Again a Succesful Bookhunt

The hunt is the thing. During my vacation in Aruba I came across Gioconda Belli’s novel El infinito en la palma de la mano in hardcover. You won’t believe it, the book from the library I’m reading right now. So naturally I bought it.  It’s the magical story about the original human beings. The fascination with the first man and woman on earth has inspired humanity in may ways.
In this book Gioconda Belli entertains us with her own fascination and inspiration on the bible’s Adam and Eve. How the life of these two innocent, brave, compelling first person must have been. How the universe was, life in the beginning etc.etc.

Other novels I acquired are Junot Díaz La breve historia y maravillosa vida de Óscar Wao [Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao] and Cristina García’s Las caras de la suerte [Handbook to Luck]. Both translated from English.
