Monday Mailbox #20

Sorry this is kind of late. I had to work today (grr Labor Day) and, surprise surprise, I managed to wake up late instead of early, when I was going to write this originally. Bah. Anyway. This month, Monday Mailbox is hosted by Amused by Books and I've got two books this week - and one of them, a repeat customer!

Firstly, someone at Viking sent me a second copy of William Kennedy's forthcoming Chang√≥'s Beads and Two-Tone Shoes which has this gorgeous cover on it. So now I have a covered one AND a galley copy. What-a-to-do. Not sure what I'm going to do with the second copy just yet. We'll see.

And secondly, I received an unsolicited copy of Trevor Shane's forthcoming Children of Paranoia, which comes out this week, from Dutton. This is Shane's debut novel, about a secret underground war. According to the information I could find, this is meant to be the beginning of a trilogy. Shane is a local author from Brooklyn and he'll be discussing the book at Book Court in Brooklyn this Thursday - check it out.
