The Sonnets by Warwick Collins (whose previous book, Gents, I enjoyed). This is a telling of the story surrounding Shakespeare's sonnets, or at least Wawick Collins's interpretation of the story surrounding Shakespeare's sonnets. so I expect it will educate me as well as entertain - which I always appreciate in a book.
Words from a Glass Bubble by Vanessa Gebbie, which flicking open I see is stuffed full of gorgeous prose - really looking forward to this some time soon.
And then this:
the very long awaited Val/Orsen by Marly Youmans. One of a limited edition of 500 and signed by Marly. At last! And I have to say it is very much worth the wait because it is gorgeous. The outside is a work of art in itself. I don't think I've ever anticipated a book with so much pleasure.
