"Fearless snake killing motherfucker"
Can you tell we’re excited for our event with Janice Clark on Thursday?! Full details here.
A couple links for your Sunday reading:
For more Marías, well, we’ve got pretty much everything in English in-store and the Threepenny’s archive has a number of his essays available. But, since you don’t want to be a freeloader, definitely get a subscription. The Threepenny is one of the best quarterlies/reviews/things around and we would very much like it to stick around.
A few of the new titles to hit our hardcover table today: Magnificent Principia, Salinger, For Discrimination, MaddAddam, The Childhood of Jesus (and lots, lots more). Bonus points for the partially hidden titles (I mean, not really, but you know).
13 songs to assuage or amplify your end-of-summertime blues. if this indie-rock/’80s medley gets you in the mood for some related reading, we might recommend “Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo & the Rise of Indie Rock” by Jesse Jarrow and “My 1980s & Other Essays” by Wayne Koestenbaum (Debbie Harry ON THE COVER), both on our shelves now! Happy holiday, and see you when we re-open tomorrow!
