Belgian fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg is the cover star and interviewee in the latest Happy Reader. Chatting to Happy Reader editor Seb Emina, she talks handwritten letters, jigsaw puzzles, Austrian novelist Stefan Zweig, and a fascination with Venice.
The Book of the Season is Nella Larsen’s Passing, now considered one of the greatest books of the Harlem Renaissance.
A quarterly dip into bookish waters. The Happy Reader, a collaboration between Fantastic Man and Penguin Books, is one half in-depth interview with a book fanatic and one half a rediscovery of a Penguin Classic.
