Sorry, folks, I’ve been MIA from the blog but I got a new novel by Castellanos Moya through interlibrary loan, and I can’t tear myself away.
It never ceases to warp my mind. El Salvador has had one shitty deal after another in what concerns history, economy, politics, and even nature. The country hasn’t caught a break since forever. And yet Salvadorans go and come up with this absolutely sensational quality of writing. While some other folks, who by all measures are more fortunate than Salvadorans, haven’t produced any art worth a crap for 80 years.
