Paramo in Print
A week ago Slate published a wonderfully comprehensive article by Jim Lewis on Juan Rulfo's Pedro Paramo, (read it here), our book club selection from last August. Mr. Lewis consistently publishes some of the best articles on the web about forgotten/ignored/new books, and we have very little to add but to plug Rulfo's collection of short stories --The Burning Plain: and Other Stories-- and second Jim's opinion that this one of a kind masterpiece is not to be missed.
