A handful of classics

So here we are. Ansky is already more than a blog. Now it’s also a vinyl in the Nollegiu bookstore showcase and a handful of classics in a bookshelf inside the shop. Come in!

These are the proposed titles to be the classics. They are, in any case, my classics. Some of the books that brought me here and made me see things the way I see them now. They are chronologically ordered by year of publication.
