Friday Finds- A Stack and an e-Book

In the stack we have:
Stempenyu: A Jewish Romance, by Sholem Aleichem,
In a Free State, a Booker Prize winner by V.S.Naipaul, both from my trip to Raven Used Books. I love that place; it's a little basement used bookstore but it's like the TBR pile I haven't brought home yet.

A quick trip to Million Year Picnic, a favorite comics store, yielded three great comics by women:
Mercury, by Hope Larson,
Robot Dreams, by Sara Varon, and
A Mess of Everything, by Miss Lasko-Gross. I was a fan of her last book, Escape from Special; this is the sequel.

Beaufort, by Ron Leshem, about the Israeli Army, An American Type, by Henry Roth, and In the Company of Angels, by Thomas E. Kennedy, came via Bookmooch.

My friends at Random House were nice enough to send me an advance copy of Gary Shteyngart's new book, Super Sad True Love Story, coming out in July. Thank you!

The e-book? Dmitry Zlotsky's Monster: Oil on Canvas, a truly strange comic novel about conjoined twins and the woman they love, an orphan with two hearts. I have to finish that one in the next week or so, so you'll have the review soon. I can't wait to tell you more.
