Oooh! I'm excited. Some new books have just been released by/in collaboration with some of my favourite book makers. This is big news for me. 

You know I love Lawrence Weschler, right? I really adore everything I've ever read of his, and some of his writing has changed my life. For real. His new book Uncanny Valley was just released in September and he's coming to Toronto for a reading at Type books on November 15th. I thought I had missed it, but now it's in my calendar. Phew!

As if that weren't enough, there's a new release of Michael Pollan's Food Rules with illustrations by Maira Kalman. Holy moly. It looks so lovely and funny and thoughtful. As usual.

And lastly, Chris brought my attention to Miranda July's latest book, It Chooses You. The book "recounts July's adventures with a series of strangers she met through the classified ads in the Penny Saver." The New Yorker posted excerpts of the book for a week in October. It'll be released on November 15th.
