Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 985 comments Platero y yo is a sort of classic of Spanish literature, mostly unknown unread and BURIED in the Engl-speaking world. [JRJ's data on goodreads could use some librarian-shaped attention]


message 2: by Kalliope (new)

Kalliope | 15 comments I wish to draw attention to a book and author that seems forgotten, even if the author got a Nobel Prize and even if in his country he is very well known but unread..

In the English-speaking segment of GR it has very few reviews, so our gROUP host has qualified it as BURIED.

I should reread it and write mine. My rating is a five.

It is recommended for animal lovers, whether these are children, or grown-ups.

And to support the book, my car is called Platero. I only buy my cars of silver color so that I can call them Platero... So, it is always Platero and I.

Warning: it may make you cry.
