Emron's Choices for Next Round

Here are four titles that interest me. They are all Latin American novels (in translation) that are more contemporary than my usual reading/teaching in the region. 2 are by Brazilians, 1 is by a Chilean, and the other by an Argentine. Enjoy.

Cobbler Thursday at South Fork Park

Let's go to South Fork Park Thursday night. I'll arrive at or before 7 and look for a spot across the creek and get a fire going. I'll bring cobbler and ice cream.

If the ginger beer aficionados are so inclined, they may sink their drinks in the creek the same way the Macleans of Missoula would.

FYI - don't count on cell phone reception up there.
