The Mobile Library: Mr. Dixon Disappears by Ian Sansom: A British mystery series. This is #2 in the series. I’ll need to track down #1. The library doesn’t have them. *frown*
Memories of A Catholic Girlhood by Mary McCarthy: This has been on my mental TBR list for forever, since I read an excerpt of it in a book of biographies of famous women
In The Woods by Tana French: Someone in my scifi-book group recomended this awhile back. It’s an Irish mystery. I normally don’t buy hardbacks, but this one was only $5.98 and the page edges are black, which makes for a pretty effect. I think this must be the U.K. edition.
Politics and Prose Member’s Sale Last Weekend
Trans-Sister Radio by Chris Bohjalian: A GLBT lit classic (was in the remainder section)
Tinkers by Paul Harding: 2010 Pulitizer Prize for Fiction
Mystery Mile by Margery Allingham: Albert Campion Mysteries #2 (I’ve gotten a few of these off bookmooch, now I just need #1 in order to start digging into the series..yes I like reading mystery series from the beginning)
Look to the Lady by Margery Allingham: Albert Campion Mysteries #3 (the covers on the new editions are also gorgeous)
Tattoo: A Pepe Carvahlo Mystery by Manuel Montalban: Another mystery series that caught my eye…
Christina Falls by Benjamin Black (Pseudonym of John Barnville): Another Irish mystery series. One of the review quotes on the inside cover caught my eye…”The plot is as thick and dark as a bottomless pint of Guinness.” It has to be good, right?
Other Politics and Prose:
Soccer in Sun and Shadow by Eduardo Galeano: Yay World Cup 2010!
