It's interesting because it's translated by Anthea Bell who also translated my copy of Austerlitz. So I have great feelings about this book.

Moira Russell Wait, Anthea Bell? Anthea Bell who translated all my Andersen fairy tales and Kater Murr and the Inkworld books, that Anthea Bell?

OMG IT IS SPREADING

....the NYRB books are like potato chips - it's something about the godamn uniform size and binding and allcaps type on the spine and IDEFK. They set off this 'MUST COLLECT THEM ALL' thing.
