So here's a tentative list of books I'm bringing to Japan: this was serious work!
1) A gift from my fab girlfriend: a first edition of _Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti_ by Maya Deren.
2) _Science Fiction_ by Andrew Joron
3) _Poetry and the Fate of the Senses_ by Susan Stewart
4)_Selected Non Ficions_ by Borges
5)_The Collected Books of Jack Spicer_
6)_The Black Reeds_ by Mark McMorris
7)_Gravity's Rainbow_by T. pynchon (because I've been reading it, in very small portions, very smalll, for three years now)
8) _Tales of Murasaki_by Martine Bellen
9)_The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon_
10)_The Shadow of the Wind_ by Carlos R. Zafon.
Of course this is subject to change, but I think it's a good start.
