of the new collection of essays by Mario Vargas Llosa (google translation in English, original in French
link via the Literary Saloon
). The book is not available in English. It is a pity that the English language world is bereft of many of the writings of this great Peruvian storyteller
Marquez, his rival of sorts, finds mention in the collection:
Marquez is treated for what he is: a writer able … to realise in memory, the imagination or the control of the men a “multiple and oceanic” world.
Even in bad, machine translation, the words (“multiple and oceanic”) are mesmerizing.
