Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

Dear Readers:

If any of you book-lovers out there were wondering what "we" here at Caravana would be reading in October while the world economy crashed and burned, this must be your lucky day.
  • Paul Auster, City of Glass (Penguin)
  • Roberto Bolaño, 2666 (Anagrama)
  • Rodrigo Fresan, Mantra (Mondadori/Año 0)

I'm only two chapters into the Auster novella thus far, so I'll have to postpone any comments on this first third of his New York Trilogy until later. I have read big chunks of both the Bolaño and the Fresan doorstoppers (clocking in at 1127 and 539 pages respectively), though, and feel confident they will be huge faves by the time I'm done with them. Fantastic writers! Breathless prose!! Updates soon!!!

  1. Al Jolson: Brother Can You Spare A Dime

    I heard today that Mr Bush "is going to override a law banning Uranium mining in the Grand Canyon... wiping away a 70 year-old law just so his mining corporations can rape that part of the country... giving people only 12 days of "public comment" before the law is thrown out and mining can begin. So long, Grand Canyon."
