Friday Finds- Long Overdue!

What's even more overdue is a vlog, and I hope to do another one of those soon. In the mean time here's a few of the books that have come my way over the last two weeks.
Zulu, by Caryl Ferey, is a prize-winning thriller set in South Africa. I won it from a Facebook giveaway by the wonderful Europa Editions. Thanks EE!
Alfred and Guinevere, by James Schuyler, is about two children; I found it at a local used bookstore.
No Angel is Jay Dobyns' memoir of being an undercover Federal officer in the Hell's Angels. I can't wait to read this!
Your Voice in My Head, by Emma Forrest, is a great-looking memoir sent to me for review by the also-awesome Other Press. Thanks OP- love you guys!
Jean Thompson's The Year We Left Home came for review as well. What sold me on it was that apparently David Sedaris is a fan of hers. That has to be a good thing!

That's it for me. I'll be back next week with more Finds. In the mean time I hope those who celebrate it have a great Easter. What's new on your shelf this week?

I will also be reading The Year We Left Home, and am really excited about it. All the others are new to me, and I am anxious to hear what you think about them all.

I think I saw a show about the author of No Angel. If it is the same guy I am thinking about the story was so interesting and the book is bound to be really good.

No Angel is excellent. I really enjoyed it and passed it along to my cousin in law who is an auto mechanic. At first he was dubious that I'd be give him a book that I liked that he'd also enjoy, but he did really like it too.
