Anthony Burgess Shakespeare bought as a joke by a friend who knows I love Burgess but am agnostic on the Bard and against "biographies" of him. Have had a flip through and already spotted a couple of things I take issue with.

reading has been constrained by other circumstances, so so too acquisition, but as I attended a bookstore booklaunch for Christine Angot, Incest (Tess Lewis) [archipelago], {signed} thought I'd gather a few other things as well:
Jenny Erpenbeck, Go, Went, Gone (Susan Bernofsky) [NDP]
B.S. Johnson, House Mother Normal [NDP]
Robert Desnos, Essential Poems and Writings (Mary Ann Caws ed and et al) [Black Widow]
Nicanor Parra, Antipoems: How to look better and feel great (Liz Werner) [NDP]
Bae Suah, North Station (Deborah Smith) [Open Letter]
Percival Everett, So Much Blue [Graywolf]
Tarjei Vesaas, The Birds (Torbjørn Støverud, Michael Barnes) [archipelago]
Wolfgang Hilbig, Old Rendering Plant (Isabel Fargo Cole) [Two Lines]

currently in Kafka's diaries 1914-1923 (Martin Greenberg w/ Hannah Arendt) [schocken], another Renaissance pick-up (as was Golding, Roethke, Toomer ...)

The Concept of Law, H L A Hart

The Kingdom and the Glory: For a Theological Genealogy of Economy and Government, Agamben

The House of Government: A Saga of the Russian Revolution, Yuri Sleskine. I ummed and ahhed about this, but bought it after reading the LRB review, which was itself intrigued, intriguing.
