  1. This collection sounds good. Do you have recommended reading list anywhere online, outside of your syllabi? I am interested in seeing your recommendations. I like syllabi as well. I am impressed with House of Order and admire the style, voice, diction, and symbolism so far. Other projects have pulled me away, but I hope to  return to it soon. It’s captivating. It’s tight and evocative. The cover, which I realize is most times out of the author’s control, reminds me of Frida Kahlo, whom I love. That’s interesting in the context of being a Latino work, though I haven’t unpacked that image yet in relation  to the world and movement of the tales; indeed, there might not be an intended relationship. The cover is typically secondary to the work anyway. I look forward to finishing it soon.

    1. Thank you for the link. I must read One Hundred Years of Solitude. How I have never read it escapes me. It’s one of those I have always wanted to read, but haven’t. Same with Paul Bowles The Sheltering Sky. One Hundred Years shows up on so many all time best lists and is often described as a masterpiece, if not a “perfect” novel. I will definitely use this list to update my wish list. Thanks again.
