Friday Finds- Will It Ever End?

Empire of the Summer Moon, by S.C.Gwynne, is about the history of the Comanche Native American tribe. After reading Dee Brown's masterful Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, I was attracted to this new, acclaimed book about Native Americans.
The Murderess, by Alexandros Papadiamantis, is about an old woman on a small Greek island. It's a small book but it looks really great. Part of the problem I'm having is that there's almost no difference between doing my job and shopping for books all day. I found this while straightening shelves in the NYRB Classics section.
The Tennis Partner, by Abraham Verghese, is his memoir about a close friend who died. I had to round out my collection of Verghese books- and now I should actually read them!

That's it for me!  What did you add to your TBR pile this week? More Friday Finds at
