The New Haven Review is proud to offer its first three books for sale, by Rudolph Delson, Charles Douthat, and Gregory Feeley. We have published each of these writers previously, and admire their work immensely. Each volume is available as a high-quality trade paperback, and will be available soonish as an e-book, once we figure out how to make our e-books look really nice. Because we know you care about things like that.

Feeley, a New Haven-area writer, is the author of several novellas, most recently .
