I want to thank everyone for their feedback on Releases Episode 1, an experiment that I enjoyed. While Episode 2 is still called Releases (does anyone have a better name?), this episode should be familiar to those of you who have listened to Brian and I talk about NYRB Classics’ forthcoming slate. This week we did our semi-annual episode, talking about what NYRB Classics is releasing in the first half of 2015.

In the podcast, I bring up a GoodReads page that I keep current that lists the forthcoming NYRB Classics books and links to discussion pages about each book. You can find that here.

Here are the books we talk about (remember, these publication dates can change):
