The one book I begged for at the PNBA tradeshow, I finally got! Sarah Bakewell’s How to Live, or A Life of Montaigne. I’m taking it in in gulps, to make it last, and, of course reading the essays again as I go.
Also, the Vertigo reissue of Stuck Rubber Baby, the groundbreaking graphic novel by Howard Cruse. This is the November selection for the Seattle Gay & Lesbian Book Club. Really looking forward to reading this again.
And from the bookstore’s Espresso Book Machine, reprints of essays from Andrew Lang and Richard Dowling — two wonderful, long out of print English Gentlemen of Letters.
