Rewatch the film as I seen this online to stream I will be reading this soon then watch the film again .The second book is a favourite writer of mine the late Tomas Eloy Martinez an earlier book The Peron novel ,I have reviewed Santa Evita and purgatory by him on here before ,so I had this also on a list of books to read ,a mad cap look at Peron on his 1973 return to Argentina ,this book also nicely fits into Richard’s Argentinian and Uruguayan reading challenge from September .What books have you got this week ?

    As it happens, I did get a book today – Andres Neuman’s Things We Don’t Do, which he’d very kindly signed despite the fact I couldn’t get to his reading at Word Power books in Edinburgh. Thanks to them for arranging that!

    Several – as featured here: – and this is at a time when I’m not meant to be buying books!

      Me too, I’ve told myself not to buy any more, at least not until I’ve got space on the shelves to put them.
      But I did buy one – just a tiny little one – it’s called Post-Modernism, a Graphic Guide – it’s one of a series of books that explains ‘isms’ in art and literature with graphics and cartoons.
      And a publisher sent me a collection of short stories but since I’m interested in novels, I’m not very excited about that…

        It’s just impossible not to buy them – especially when your library doesn’t stock them – and then I happened to be in London yesterday and just happened to pass Charing Cross Road – *sigh* ……..

    No purchases this week, Stu, but I am going to join Richard’s Argentinian and Uruguayan lit fest…
