After a year of really, really hard work I am taking a well-deserved vacation to the Dalmatian Coast. I plan to lie on a beach and read for a week.
Oh, and write that piece I have due on July 12th. And work on this other essay. And revise my Rhys chapter. And…
Yeah. But I will only have occasional internet access, so that is what makes this a vacation!
Here's what I'm packing:
Charlotte Mandell's translation of Mathias Enard's Zone (ok that's a Word doc, since it won't appear in book form til September)
Courtney Angela Brkic, Stillness and The Stone Fields
Saša Stanišić, How the Soldier Repairs the Gramophone
Sonya Chung, Long For this World
Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, Production of Presence
Simone de Beauvoir, La force de l'age
Emmanuel Carrère, Un roman russe
Karin Albou, La grande fete
Peter Carey, Wrong About Japan
…should be enough to keep me busy!
Anyone have any other books about Croatia I should read? It'll have to wait til after I get back, but tell me anyway!
