These Can Serve Double Duty:
"Reading the World" And Latino Books Month!

by Ron Hogan

Tonight, Gregory Rabassa will be reading from his memoir at the Instituto Cervantes. This is the guy who brought English-language readers Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and Julio Cortázar's Hopscotch, and he might read from those or other books that he's translated as well as from If This Be Treason, which NYTBR praised this weekend. Tomorrow, it's Edith Grossman, the acclaimed translator of Don Quixote, speaking at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute.
