Dropping Names and Falling Higher: New Books In Graduate Services in July

What a month July was! Look at all these books that arrived! Can you believe it! I think July 2011 will be remembered more for how many books arrived here in Graduate Services than this past July 4th you can't remember or forget (the conundrum of a very good time). Though I can't remember what the record was to verify this fact, the amount of books coming in to Graduate Services must be a new monthly record! Agamben, Barthes, Blanchot, Baudrillard, Auden, Badiou, Berry, Bishop, Bly, Kristeva, Kennedy, Mamet, Latour, Rorty, Rich, Pound, Oates. And then there are books by UC Berkeley faculty memebers Abel, Alter, Chandra, Hass, Fudge, Reed, Kaes, Sas, Vernon, Nylan, Largier, as well as a book of essays in honor of Jan de Vries. I'm dropping names like they are rocks and I'm looking down a great big well. And you know what. Maybe I am. A great big well of knowledge right here on the Graduate Services new book shelves. And now my time is up and I didn't even get to mention that the first books from Alasdair Gray, the newest member of the Modern Authors Collection, arrived in July too. Drop his name and see what happens.
