Mailbox Monday

Only two books actually arrived in my mailbox last week, but I scored at the Rose City Used Book Fair. Since Mailbox Monday asks, "What books came to your house last week?" I will include them all. Here's the list: The Mermaid and the Messerschmitt by Rulka Langer (an upcoming reissue of this "war through a woman's eyes" WWII memoir) The Evolution of Shadows by Jason Quinn Malott (a novel about the Bosnian war) The Mansion by William Faulkner (a first edition not in particularly good shape) Recapitulation by Wallace Stegner (a first edition in very good shape) Selected Short Stories by John O'Hara (a Modern Library edition with a pristine dust jacket -- cool!) Ricochet River by Robin Cody (a first edition of an Oregon classic) Chantecler by Edmond Rostand (a 1910 play about a rooster, from what I can tell -- I bought it for the terrific rooster on the cover and wish I could find a picture)
