Candy Corn: The Worst Of Both Worlds: New Books In Graduate Services In October

A bountiful supply of books was delievered throughout October to Graduate Services. It was like Trick or Treat without the trick option at least a few days each week. Books coming in like candy (though with some substance behind them; I guess they’d be more like granola then; Or a Power Bar), and the only costume I had to wear was myself.  Isn’t October great. And now let’s count the stash: two Heideggers, five Carol Oates, four Yeats, a few Edmund Wilsons, an Agamben, Cather, Connelly, Conrad, Falci, Hunt, Nabokov, Landreth, Spender, Stovall, Wharton, Wolfe, Wright, Woolf, and a Zizek all in one month. My mind teeth are already sore just thinking about them.  Thank goodness there was no Candy Corn this year. Enjoy.
