New Year's Book Resolutions: Emily

Whenever I think of reading "Don Quixote" by Miguel De Cervantes I feel like J. Alfred Prufrock ("'Do I dare?" and 'Do I dare?'"). But, since almost every Spanish language writer seems to write in the shadow of Cervantes, (Borges' "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote," made me want to read it more than anything), it's time to stop being such a Prufrock, eat the peach, unroll my trousers, and shut those damn mermaids up.
