Xmas Loot 2017.

An enjoyable but tiring day, I’ll just list a few items of LH interest:

The Guy Davenport Reader (thanks, jamessal!)

The Russian Memoir: History and Literature, edited by Beth Holmgren

James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon, by Julie Phillips

I was also thrilled to get Irina Mashinski’s latest book of poetry, Делавер [Delaware] (thanks, Irina!); the title sequence is online here and my account of a 2014 reading at Mount Holyoke College is here. [May 2023: The entire book is now online here.]

I wish everyone the very best of holidays!

    Barika ne fu buriyasuŋ!

  2. Mubarak bolsun!

  3. .a’o le do nalgundei cu gleki
    [hopefully] the specific-to-you non-work-day happy

  4. Trond Engen says

    Bulls in my barrack!

    Buerie jåvle!

  5. David Eddyshaw says

    The seasonal greeting is surely “Bulls in your barrack, boss!”

  6. Hat,

    The NY Times just posted an article on the last living speaker of Taushiro that I think you’ll be interested in:

    I think it’s fitting under this entry of Christmas Loot, because I suspect the Times published this and a couple other long features now because people have more time to read them. They are Christmas Loot from the Times.

    [rest of comment moved to new post — LH.]

  7. Thanks, I’ve posted it and moved the bulk of your comment there, since it would be kind of silly to start discussing it here!

  8. Ein Frohes Neues Jahr!

  9. David Eddyshaw says

    Barika ne ya yuumpaalig!

  10. Kerlachu shartsa! (no Cyrillic!)

  11. marie-lucie says

    A traditional French wish:

    Bonne année,
    Bonne santé,
    le paradis à la fin de vos jours!

    Do people say 新年好 around now, or are they holding off till February 16th?
