New Spanish novels

In consultation with the MFL department library liaison and department chair, and input from the Spanish language faculty, the library has recently set up an approval plan with the Latin American Book Store to receive monthly shipments of Spanish language (both Latin American and Peninsular) books, according to the research and teaching profile we set up with them. Recent shipments have included the following novels (click picture for BearCat Record):

We have also received several novels by Roberto Bolaño, in order to fill out our collection. Bolaño is garnering renewed interest and publishing houses are reissuing many of his novels after he posthumously received the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction for his novel 2666.

If you would like to get updated on any new books cataloged in your subject area of interest, the library publishes RSS feeds that you can subscribe to. Be the first to know what has arrived in the library!
