Before we had Stephenie Meyer and Suzanne Collins, we had Judy Blume and Paula Danziger, writers whose books made a generation of young girls feel like they belonged. (And that they must, they must, they must increase their bust.)
Author and blogger Lizzie Skurnick grew up on such books--she actually founded the beloved YA-focused Jezebel column ?Fine Lines." But in recent years, she was saddened to learn that many of her childhood favorites had since gone out of print.
Not one to be deterred, the industrious lit darling founded a publishing imprint dedicated to bringing them back to the book-buying public.
Lizzie Skurnick Books officially launches at the end of August and will publish one title a month, from the classics of the ?30s and ?40s to the comedies and thrillers of the ?70s and ?80s.
First up is Lois Duncan?s oft-forgotten first novel, Debutante Hill, which includes an original introduction by the prolific author herself. (PS: Remember how good Stranger with My Face was?)
Skurnick says she already has 65 reissues under contract, and you can subscribe now to get them delivered as they?re published ($120 for 12 books).
Are you there, God? It?s us...and we?re crazy pumped.
