As part of La Antigua Guatemala’s town fair celebrations of Santiago, there are books stands right on Central Park. These book fairs are a great opportunity to get Latin-American literature a discounted prices.
Today I bought four books for Q25; that’s about the price of an economic meal in La Antigua Guatemala. El examen by Julio Cortazar, Ensueños and Demián by Hermann Hesse, and Amor y Pedagogía (3 novelas ejemplares y 1 prólogo) by Miguel de Unamuno are part of our library and my to read list. With those four books and three more books given to me recently by LAGDP readers I pretty much have my books to read for the rest of year. I am a slow reader; I wish I was not. ;-)
I am in the middle of The Divine Husband by Francisco Goldman, which was given to me recently as a present (Thanks! you know who you are). When I finish reading this amazing Guatemalan novel by Francisco Goldman, I will embark in two Canandian novels: The Age of Longing by Richard B. Wright and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood thanks to Pues sí tú Manolo.
If you are in Antigua right now, don’t let this opportunity to buy some great Guatemalan literature go by; bookmark a stroll to Central Park. ;-)
