My library's semi-annual book sale was last night, and I did pretty well! The five titles that I'm most excited about are:
What is the What I sort of want to read everything Eggers has ever written. That will be very difficult since he has written so much outside of the typical novel format.
Fountain City, I'm back! I also picked up The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Chabon.
The Little Stranger by Waters, so I am interested to read this one too. In searching for information about TLS online, I stumbled onto some reviews that seemed to imply that Waters is a lesbian author, meaning an author writing for lesbians, regardless of the author's personal preferences. Velvet has two naked girls on the cover, and the summary says that it is the story of one falling in love with the other. I guess we'll see how it goes! I finally got a copy of The Little Stranger too.
historical junk food.
I also picked up The True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey, since I liked Parrot and Olivier in America by that author, People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks, since I seem to talk about that book constantly, Three Junes by Julia Glass, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford, That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo, and I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley.
Now it is clear that if there is an epidemic affecting Beverly Hills, Michigan, so that we cannot leave our home for a month, or six, I will not run out of books to read. Hopefully someone will deliver food.
