Read all about it! Nightmare on Wall Street

Dubbed "a magnificent frolic" by JB Priestly, Juan in America is one of the four new titles to grace the shelves of the Capuchin Classics library this October. 

Eric Linklater's witty and original prophesy of the great Wall Street Crash of '29, is a remarkable and entertaining account of a society unwittingly on the brink of a slump. Readers of Juan in America, will discover uncanny similarities with the current Nightmare on Wall Street. 

The Capuchin team are also glad to announce that our foreword writer, Alex Linklater, is appearing on Radio 4's Open Book programme for a discussion of his grandfather, Eric Linklater, and how Juan in America came about. Catch it on Sunday the 19th, or when repeated on Thursday the 23rd of October (both broadcast at 4.00pm-4.30pm).
