Three literary gems in my mail box Friday

Some days the mail is richer in content than others but look what arrived Friday:

THE BOX by Gunter Grass - Harvill Secker - Hardback - $49.99

This is an uncorrected proof copy for me to read ahead of its NZ release date on 7 January 2011 (only 7 weeks away!)
This is the sequel to Peeling the Onion about which the New Yorker said "a memoir of rare literary beauty.


This is the journal of the Katherine Mansfield Society and is published by the Edinburgh University Press.
Copies are sent free to members of the Katherine Mansfield Society.
The theme for this volume is: Katherine Mansfield and Modernism
Foreword by C. K. Stead: Honorary Vice-President, Katherine Mansfield Society

Copies are also available to purchase in their website shop, along with other items of interest on Katherine Mansfield, such as our Christmas card for 2010:

Open House
Edited by David Eggleton (prose) and Richard Reeve (poetry)
Otago University Press - $29.95

"new voices, an eclectic range of poetry, a bunch of "first-person fictions", reviews of dozens of recent NZ books, and terrific artwork by Max Oettli and Andrew Ross".
