Reading Connection

I read this very obscure Spanish novel last week, and now I’m desperate to talk about it. But it’s been silenced by critics for 50 years, so now nobody knows it exists. There’s nobody for me to talk to about this novel.

Then the program of my February conference is published. And guess what? The guy who speaks after me on my panel… will be speaking about this very novel.

I’ve only ever seen this scholar on a screen but we have this weird thing going where we end up reading the same books at the same time completely by accident. And now it happened again.

A reader’s life is full of the strangest surprises.
