I am mortified and worried about having been misinterpreted: I LOVE English literature: shame on me, I am more knowledgeable of English than Spanish literature; and I LOVE old literature, I prefer books that have passed the test of time, although of course I like to experiment with novelties some times. So I was not complaining about Sterling's list, which, as I said, I would read joyfully.
Now, some of Steven's anti-Dickens sound very interesting, although I have the feeling that some of the others are politically correct stuff that I don't like. Isabel Allende: I hated the movie so much that I would be willing to give the novel a try (though my suspicion is that I won't like it). And I would never read any novel written by Poniatowska, Steven's Mexican selection. The woman is, in muy humble opinion, despicable, and a fraud (I hope she's not your friend, Steven). I will look for a Mexican female author translated to English, as a competitor with Poniatowska for our attention.
