Books Read – Aug 15

Books read here (and films seen here). Neither going particularly well, and not much inspiring stuff to report.

Looking forward to reading some non-Spanish literature for a change; in fact, following my list from a few weeks ago, will be starting on some English literature (of the slightly more off-beat kind), as well as looking at some of McCrum’s choices which I’ve previously neglected (hence, I’m reading Penelope Fitzgerald).

I read quite a few Spanish short stories too, of which the best was My Burial by Leopoldo Alás, and also various good stories by Emilia Pardo Bazán.
