Spanish Lit Month Links: 7/22-7/28


Crazy shit at work and--on a much more satisfying note--spending both ends of the week in the company of attractive out of state friends intent on plying me with alcohol while the Avengers, the Cramps, the Ramones, and the Stooges blared away in the background sort of took a toll on my Spanish Lit Month plans for the week.  Oh, well.  Fortunately for you virtual pals, it looks like the other Spanish Lit Month participants had much more "mellow" weeks than I did for a change...

    1. LOL! But that's only b/c you haven't read "El fiord," which is everything Bolaño warned you about.

  2. Hi Richard

    Here's my second read for the month: Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind. Much to my dismay, the book turned out to be disappointing in the final analysis.

    Here's the review:
