My Life - Lyn Hejinian
Lost in the City - Edward P. Jones
Señas de identidad - Juan Goytisolo
A Journey Through Texas - Frederick Law Olmsted
If This Be Treason: Translation and its Discontents - Gregory Rabassa
Telling Tales - Ed. Nadine Gordimer
Gringos in Mexico - Ed. Edward Simmen
The Last Known Residence of Mickey Acuña - Dagoberto Gilb

I'm not a nerd, I guess! I want to listen to ELO records and go to bars. I win!

But congrats on finals being done!
