At long last! Our postman has just delivered the Folio Society edition of A.S. Byatt's Booker Prize-winning Possession that I pre-ordered last fall (this and another Folio edition, also arrived, because ordered in 2008, were the express caveats to my 2009 resolution to abstain from buying books for myself)! As expected, the edition is gorgeous...
In further news of note to this blog: I expect to begin William Golding's Rites of Passage before the month is out. I have William Vollmann's sometimes-fascinating, often-interminable Fathers and Crows, and Sebastian Barry's Annie Dunne, to finish first.
