Books Acquired Recently

Arenas, Reinaldo. Before Night Falls. Trans. Dolores M. Koch. 1993. New York: Penguin, 1994.

I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, as it combines two interests of mine, queerness and Cuba. I’ve actually hardly read any Cuban literature, which is a problem that I need to remedy. Arenas’s memoir is a start.

Coverley, Merlin. Psychogeography. Harpenden: Pocket Essentials, 2010.

I’m teaching a course next semester that involves doing spatially-themed projects about Utica, and will read this book as part of my theoretical preparation. Judging from my brief examination of it thus far, the book looks accessible enough that I may assign parts of it to my students.
