To distract myself from everything bad, I enrolled in an online course on the contemporary political novel in Spain. The course is 2 hours a week for 3 months. What attracts me to the course is that in a reading list of 22 authors I only know two. You’d think it’s impossible to find Spanish authors I don’t know but yes, it is. This isn’t my kind of literature (too postmodern) but I want to expand my horizons.
The course starts in early April, so now I need to plough through the reading list. I’m actually really excited about this. I loved being a student and now I can briefly go back to being one. I used to be a mega pest as a student. Let’s see if time has taught me anything.
