Pathseeker unleashed this Earth of Mankind, Mules and Side Effects




Some of the books I gleaned at the local library's book sale last week. I dowsed some serendipitous finds, including This Earth of Mankind by Indonesian author  Pramoedya Ananta Toer (This Earth of Mankind... As opposed to this earth of ... the aliens?  Yaaaaah!) A Groff Conklin-edited anthology, Zora Neale Hurston's Mules and Men, The Pathseeker by Imre Kertész, and a boxed set by Woody Allen (one of my high school English teachers used to read to us pieces from Side Effects once in a while).


I also procured this Günter Grass collection and 1959 Mad anthology.

  1. Library sales are good for great finds and good prices! Sounds like you unearthed some treasures.

  2. They are, Lisa. I just happened across this one. They sold books by the bagful (or individually), quite inexpensive. I filled two shopping bags with books.
