This is absolutely a New Directions book, and we think those of you who’ve fallen in love with Javier Marías or Roberto Bolaño or László Krasznahorkai as much as we did will agree. Wholeheartedly.
— New Directions really knows how to make a book sound enticing! (via millionsmillions)

They better not make it sound TOO good, or people will just order the British version from Amazon’s marketplace. I wish they could push it out a bit faster than September.

I was feeling all mulligrubs but this larruping collection of words gave me a lump in my goozle pipes.

I may have to pungle down the money to get these books. I believe the latest volume is S through Izzard.

Text 7 Dec December is for Dalkey

God, or the Mayas, really wants you to stock up on Dalkey Archive books apparently. Dalkey is running its 10 books for $65 sale on its website and Amazon slashed half of Dalkey’s 2012 releases to $2 each.

I may or may not have 17 Dalkey Archive books arriving at my house in the next few days. I tell myself it’s okay because it only cost $80.00.
