Litlove, glad to know it's such a wonderful book. I don't have it--yet :) Matt, I'll call it inspiration. I hope your visit to Half Price Books is a good one! I don't think I've ever been there and not found at least one book to take home with me.

Glad to have inspired you, or at least I prefer to think of it as inspiration. :) I am jealous in return because you have a Half Priced Books in your area. As I've mentioned though I will be visiting one soon enough. Hope you found some great books!

Any publisher who brings back Colette's Pure and Impure gets my vote. That is a wonderful book. Exquisite writing.

Gentle Reader, so many people are reading Dud Avocado. One of my coworkers was reading it the other day and she was shocked that I had heard of it. She is not a blog reader so it was challenging trying to explain it all to her :) Dark Orpheus, any backlist that includes Colette has got to be worthwhile. I hope NYRB does so well with their classics that other publishers will start to imitate them. Is that hoping for too much?

To add on to the NYRB Classics rave - the discerning people also have Colette's Pure and the Impure on their backlist. These are really discerning people. *approving nods* Publishers who really read - how cool is that? Ah, I love them. Just started reading the introduction to The Dud Avocado, even though I have too many books in progress. I hope it's as funny as people say it is. Oh, Stefanie - will see if I can get to Sleepless Nights in time. Thanks.
