What's New On the Shelf 1/24

I bought- and read- Lydia Millet's wonderful Magnificence this week. I loved it! I'll tell you more about it soon and I'll be on the Literary New England Radio Show talking about it soon too!

I finally picked up Liz Moore's Heft this week. I've been eyeing this book ever since seeing the author read from it last spring. It sounds so good.

S is for Stitch is an adorable stitchery book. It's an updated ABC book with cute patterns and great ideas for putting them together. I can't wait to start working on a project! The author is Kristyne Czepuryk and you can see her website at prettybyhand.com.

Finally, Ludmila Petrushevskaya's new collection of short stories came in the mail for me to read. It's called There Once Lived A Girl Who Seduced Her Sister's Husband and He Hanged Himself. I love her stories- dark and disturbed for sure but always wonderful.

What new on your shelf this week?
