Just a few more items for the “so many books, so little time” column:
~ NPR’s Alan Cheuse, who always makes reliable recommendations, presents his summer picks.
~ Also at NPR.org, Emily Wylie takes a turn at Three Books—cowboys and indians, which includes Sherman Alexie's wonderful The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian
~ The LA Times offers a nice, annotated round-up of summer releases. I've added the following to my TBR list: Come on Shore and We WillKill and Eat You All (Christina Thompson, Bloomsbury, 7/08), What I Talk About When I Talk About Running (Haruki Murakami, Knopf, 7/08), Man in the Dark (Paul Auster, Henry Holt, 8/08)
