I have several on Mt. TBR, including The Snows of Yesteryear, Names on the Land, The Post-Office Girl, The Family Mashber, The Adventures and Misadventures of Maqroll, The Radiance of the King, and many more . . .
I have about 31 NYRB Classics on my shelves that I haven't read yet. So much to look forward to!
The ones I'm definitely going to read are:
Life and Fate by Vasili Grossman
Beware of Pity by Stefan Zweig
Chess Story by Stefan Zweig
The Furies by Janet Hobhouse
It's a deal. I'm off to find The Post-Office Girl today.
Maqroll was fantastic. I owe a great debt to the person in this group that first recommended it.
Meanwhile, I'm also tempted to treat myself this year to the entire J.G. Farrell Collection. (I loved The Siege of Krishnapur, but haven't yet read the other two.)
