Hello All, I am currently on a three week trip to Guatemala and thus this post will not have apostrophes or dashes because foreign keyboards have all the symbols mixed up. But posts will continue, from myself and select colleagues, so continue to check back in. As far as my reading adventures down here, I came down expecting to be able to find a cheap copy of Augusto Monterrosos short stories (famous Guatemalan short story writer), but none of the six bookstores I have visited have a copy. They all have copies of Miguel Ángel Asturias El Senor Presidente (Guatemalan who won the Nobel Prize for literature), but are charging $36 US dollars for it (!!!). What happened to cheap secondhand books in English abroad? Alas, alas.
