it was amazing
bookshelves: lit-theory, about-books, latin-american
Read in December, 2014

Wise thoughts about reading and writing books by one of the twentieth-century's great novelists. I enjoyed the advice from Llosa as he is a good reader and the lessons he has learned are informative. They suggest books and authors that I may want to pursue while enhancing my enjoyment of authors I have already encountered. This book belongs on your shelf of "books about books" and keys to great writing from writers throughout both the ages and the world. The influences that made him a great novelist shine through as he passes his experience on to subsequent generations.
