LIBROS ASADOS: Book Burning Society of the Americas

Libros Asados: Book Burning Society of the AmericasMusic is bringing me to Mexico City this weekend. I’ll have time to dig around some of the megacity’s great bookstores in addition to parrandeando.

So, dear reader, can you recommend me some good books to check out? My Spanish-language contemporary fiction bookshelf has a lot of dudes in it — much as I love Paco Ignacio Taibo II, Cesar Aira, Juan Pablo Villalobos, Yuri Herrera, etc — I’m particularly curious about recent writing by women. And yes, Rita Indiana’s new novel Nombres y Animales will be published next week! My Mudd Up Book Clubb reading list gives you an idea of what’s up my alley. OK gracias.

One thought on “LIBROS ASADOS: Book Burning Society of the Americas”

  1. Hey hey. Another bloke I’m afraid, and not recent either: I’m enjoying ‘The Death of Artemio Cruz’ by Carlos Fuentes.

    Plus, you read any/much by Octavio Paz? I got a book if his criticism / non fiction stuff, I dig it.

    Have a great time!
