What's New on the Shelf?

I added a couple of new things to the TBR pile this week.

I got Hanif Kureishi's The Buddha of Suburbia, finally. I tried to read it a few years ago but gave up on it for some reason. We were planning a trip to London that ended up falling through, and the travel guide suggested this as a kind of classic about the city. I'll give it another try this summer.

Also added to the summer reading pile is Michael Frayn's Booker-nominated Skios, a farce comedy set in Greece. I seem to be reading a lot about Greece lately! Anyway I'm looking forward to a little literary light-heartedness on the beach with this one.

That's it! What's new on your shelf this week?
