You know you’re a nerd when you are giddy with excitement because of this:
Yes, it’s the new translation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky and it’s due to be published on October 16th (they are some of my favorite translators). And I’m going to pre-order it. It’s all I could do to restrain myself from jumping up and down and clapping like a giddy idiot. Just another sign that grad school is the place for me!
