Peter Cherces bought La Boutique Obscure by Georges Perec. “I ♥ Oulipians and the MobyLives blog,” he said.
Alexandra Branzburg bought Half the Kingdom by Lore Segal “[Melville House publicist] Nick recommended it to me and I trust his taste,” she said.
Arielle Holstein bought Aurorarama by Jean-Christophe Valtat. “I was reading the description for his new book, Luminous Chaos,” she said. “I thought it sounded up my alley and I figured I’d better read the first book to start.”
Shaakya Vembar bought two novellas. “I haven’t read these authors and one of them deals with insanity,” she said.
