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.
