An old book read again Jun 29, 2009
it is a wonderful account of life as Taibo saw it during the Franco era. Some incredibly funny and touching writing. The man had a fantastic sense of humour.
I had the fortune of meeting Mr. Taibo on his reading tour through Mexico way back when this book came out. He spent an evening at my parents' home and made a drawing of himself toasting me and my sister that I still keep. I had the copy of this book that had the markings for the areas he read publicly, and when I moved away from my parents', I left it there.
It's still there, and it's -presumably - safe, but I wanted to read it again. As getting my mother to send me anything is an absolute drag, I am glad to have the book again.
