Incoming Books, Week of 9/22

This week, the books coming into La Casa Hornswoggler included:
  • Chuck Klosterman IV, a collection of pop-culture essays and criticism, which I actually paid money for;
  • three "real" books and two comics from the library, including Karen Russell's first short story collection St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves, since she really impressed me at the KGB Bar reading this week;
  • and a big box of stuff from Top Shelf for review at ComicMix -- it looks like fodder for at least two different round-ups and a solo review.
And now I want to try to finish off Jo Walton's Ha'penny today, while The Wife and kids are off apple-picking, so I can start the commute to the new job tomorrow morning with a new book. (Probably Joshua Ferris's Then We Came to the End, also from that library trip.)
