I’ve been digging into the more obscure realms of my bookshelves this evening, trying to see what we can read for Spanish Lit Month (well, the France v Ecuador match wasn’t all that interesting), and came up with the following from which to make a selection (I omit the book names, but let’s say they’re not the most famous ones):
Macedonio Fernández, Eugenio Cambaceres, Abel Posse, Camilo José Cela, Miguel Delibes, Agustín Yáñez, José María Arguedas, Jesús Díaz, Rómulo Gallegos, Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio, Adolfo Bioy Casares, Benito Pérez Galdós, Ramón del Valle-Inclán, Juan José Saer, Josefina Vicens, Juan Benet, Ramón Pérez de Ayala, Julio Cortázar, Juan Carlos Onetti, Alejo Carpentier, Gonzalo Torrente Ballester, Alfredo Bryce Echenique, Juan José Arreola and Ernesto Sabato.
Any preferences? I’ll probably manage about five I imagine – but not if they’re long. And plenty of short stories.
Plus I will be reading Paradiso, by José Lezama Lima, but not getting to (near) the end of it in July.
