The Happy Reader, summer 2017

Penguin Books

€4.00
Issue 9’s Book of the Season is the somewhat boyish but universally cherished TREASURE ISLAND, which gives rise to curious news from the parrot world, a conversation with a sing-along genius (Andy Partridge from XTC), and in-depth reporting of the worldwide electoral surge of pirate political parties.

Our cover star is a model who owns a bookshop. A movie actress who put it all on hold to clinch an art history degree.

Yes, it’s LILY COLE. For every ounce – and there are many ounces – of celebrity possessed by the new cover star, there is at least one equal measure of bookishness. Photographed here by Wolfgang Tillmans and interviewed by Penny Martin, Lily discusses an array of amazing authors from Maggie Nelson to Vladimir Nabokov.
