So Many Books, So Little Time: Recent Books Acquisitions

From Daedalus Books

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!
