Winter is the season traditionally beloved of voracious readers, where each shorter day seems to suggest an evening spent curled up by the fire with a good book. It is celebrated here in a special collection that features extracts from novels, memoirs and diaries, as well as poetry and letters.

With contributions by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, George Eliot, Robert Frost, Thomas Hardy, James Joyce, Nancy Mitford, George Orwell, William Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, Walt Whitman ...
