On Feb. 9, the hardcover of Iain Pears’ ARCADIA will be released. Critic L. Shapley Bassen discusses this fascinating saga in a new review:
ARCADIA is Faber & Faber’s first novel to have been written primarily with digital readers in mind. The British publishers believe it to be the first book of its kind in existence. Shortly after its iPad appearance, the 596-page hardback was published last September 3rd (UK). This February, 2016, Knopf presents a 528-page US edition. “While the hardback is 180,000 words, the app comes to 250,000, offering additional stories and expanding those told in the hardback.”
