10 from Dalkey’s sale including 3 by Shklovsky, Maidenhair, The Canvas, My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgaard, Almost Never by Sada. A good Xmas, to be sure.

Hope to pick up the Knausgaard soon, but until then resting on a lovely pile of new Ian McEwan and used-but-rare Donald Hall. I think the first book of the new year will be Alice Munro’s newest; I can’t wait for every word of it.


The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
