Forthcoming Books I am Looking Forward to Reading

It seems like mere moments, but in fact it’s been nine months since my last post listing the forthcoming books I was looking forward to reading. In most cases the books on that last list were acquired, though I’ve read only four of the nineteen listed, though remain interested in reading the others. This year I’m acquiring fewer books, but the following are mostly irresistible:

  1. Antonio Negri, Spinoza: Then and Now
  2. Michel Houellebecq, Serotonin
  3. Denise Riley, Time Lived, Without Its Flow
  4. Rachel Mann, A Kingdom of Love
  5. Sergio Chejfec, The Incompletes
  6. Yiyun Li, Must I Go
  7. Karl Ole Knausgaard, In the Land of the Cyclops
  8. Naomi Klein, On Fire: The Burning Case for a New Green Deal
  9. Fanny Howe, Love and I
  10. J. M. Coetzee, The Death of Jesus
  11. Roberto Calasso, The Celestial Hunter
  12. Vivian Gornick, Unfinished Business: Notes of a Chronic Re-Reader
  13. Theodor W. Adorno, Siegfried Kracauer, Correspondence: 1923-1966
  14. Martin Mittelmeier, Adorno in Naples: The Origins of Critical Theory
  15. Roberto Bazlen, Notes Without a Text [almost given up on this one]
  16. Pierre Hadot, The Selected Writings of Pierre Hadot: Philosophy as Practice
  17. S. D. Chrostowska, The Eyelid

  1. Forget Houellebecq, it’s terrible. It wd be a waste of money and was badly received here.

    Your Foucault post evokes Wittgenstein. And Contre-jour by Josipovici, on what to do what the sayable / unsayable



      1. I have not read him either, but as an immigrant in the UK I am always interested in seeing how other foreigners see the country and its rather unique ways. (Or should that be countries? Clearly, I have a lot to learn.) The mixture of Oxbridge and a spy thriller sounds quite fascinating.

  2. No Krasznahorkai? “Baron Wenckheim’s Homecoming” has been top of my list since it was announced last November! Hope the release date doesn’t get delayed at the last minute (Houllebecq was supposed to be the same Sept. 24 date but got moved to Nov. 19 – different publisher’s obviously).
