Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
I got two books last week, and both intrigue me:
Cabal by Michael Dibdin. I've never read one of Dibdin's mysteries featuring police detective Aurelio Zen, but I saw the short BBC series starring Rufus Sewell in the lead role and am looking forward to trying the books. Cabal isn't the first in the series but I found it at a Little Free Library in my neighborhood so I thought I'd give it a try.
The Fox Was Ever the Hunter by Herta Müller, translated by Philip Boehm. Müller won 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature. This is the new release of her 1992 novel about Romania in the last months of the Ceausescu regime. Mine is an early review copy from LibraryThing and the book is available for pre-order for its May 10 release.
