As is traditional at LH, I hereby list the books I received for my birthday yesterday (I’ll create an Addendum for any late arrivals):
Shadow & Claw: The First Half of ‘The Book of the New Sun’, by Gene Wolfe
Annihilation, by Jeff VanderMeer
Everything Is Cinema: The Working Life of Jean-Luc Godard, by Richard Brody (review)
(My brother gave me a DVD of Godard’s Goodbye to Language, which goes nicely with the Brody book.) My thanks to all the generous givers, and I’m excited about all of these books!
