White jazz in a café:
Nocturnes, still life –
The mouse and his child
Loitering with intent.

Usually my bookmashes combine books I’ve read and books I’ve yet to read, but these are all on the unread shelf; several are recent acquisitions from local second-hand bookstores.
I haven’t read any Lavin or Byatt yet; I’ve had mixed experiences with Ellroy and Ishiguro; and I like Hoban and Spark a lot, so I’ll try to make time for those two soon. (It helps that they’re short. Today’s read, Eric Kandel’s In Search of Memory: The Emergence of a New Science of Mind, is rather hefty. I just remembered it featured in a bookmash in 2014.)
Older book spine poems are here. This time, for once, I kept it simple. Thank you to the authors: James Ellroy, Mary Lavin, Kazuo Ishiguro, A.S. Byatt, Russell Hoban, and Muriel Spark.
