I'm in the middle of moving and should not be spending money, but the summer sale is so tempting.

If I was going to buy 10 Dalkey books this summer, I'd buy:

The Magic Kingdom by Stanley Elkin
The Rabbi of Lud by Stanley Elkin
News from the Empire by Fernando del Paso
Count Julian by Juan Goytisolo
Marks of Identity by Juan Goytisolo

Makbara by Juan Goytisolo
Boswell: A Modern Comedy by Stanley Elkin
L.C. by Susan Daitch
Paradiso by Jose Lezama Lima
The Loop by Jacques Roubaud

I just picked up a used copy of Markson's Wittgenstein's Mistress. Perhaps I should have checked the sale first!

You can't go wrong with Stanley Elkin. He's gotta be the funniest "unknown" writer out there.

Wittgenstein's Mistress is one of the most strangely sublime reads I've ever read.

I picked up L.C. and The Loop during last year's sale. I'd ordered Paradiso but they were out of stock. May need to retry this year!

I'm reading a Dalkey book I can entusiastically recommend: Augusto Roa Bastos's I, the Supreme. Here's a link to the page from their website:

Enter into the mind of José Gaspar Rodríguez de Francia

I'm also reading Paradiso, and it's been fantastic so far.

Others from their collection of books from Latin America, some of which I've read, some of which I'd like to read:

On Elegance While Sleeping by Emilio Láscano Tegui
Op Oloop by Juan Filloy
Three Trapped Tigers by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
Cobra and Maitreya by Severo Sarduy
The Fear of Losing Eurydice by Julieta Campos
News from the Empire and Palinuro of Mexico by Fernando del Paso
The Buenos Aires Affair, Heartbreak Tango and Betrayed by Rita Hayworth by Manuel Puig
