New Library Books

New books are always being added to our excellent Library collection. Here is Librarian Tom McConville's latest list of new additions. They include :

In Junior Fiction,
Michelle Paver's Outcast, the fourth volume of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness sequence, called 'very moving and touching' in an Amazon review, and Michael Scott's The Alchemyst (more on Scott's website).

In Senior Fiction, Pat Barker's Life Class, mentioned in a post here recently, Sebastian Faulks's Engleby, and Don DeLillo's contribution to the steady growing genre of '9/11 Fiction', Falling Man (reviewed by Adam Mars-Jones in the Observer here as 'a masterly polyphonic fizzling').

In Non-Fiction, two books relevant to English courses, Christopher Bigsby's excellent study Arthur Miller, and Ariel : the Restored Edition, which includes a fascimile of Sylvia Plath's originals.
