This week was a great one!
I got a shout-out from Trapdoor Books for my review on their debut release, David Michie's The Magician of Lhasa. And Michie left a very nice comment saying that my review was the first one out and that he was very pleased with it.
My review for Gert Jonke's The System of Vienna was published by The Front Table on Wednesday.
I finally finished my review for The Wall in My Head.
I'm currently in the middle of Roberto Bolaño's The Savage Detectives, which is starting to drag. It started out great but now it's just a bunch of random people talking about these two guys running around trying to start a poetry movement called "visceral realism." I'm not giving up on it but I sure hope it picks up again.
I've also gotten an early Christmas present:
A coffee table book called Art Deco: The Golden Age of Graphic Art & Illustration. I'm not allowed to actually have it until Christmas Eve, but I'll be sure to post my favorite pictures as soon as I get through it.
I've also distributed my Amazon wish list so hopefully I'll be getting some great books!
