: 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.
