Traveling soon? Melville House Press has released a bunch of classic novellas
--everything from Kipling to Edith Wharton to Tolstoy's The Devil
(sexy and tormented), to Stevenson's The Beach at Falsea
(worth reading just for the narrator's idioms). The novella remains an art form not well supported by commercial publishers, and most of these were controversial in their time. Plus, they're nice to hold and perfect for slipping into a carry-on.
