Clementine Classics, a new series from Black Balloon Publishing, gives classic works of literature the contemporary annotations they deserve. Obsessed, possessed, and thoroughly distressed by the originals, today's writers riff, rant, praise, and flay these old books, giving them new life. The series' beautifully designed e-books are both an act of sincere literary criticism and a new, composite form of humor writing.
The first book in the series, Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser, is annotated by beloved (and highly caustic) critic, Clementine the Hedgehog—the series' namesake and its guiding spirit.
About Clementine Classics: Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser
Sometimes reading the classics is a chore, but not so with the snarky annotations by Clementine the Hedgehog. Having made her debut as a weekly book reviewer of note on Tumblr in 2012, Clem now takes on Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser. On each page, she inserts her keen insights, dark sense of humor, and cut-the-crap commentary, crafting a 21st-century literary criticism for distraction addicts everywhere.
Clementine Classics: Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser will be produced in two formats: a standard reflowable edition for e-readers, and a custom iBooks edition for the iPad (available in the iBookstore only). Both formats feature an innovative display layout that takes full advantage of the digital medium and allows Clementine's annotations to live alongside Dreiser's original text.
Below you may purchase either an ePub for your Nook, Kobo, or other e-reader, or a .mobi Kindle-compatible file. iPad edition is only sold in the iBookstore.
