Late August Book Porn: Non-English Books

August 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

Castellanos Moya is one of the best living Central American writers today; he was a close friend of Bolaño.  The other book is a non-fiction that captured my attention.

Visited my favorite used bookstore in Nashville for the first time in over a month today.  Bought a lot more books than usual, so the book porn will be divided into two posts.  This one is devoted to non-English books I bought.

Two books associated with Mario Vargas Llosa.

Bought an extra copy of La vida es sueño to give as a birthday gift to someone dear to me; the other is a 16th century novel.

Been meaning to buy this Vallejo for a while now.  Little idea what the other is about.

A Dutch Bible and an Allende novel that I didn’t have in hardcover format.

Been meaning to read Quasimodo for a while (this is a bilingual edition); the Eco is a replacement copy.

A Diderot and a Hugo novel that I didn’t already own.

Curious about the Giraudoux and I have yet to read Fo in any language, so why not a play in French?

The second post will feature mostly YA fictions that will be read and likely given as gifts as part of the exchange of YA/children’s favorites.
