Just when you think it's safe to take a break from books and blogging, and do other stuff ( like clean out the pantry and find out exactly how many packets of dried fruit have expired, and where the lentils got to), some great news like THIS comes out
And this interview with Ford from The Guardian is pretty cool too. I have ordered a copy in hardback from Readings already - so there goes the book budget again.
I'll have to wait to get hold of Auster's Brooklyn Follies, Mitchell's Black Swan Green and Carey's Theft. I went secondhand bookshopping the other week and picked up one of Alex Miller's novels, a book of Imagist poetry and some other bits and pieces for $30. I also found a copy of a 1999 novel by Alistair McLeod I had completely forgotten about, No Great Mischief.
