Virago Modern Classics' Coming of Age Collection

Following on from Virago Press much-loved limited-edition hardbacks of favourites such as Excellent Women, Valley of the Dolls, The Enchanted April and The Dud Avocado, Virago Press created a unique new set of hardbacks – six modern classic coming-of-age stories, for adult and young adult readers alike, with stunning interconnecting artwork by New York illustrator Mira Nameth. Each has been selected for its striking depiction of a time, a place and a young woman on the cusp of adulthood.

Invitation to the Waltz and My Brilliant Career are perennial, much-loved Virago Modern Classics. Slammerkin, Tipping the Velvet and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings are proudly published by Virago Press. And with the little gem that is The River, Virago press is thrilled to launch their publishing of Rumer Godden, a new addition to the Virago Modern Classics.
