to the adult children’s classic The Mouse and His Child, featuring the further adventures of Manny Rat.

About the Author:

Born in 1925 in Pennsylvania, Russell Hoban was an illustrator before becoming a writer. He has written many books for children. His adult novels, besides those included in this volume, are Riddley Walker, The Medusa Frequency, Fremder, and Kleinzeit.
