What books did you get for the holidays?

We received two copies of The Savage Detectives by Roberto Balano. I’m looking forward to reading about this very different world of a militant literary movement in Mexico City in the 1970s.  A friend who has read it already has warned me that the middle section of the book (there are three written in different voices and styles) was rather slow for him- he loved it, he hated it but ended up thinking it was the best book he read last year.

I also got two books that our library system does not currently have a copy but I will be recommending them:
