Steve's Nominations (Round Tres)

There's nothing thematic going on here. Just some books I'd like to read. Also, I swear I made this list before I saw Brandon's (Kawabata must be in the air).

Edgar A. Poe: Mournful and Never-ending Remembrance, Kenneth Silverman
The Undertaking: Life Studies from a Dismal Trade, Thomas Lynch
Marcovaldo, or Seasons in the City, Italo Calvino
Palm-of-the-Hand Stories, Yusanari Kawabata
Death Comes for the Archbishop, Willa Cather
Railsea, China Mieville

Hey, Book Skimmers-
So it looks like we're talking about Tom McCarthy's book next. Because I currently have a conflict with my Thursday evenings, I'm hoping everyone can make it to a Wednesday discussion in April. I'm told that Wednesday, April 19 is open for those OH2 folks who normally have midweek obligations. I hope it works for everyone. Let me know if it doesn't.

Place and exact time TBD.
