gabriel garcia marquez...

has a new book out... he's the author who brought us 100 years of solitude... i'm convinced that it is one of the greatest books ever written. and NO, i didn't read it because it was on oprah's fucking book club. i read it BEFORE she had it on there...

that's right. i'm a fucking trendsetter.

at any rate, his new book is out... en espanol... why the fuck does it take the translator a whole year to translate? the english version isn't coming out until 9/05. wtf? what in the FUCK? not only that, but it's only 112 pages. COME ON!!!!

unfortunately, my spanish is so bad, i couldn't even remember the title of the new book. that is sad. i guess i could babelfish the whole thing, but it'll lose something in the translation, i'm sure.

gawd.

that's okay. i'm pretty far behind in reading right now. i have 2 thick ass books to read... and a ton of smaller ones... i'm still annoyed, though.

Oh thats right, his new book is titled "Memoria de Mis Putas Tristes."

And I think the translation is "Memories of My Melancholy Whores." But I'm not sure.
