I picked up Oil on Water, by Helon Habila, and Speak, Memory, by Vladimir Nabokov when I was out with Dawn and Sandy last Friday, at Trident Books and Raven Used Books, respectively. I've always meant to read Speak, Memory, Nabokov's autobiography, and Dawn made Oil on Water sound fantastic. Book pusher! Dawn also gave me a galley of Stephen Kellman's Pigeon English, shortlisted for the Booker Prize. I hope it wins so I can have the galley for my collection!
I got The Book of Disquiet, by Fernando Pessoa, after reading about him in Carmela Ciuraru's wonderful Nom de Plume: A (Secret) History of Pseudonyms. It's different- more of a series of reflections than a story per se. But I like it.
