РидРейт отмечает новинки июля:
– “Брыки блядского Дента” Дэвида Духовны
– “Край навылет” Томаса Пинчона (и почетно упоминает “блистательного литературоведа” – они сами-то хоть его наброс читали?)
– “Из блокнота в винных пятнах” Чарлза Буковски

а в “Новом мире” заметили выход рассказов Мервина Пика

нечто под названием “в Киеве” тоже заметило выход романа Духовны (и беззастенчиво цитирует Шаши без упоминания авторства, oh well)
