Magical Realism: A Group
The Algonquin Roundtable (a group you'd like)
Wouldn't it be great to be part of a group to discuss literature, in this case particularly magical realism and Latin American literature? I thought so, so I started a group at Goodreads.com. Anyone can join. And then anyone can post recommendations of books, reviews, material about authors, you name it. This is a good way to find great books you never heard of before and probably don't have anyone else to tell you about. Want to join? Click this.
A group like this isn't as much fun as sitting in a cafe in Madrid to discuss these books with expats, including the ghost of Roberto Bolano, or even sitting with the usual subjects at nearby Ralph's Pretty Good Cafe with a latte, but for now, it'll have to do. Sorry to say, I'm not expecting a better offer than this group, at least not with this subject.
Join up. Maybe it'll be fun. And if it isn't, well, we can always delete and/or ignore it.
