Happy Birthday Esther Averill
Today is the centenary of Esther Averill’s birthday! We’ve re-issued seven of her shy, red scarf-wearing, black cat Jenny Linsky books, and they are both treasured favorites for those who read them as children and new joys for first time readers. If you’re lonely in the West Village don’t worry, Jenny has been there before.
My favorite childhood books! My copies were printed by Harper & Row in the 1970s. I’m happy NYRB is bringing them back.
