Mailbox Monday

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at A girl and her books (fka The Printed Page), who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit is hosting in October.  Please go by and visit her wonderful blog. 

Thanks to a stop by my favorite Second Glance bookstore, I have a big stack of new (to me) books, most of them on one or another of my book lists:

The Mandelbaum Gate by Muriel Spark (on the Burgess list)

The Transit of Venus by Shirley Hazzard (winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and on the BOMC's Well-Stocked Bookcase list)

Dog Soldiers by Robert Stone (winner of the National Book Award and on the All-TIME Top 100 list)

Monsieur: Or, The Prince of Darkness by Lawrence Durrell (the first book of The Avignon quintet and winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize)

Bitter Lemons by Lawrence Durrell (not on a list, but I loved the cover)

The Best of Friends by Joanna Trollope (not on a list, but I am on a Joanna Trollope jag)
