This week our podcast is all about Emily Dickinson (with some indulgent tangents, I must admit). It was so nice to sit down and discuss her poems with Paul. Several listeners shared memories or favorite poems, and we were able to share those on the podcast, making it all the more meaningful and richer. I hope you enjoy!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today Archipelago Books is publishing Jacques Poulin's Autumn Rounds, translated by Sheila Fischman. It does not feel like so much time has passed, but I first read Poulin in 2009 when I picked up Spring Tides (1978) and Translation Is a Love Affair (2006). I loved them, and I'm anxious to read Autumn Rounds, which also seems to be about book lovers, concerning, as it does, a man who drives up and down the coast delivering books to people who don't have libraries. It sounds absolutely perfect for a pleasant afternoon read on the couch.
Happy Thanksgiving!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my favorite books is J.A. Baker's The Peregrine, so I have been very excited to read a book that @nyrbooks touted as being "comparable in its intensity of perception and originality of style to J. A. Baker’s classic The Peregrine." And Nastassja Martin's In the Eye of the World is definitely a strange and powerful book.

Join @bibliopaul and me for our special Halloween episode of The Mookse and the Gripes Podcast! We decided to chat about Shirley Jackson's 1951 novel, Hangsaman!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before her death in 1937, Edith Wharton had compiled a collection of her ghost stories spanning her career. It was published shortly after her death with the simple title Ghosts, and it included a preface she had written for it. Out of print for far too long, it was published this week by NYRB Classics, just in time for this ghostly time of year!
