Lots of new books this week!
A bunch of these were waiting for me at work and had been there for a week or two. I don't get in often over the summer.
Anyhoo, on with the show.
Slumberland, by Paul Beatty, came courtesy of LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program.
Luis Leante's See How Much I Love You came unsolicited from the publisher, and is officially my first 2010 release.
I picked up a used copy of Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake at the Harvard Book Store because I just finished her latest, The Year of the Flood, which takes place in the same dystopian world and so now I need to catch up.
How to Paint a Dead Man, by Sarah Hall and longlisted for this year's Man Booker Prize, came courtesy of HarperCollins. Thank you! I've started it already and it's characteristically very good. Sarah Hall is an accomplished writer of literary fiction.
Chronic City, Jonathan Lethem's latest, came from Random House.
And finally Macmillan contributed Blame, by Michelle Huneven, and the graphic novel adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic Fahrenheit 451 to my to-be-read pile. Thank you!
I have lots of great reading ahead!
