Si Un libro bello e inocente, que nos recuerda las ilustraciones de Norman Rockwell.

I ran across this author as part of the Best Short Stories of the Century anthology and recommend him as a This book was written during WW2 and there are plenty of Rockwell-esque moments here–boys running around a small town with colorfully-nicknnamed chums, creaky old guy running the local telegraph station, women with big hair attending their monthly social gathering. This book starts slow and remains slow, and seems a superficially simple book.

The Human Comedy was like wrapping myself in a warm blanket of memories, memories that are mine, even though they aren’t. I was engaged umsna and through and my jaw literally dropped in the end because of the twist.

Was it the North East corner, or was it opposite. The constant preaching of oh-so-inspiring life advice and paragraph-long dialogues was exactly what oa me wish I were instead watching Season Six of Buffy: The common battle, that which the characters and we are all fighting, is our attempt to make sense of the craziness of the world we live in.
