If Only We Could Read Faster

New books for July 27, 2010
If time and money were infinite, this is what we would buy and read.
It’s a great week for cover design…

  

Super Sad True Love Story
Gary Shteyngart
A love story for the post-modern, post-security age, by the author of Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante’s Handbook. This is one of the most-hyped releases of the year, and we’re not immune to that.

The Four Fingers of Death
Rick Moody
A post-modern ode to Kurt Vonnegut and sci-fi, this doorstopper of a book has astronauts and a severed appendage crawling across America spreading plague.
Sold!

New in paperback:

Vanilla Ride
Joe R. Lansdale
Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard are the redneck versions of Harry and Perry in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. There. Try to not read it now. (Review.)
