the guardians by ana castillo.


eighth and final book for my immigrant lit class. messy story; sumptuous prose.
i'm going to pick up a book of her poems next thursday to celebrate the end of the spring semester.

alex lend me his copy of the glass castle. it came with high praise. i just finished it. eh. i don't mind being at the mercy of someone's memory if there's humor, sensitivity, passion, and/or introspection involved. i do mind it if the presentation is terribly sterile. give me a *little* more than a factual account of your truth. this book read like a medical report of a failed surgical procedure.

i have about 40 pages of "confederacy of dunces" left and time for one, perhaps two, more book(s) before the spring semester takes over my brain. nothing in my disgustingly large unread stash appeals. recommendations?
