BookHunter

Hey I recently start blogging please check it out? :D

Thanks so much Cath--I must give his work a try sometime! I am always amazed when I see others who are able to write in a language other than their own. There really is a sense of dislocation and no doubt offers a very unique perspective on a culture!

Danielle

Thanks for the link BookHunter--will check out your blog--good luck getting started and I am sure you will find the book blogging community very welcoming (and no doubt dangerous for your wallet!).

Oh wow! And now I am going to have to read Abdolah, especially My Father's Notebook. Thanks Cath! And thank you too Danielle!

I have added him to my list of must reads, too. I see he is a New Directions author like Cesar Aira! I knew he sounded like a 'quality' writer, but they are really known for publishing excellent fiction.

As a guest blogger I can understand very well how exciting it must be for you to start blog. Wishing you many readers.

I now wonder what his voice will be like in translation. So far I have only read an excerpt.

Yes I would recommend to first read My Father's Notebook, too. It was such a wonderful experience to write these guestposts.
