Just a few new arrivals this week:
- Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire (Harper Paperbacks, 2006). Brookline Booksmith. Since Maguire's new one about the Lion looks good, I thought I'd better catch up.
- Mirth of a Nation: The Best Contemporary Humor; edited by Michael J. Rosen (Harper, 2000). Harvard Bookstore.
- The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation. Volume II: The Kingdom on the Waves by M.T. Anderson (Candlewick Press, 2008). Harvard Bookstore. I've been looking forward to this one since reading the first volume earlier this year.
