I was so excited to receive a copy of Cartwheel by Jennifer duBois from Scribe Publications who have the UK and Commonwealth rights. I was in awe of duBois’ writing in her debut A Partial History of Lost Causes – it was one of my Best Books of 2012 – so I cannot wait to dive into more of her wonderful prose… Of note is how different this cover art is from the US edition …

I purchased The Old Child and The Book of Words by Jenny Erpenbeck to read for German Literature Month in November.

I received a review copy of The Blind Masseuse by Alden Jones – a travel memoir that considers ‘Is there a right or wrong way to travel?’ being published by University of Wisconsin Press.
