This week's acquisitions
Sophie from Virago was kind enough to send me a little package of books on Tuesday, cheering up my first week of February. Memento Mori (Spark) is Virago's latest addition to their Modern Classics list and matches the other Muriel Sparks that they have been bringing out over the last year or so. Having enjoyed My Antonia so much, I asked if she had any spare books by Cather, and I was rewarded not only with a copy of O Pioneers, but Hermione Lee's biography of Cather. I've already had a flip through the biography and it looks hugely interesting.
