Amazon’s wishlist, it was great when they were tiny and unknown and all I wanted to do was spread the word about a great bookstore. Amazon isn’t so tiny any more. They sell everything - even cloud storage! Amazon is cramping my tiny, independent style these days.
Today begins a whole new year though I’ve decided to act. This will be a work in progress for awhile but I’m consolidating my wishlists from around the web here so that anyone can find it. I promise to keep it up-to-date, Jürgen.
Until I Find You: A Novel
I love John Irving’s novels and Lindsey said this new one was worth the read.

Letters, Summer 1926
- How this book got on my list: Recommendation from John.
- The summer of 1926 was a time of trouble and uncertainty for each of the three poets whose correspondence is collected in this moving volume. Marina Tsvetayeva was living in exile in France and struggling to get by. Boris Pasternak was in Moscow, trying to come to terms with the new Bolshevik regime. Rainer Maria Rilke, in Switzerland, was dying. Though hardly known to each other, they began to correspond, exchanging a series of searching letters in which every aspect of life and work is discussed with extraordinary intensity and passion. Letters: Summer 1926 takes the reader into the hearts and minds of three of the twentieth century’s greatest poets at a moment of maximum emotional and creative pressure.
