I don't know how I missed the Penguin Fortunata y Jacinta. I've been aware of the book for a long time. I think I would have bought it and read it while still in the U.S. if I'd found it. Who knows? At this time, it doesn't do me much good since it's not available on Kindle. I used to be able to receive packages here, but the last couple never arrived so.... Actually, the last one, which was an insignificant thing sent to test the waters, turned up back at my sister's house two days ago after six months in the wind.
I just finished The Known World, and while it never again got quite as good as the part I read a week ago today, it was still very nice, both interesting and enjoyable.
