Spanish Lit Month 2017: 7/1-7/8 Links


It was both a pleasure and a relief to see so many people join us for the first week of Spanish Lit Month 2017 despite our late announcement of this year's event.  And with the arrival of internet service at the new Caravana de recuerdos manor, it should be even easier to keep up with your output in future weeks.  In any event, here's a list of last week's SLM links--feel free to let me know if I've missed any posts either here or by e-mail or on Twitter (Richard@caravanablog) if you prefer to avoid Blogger's comments-squashing security apparatus.  In the meantime, happy reading!

  2. Thanks for the links, Richard. I read a new to me author, Joao Gilberto Noll, with his novel Atlantic Hotel.

    Is it just me who tends to find Spanish authors so obtuse? :)

    1. I read your Atlantic Hotel review with interest, Bellezza, but I left it off the list because I believe the author is a Portuguese language writer (Brazilian) and not a Spanish language one. Please correct me if I'm wrong. P.S. Can't help you with that "obtuse" comment, but I'm glad you like Marías at least!

  3. Okay, now I am officially embarrassed. Of course, it is Brazilian! So sorry for my error. Hope Marias qualifies. ;)
