Upcoming books

I rarely have many new books in my 'to be read' stack so I had to commemorate this occasion. You'll be seeing these titles over the next several weeks, here and elsewhere.

The Expedition to the Baobab Tree by Wilma Stockenström, translated by J. M. Coetzee (Archipelago Books)

Harlequin's Millions by Bohumil Hrabal, translated by Stacey Knecht (Archipelago Books)

Rambling on: An Apprentice's Guide to the Gift of the Gab by Bohumil Hrabal, translated by David Short (Karolinum Press, Charles University)

Dying Every Day: Seneca at the Court of Nero by James Romm (Alfred A. Knopf)

Leg over Leg (Volume One) by Fāris al-Shidyāq, edited and translated by Humphrey Davies (New York University Press—Library of Arabic Literature)

And the one older book: Jean Barois by Roger Martin du Gard, translated by Stuart Gilbert (The Viking Press, 1949)

I'm not including the online Shakespeare course's last three plays. Guess I better get started...
