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!
Today is the US publication date of Paul Griffiths's Mr. Beethoven! New York Review Books has been on a hot streak! This book came out last year in the UK, where it was up for the Republic of Consciousness Prize and the Goldsmiths Prize. I've heard only good things, and now that I've started it I can see why.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Out today from Archipelago Books, Hanne Ørstavik’s The Pastor, translated by Martin Aitken. I just got this so I’ve only read about twenty pages, but it’s hooked me! Ørstavik’s Love won the 2019 PEN Translation Prize, and The Pastor feels just as worthy!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
