This week, some oldies and some slightly younger oldies.
Of Mice and Men,
by John Steinbeck
An oldie, but a goodie. If you like that kind of thing.
I happen to love Steinbeck's tragic way with words.
Tales of the Islanders,
by Charlotte Brontë
The fourth volume in the Hesperus Press's collection
of Charlotte Brontë's juvenilia.
Islands in the Stream,
by Ernest Heminway
As in the edition seen here, my copy says
"the new novel by Ernest Hemingway" which,
considering he's been dead for 50 years next month,
is kind of hilarious.
Let's Take the Long Way Home,
by Gail Caldwell
From the office's lending library. Expect tears.
The Siege of Krishnapur,
by J. G. Farrell
An NYRB classic from 2004,
originally published in 1973.
