Mailbox Monday!

So many great new books have come in over the past couple of weeks!
The PEN-award winning Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self, stories by Danielle Evans, came in for review. I've heard so many great things about this that I can't wait to dive in.
Nom de Plum: A (Secret) History of Pseudonyms, by Carmela Ciuraru, came in anticipation of Ciuraru's Porter Square Books event, which I'm participating in, August 25 at 7 p.m. I would love to see you there!
Elif Batuman's acclaimed The Possessed: Adventures with Russian Books and the People Who Read Them was a used bookstore find. I've been meaning to get this forever so I was very happy to find this at the wonderful Lorem Ipsum Books in Cambridge.

And more! Weeding books makes me feel like I can buy more. It's a vicious bookish cycle but what can I do?
