Literally, these five books are stacked on my nightstand. I'd love to say that sometime in the near future I'll have read them all, and will be able to blog about each one, but let's face it: I have no clue when I'll have read them, let alone reflected sufficiently to write about them.
So, as dubious a substitute as it may be, here's a photo of the fab five. I don't know what to think of the fact that this group represents an all-fiction feast. On the other hand, let's celebrate the presence of independent/small press titles, as well as fiction in translation (you can't see the translators' names, but the de Winter book was translated by Jeanette K. Ringold, and Rasskazy [the title means "stories" in Russian] features the work of many translators, including Keith Gessen, Ellen Litman, and Douglas Robinson).
