To the Reader

New books, important this winter, submit without the expectation of payment, except, occasionally, in comments.

Neither time nor space is undertaken imperfectly without capital.

But the opportunity suggests all the books of the season have made the project possible, have supplied their reviews and their time on short notice.

This issue of some books temporarily demands a need to hope, to discover, to take, and to pretend.

Pay the editors entirely, however.

Created from the editors' letter "To the Reader," The New York Review of Books, vol. 1, no. 1, Feb. 1, 1963.
