Of course I brought some books to read- I'm still deep into Little, Big, by John Crowley, which I'm enjoying and coincidentally reading a section about Christmas in Edgewood. This book is wonderful and strange. I can't wait to see where it goes.
Coming up this week on the blog, I have three-part Publisher Spotlight series on the Dalkey Archive Press, a small publisher of translated literary fiction. Their books are really idiosyncratic and unusual, and I hope you enjoy the interview I have with John O'Brien, their director. I will also have reviews of two of their recent books, The Truth About Marie and The Faster I Walk, The Smaller I Am.
Finally, I have a little Christmas gift for you. Somehow I got the idea to do this, then sent an email to Mr. Mieville to get his permission to post it, which he kindly gave me. Enjoy!
