It’s a good reminder of the power of stories and perceptions and the importance of knowing many of them. Reply Margot I was wondering whether I’d seen it before, maybe on your blog? Reply Not on my blog, José Ignacio, I’m sorry. I had not seen that before, Jose Ignacio, and I thought it was wonderful, so thank you very much. I have just discovered Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and she is my new literary heroine – I was knocked out by her book Americanah. Reply Thank you Moira. Reply So many of the fabulous stories coming out of Africa at the moment are doing so in the form of music/song. It’s wonderful, I think, to see these borders blurring. Not so much crime fiction, yes, true, but, well, y’know, um . . . Reply Thanks for your comment John. Certainly is off topic. Anyway, translated crime fiction also helps to overcome the danger of a single story. 🙂 Reply Certainly is off topic. Ha1 Yes, I know. I’d just been playing some Mayra Andrade and it seemed to tie in to Adichie’s comments. Or something. Fascinating Mayra Andrade. How do you like Cesaria Evora? My post https://jiescribano.wordpress.com/2011/12/17/cesaria-evora-in-memoriam/ Also OT. Reply Oh, that’s lovely. I must find more by her. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
