  1. Cheers for the links, Richard - always appreciated. Hooray for the extension of Spanish Lit Month into August. It might be the middle of the month before I get my Ulloa review up, but it will happen. :)

  3. Good, I have another novel to review; and then 2 more which I'll never finish in August either but are nonetheless very good (to this point).

    1. Hi Mandy--and thanks so much for those posts! I've added the Herrera link to the appropriate week and will likely add the Villalobos to the first week's links even though it falls outside the July & August parameters. Nice to make the acquaintance of you and your blog, by the way. Cheers!
