Time got away from us and Kat and I realized it’s been a while since there’s been a book club.
Here are the suggestions that have been made so far:
Short Story Collections:
“Ficciones” Jorge Luis Borges
“Bestiario” Julio Cortázar
The following collections of short stories may or may not have been suggested. Some comments disappeared after some technical difficulties and I had failed to write down the suggestions because technology never fails, right? I’ve learned my lesson! So all I could recall was a book of short stories was suggested and these three collections showed up on the results of my half-assed Amazon search.
Memoria de mis putas tristes Gabriel García Márquez
The Tía Lola Stories by Julia Alvarez: These were originally written in English and then translated to Spanish. These are actually middle grade books (geared to 8-12 year olds), but I confess I enjoy books for this age level.
A Lupita le gustaba planchar Laura Esquivel
Las Muertas by Jorge Ibargüengoitia
Pedro Páramo by Juan Rulfo
So, what books would you be interested in reading and discussing?
