  1. Hi:

    Do you know this guy: Giorgio Scerbanenco? I’ve got A Private Venus coming soon.

    Cheers!

    • Yes I’ve heard of him. I’ve been waiting for a translation and then, since I’m on the Melville House list, I received the e-mail about the new releases.

      • Ah, yes…I bought something from Melville, and they sent me a ‘coupon’. When I tried to use it to buy Venus, it didn’t work. Oh well, the library had it!
