Friday Finds- Some Common Themes

Four new finds this week, all of them terrific.

In a Dark Wood, by Marcel Möring, is one I've had my eye on for a while and finally I decided to pick it up. It's a post-Holocaust novel set in Holland and loosely based on Dante's Inferno.

The rest are two post-Soviet novels and one volume of post-Soviet short stories. The novels are The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight and Broken Glass Park, both of which I received for review, and the short stories come in Katherine Shonk's book The Red Passport. Obviously the first two will take priority but I'm looking forward to all of them. And after reading some stories and weeding some books last weekend, I feel entirely justified in having bought (remaindered) another volume of stories.
