Gifts from America

Oh how we love the UPS man and his brown uniform. We've just received the American edition of the new Thomas Pynchon novel Against the Day. Could this be one of those rare occasions when we actually get a book on sale before the big boys?? (Please don't/do tell me if it's already on sale at your local high street)


  1. Not only that but on the tip-off from a customer just back from New York 3 beautiful editions from a small publisher - Archipelago Press - not unlike our very own Pushkin.

    -Posthumous Papers of a Living Author, Robert Musil
    -The Serpent of Stars, Jean Giono
    -Bacacay, Witold Gombrowicz

    The box from America just keeps on givin'...

  2. Speaking of Pynchon, anyone out there with some loose venture captial to underwrite a 100 part TV miniseries of Gravity's Rainbow, please let me know.

  3. Please send me one of each of all of these plus Gore Vidal`s autobiography.. your turn t get my 'order from an indie bookseller' again.
