it was amazing
Read in April, 2010

Cervantes knows what I like, and what I like is TALKIN' DOGS. Definitely more straightforwardly picaresque than 'Don Quixote' (which is the only other thing by Cervantes I've read) with a surprising and somewhat unsettling turn towards grim diabolism towards the end. I don't want to make a monument out of a weird little novella about dogs with bad troubles, but I was a little fascinated by the fact that, fantastic or no, Cervantes still chose to center his narrative among the most down-and-out of subaltern groups.
