Volume 3 brings to life the literature of the end of the 20th century and the start of the 21st, including a Sherlock Holmes mystery; an H.G. Wells story; an illustrated guide to the Beat writers; a one-act play from Zora Neale Hurston; Anaïs Nin's diaries; and the postmodernism of Thomas Pynchon, David Foster Wallace, Kathy Acker, Raymond Carver, and Donald Barthelme; the towering works of modernism are here: Eliot, Yeats, Conrad, Kafka, Woolf, Joyce, Faulkner, Hemingway, Stein, and Millay; original comic versions of short stories by Maugham, O'Connor, and Saki (manga style), plus adaptations of Lolita (and everyone said it couldn't be done!); photo-dioramas for Animal Farm and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; new full-page illustrations for 1984, Brave New World, Waiting for Godot, One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Bell Jar, On the Road, Lord of the Flies, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and three Borges stories. Robert Crumb's rarely seen adaptation of Nausea captures Sartre's existential dread. Dame Darcy illustrates Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece, Blood Meridian, universally considered one of the most brutal novels ever written and long regarded as unfilmable by Hollywood. Tara Seibel, the only female artist involved with the Harvey Pekar Project, turns in an exquisite series of illustrations for The Great Gatsby. Among many other gems.
