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.

The Latin American Mixtape

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.
