Skipping Around, My Bad: NYTBR 27 January 2008

Self has mis-laid the NYTBR issue of 20 January 2008. That was the weekend self was in San Luis Obispo, so she was understandably a *wee* bit distracted.

But today the weather is gorgeous, dear blog reader! It is the first sunny day in northern California since — since perhaps the weekend that Melissa A visited, three weekends ago.

Without further ado, here is the list of books self is interested in reading after perusing the 27 January 2008 issue of The New York Times Book Review:

(1) After reading J. R. Moehringer’s review of William T. Vollmann’s latest book, Riding Toward Everywhere:

William T. Vollmann’s Riding Toward Everywhere

(2) After reading Troy Patterson’s review of Adam Langer’s third novel, Ellington Boulevard: A Novel in A-Flat:

Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth
Jay McInerney’s Bright Lights, Big City
Adam Langer’s Ellington Boulevard: A Novel in A-Flat

(3) After reading Christopher Benfey’s review of Pat Barker’s new novel, Life Class:

Paul Fussell’s The Great War and Modern Memory
Pat Barker’s Life Class
