Algonquin sent me a nice hardcover copy of A Reliable Wife- I've seen it around and I'm looking forward to it.
Macmillan sent me the very appealing Doghead, which I'm dying to read. It's about a dysfunctional Scandinavian family and I think I'm going to like it a lot.
I won Futureproof in a HarperCollins giveaway; it looks really awesome.
Finally, I was extremely lucky- and quick to post a comment on a blog- and won a giveaway of a galley of China Mieville's new book, coming out in late May, The City and The City. A local indie bookstore, Brookline Booksmith, had one galley to give out. If you're not familiar with Mieville, he is a San Francisco-based science fiction/urban fantasy writer. My husband, a serious scifi reader, noticed his books for the first time when we were in San Fran this past summer and has become a big fan. He will be reading the book and posting a guest review here when he's done. I can't wait to know what he thinks. I have a feeling that I may end up reading it too!
What's your favorite new find this week?
