Wow -- sounds interesting. I read about half of another book by Jose Saramago. It was interesting, but it was hard to get through and I got discouraged in the middle. If this one was good, though, I can try to check it out next trip to Sefer ve-Sefel (way in the distant future, thanks to you!;))

This book was very popular in Mexico a few years ago (3 or 4?) and I did try it out (in Spanish) and just couldn't get into it. It does have wonderful reviews and most of my reader friends in Mexico loved it.

Oh, the smell update -- I was meaning to let you know. We had an exterminator come yesterday, and good news -- it wasn't an animal, just some old food gook that had dripped back into the motor of the fridge and was getting increasingly smelly, and I think the fridge motor was circulating the smell around the kitchen. The exterminator did some procedure to fumigate the smell, and B"H, we're now smell-free.
Please be sure to let me know how it goes with Auslander! Take copious notes, not only on what he says, but on how the audience deals with him -- that might be even more interesting. I just read an interview with him in "The Jewish Week." He's in therapy, but it seems to me he clearly needs more. His background is terribly sad, but I find his bitterness as an adult even sadder; lots of people come from tragic backgrounds and make some kind of peace with it but he is clearly still in the blaming stage.
