Quite some good books are available only for a short time after they are first released. After that you can find them only in libraries, in second-hand bookshops or on a flea market. I think that this is a pity and I decided to give such books room on my blog.
Here's my list of books that I read and found worthy of my recommendation in a review although at least their English editions happen to be out of print:
- Vicki Baum: The Christmas Carp (1941)
- Antoine Blondin: A Monkey in Winter (1959), original French title: Un Singe en hiver
