Donald Books Launches

Welcome to Donald Books, home to "vintage reading" and more. We are a small independent imprint that believes there are good books and stories to be found in unlikely places.


Our first book is out now. THE LOST ALGONQUIN ROUND TABLE is a 300-page collection of pieces written by America's greatest literary celebrities: the Vicious Circle. THE LOST ALGONQUIN ROUND TABLE presents humor, verse, criticism, short fiction and journalism. Among the writers in the book are Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman. Donald Books is proud to present several unpublished pieces that came from private collections of descendants of the Round Table.

We will be expanding the line in 2009-2010 to include more books. If you have questions or comments, please contact us.
