  1. I believe «Valerie» by Sara Stridsberg must be a tanslation of the Swedish novel«Drömfakulteten», a strange & wonderful book I read more than 10 years ago. Looking forward to hear your respons on it!
    From your list, I’m especially looking forward to reading: Gerald Murnane, Toni Morrison, Siri Hustvedt, Ali Smith, Rachel Cusk, Tessa Headly and Elizabeth Strout …


  2. Some exciting books in your selection; I see some Fitzcarraldo Editions and a new Siri Hustvedt (I will have to read my books very, very fast!), and another Ali Smith. Riches indeed.


  3. Lots to look forward to here, Juliana – many thanks for the preview. I’m particularly interested in the Madeleine Bourdouxhe. La Femme de Gilles was heartbreaking but beautifully written.
