Although I'm not making a lot of progress reading-wise this month, I'm still acquiring books at a steady clip.
Three books influenced by the recent Persephone week and my first ever Persephone catalog: Mathilde Wolff-Munckberg's On the Other Side (in a cheapo used mass paperback edition); Penelope Mortimer's Daddy's Gone A-Hunting; and Susan Glaspell's Fidelity.
Just out in paperback, Adam Foulds' The Quickening Maze.
Dezso Kosztolanyk's Skylark.
The Essential Rebecca West. Uncollected prose: seven essays, fifteen book reviews. I think a volume of all of West's uncollected book reviews much more essential than this skimpy offering, but obviously, I'm going to snatch up whatever's out there.
Forrest Gander's A Faithful Existence. Essays.
Jonathan Dee's The Privileges. From the new book exchange in the staff lounge.
Tom Rachman's The Imperfectionists. I do believe the buzz, I do, I do.
Jane Smiley's Private Life. I've already read this and I liked it very much.
Michael Crummey's Galore. It's autographed! And I think it won an award, too, but I bought it because it's been highly touted at Book Balloon.
