Spanish Lit Month 2017: 7/16-7/22 Links


Thanks to all of you who read something for or in conjunction with Spanish Lit Month 2017 last week.  For those of you still looking to join in on the fun, please note that not only will SLM carry on into August but that Stu has proposed that next month will seamlessly morph into Spanish and Portuguese Lit Month for anyone wanting to add a Brazilian or Portuguese author to the mix.  Until then, here's the latest batch of links for your reading and blogging pleasure.

  1. It's funny that you confuse Solitude with Paradise - but I suppose I do too.

    1. Almost a Freudian slip there, eh? Sorry for drawing attention to my mistake with such Obookian panache!

  2. Oh good, then I guess I was ahead reading Joao Gilberto Noll's Atlantic Hotel! ;) I just finished Milena, the most beautiful femur in the world, which was upsetting and violent...off to find something a little more gentle for my next read. Have you read Never Any End to Paris by Enrique Vila-Matas? I'm looking at it in my lap right now...

    1. I'll include your post on Atlantic Hotel with one of the August link round-ups since Stu's decision to add Portuguese lit that month did make you a trendsetter! I have read Never Any End to Paris and think you might enjoy its mostly gentle sense of humor and more or less straightforward--rather than head-scratching--narrative structure. Hope you enjoy it!
