I don’t know why, and I’d rather not analyze what that may say about me, sowatch my other hand while I wave it around andskip ahead to the review....Read more of this blog post »
Those of you who pay attention know how feel about Gabriel Garcia Marquez ‘Gabo’; may he rest in peace. Now I know it’s classless to speak ill of the dead – nevertheless it’s our job, we writers, to try to arrive at a greater understanding.
