New edition of Bartlett's Familiar Quotations to include two by Russell Hoban

The forthcoming edition of Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is set to quote Russell Hoban for the first time.

Quotations from Hoban's novels The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz and Pilgermann will appear in the eighteenth edition of Bartlett's, the first new edition since 2003, which is due to be published on 30 October 2012.

The latest compendium was copy-edited for Little, Brown & Co by Kathryn Rogers, whose Texas-based puppet theatre company Trouble Puppet staged an adaptation of Hoban's classic novel Riddley Walker in 2011. Kathryn helped choose some of the entries new to this edition.

The new edition of Bartlett's is currently available on pre-order from at a substantial discount.

More quotations from Russell Hoban's books can be found at the SA4QE website.
