DescriptionPraised by great writers from Flannery O'Conner to Jonathan Lethem, Miss Lonelyhearts is an American classic. A newspaper reporter assigned to write the agony column in the depths of the Great Depression seeks respite from the poor souls who send in their sad letters, only to be further tormented by his viciously cynical editor, Shrike. This single volume of Miss Lonelyhearts features its original Alvin Lustig jacket design, as well as a new introduction by Harold Bloom, who calls it "my favorite work of modern American fiction."

About the Author
Nathanael West (1903-40) was also the author of The Day of the Locust.
The Sterling Professor of Humanities at Yale University, Harold Bloom (b. 1930) has been hailed as "one of our greatest living literary critics" (Los Angeles Times).
In dark times, Miss Lonelyhearts shines the brightest light in the blackest places. For this reason West s novel has never felt more alive than today. --Nathaniel Rich
