This week, I got the email below from Jose and I have been reading a mixture of Hemingway, Homer and Allende. In 'Winner Takes Nothing' by Hemingway there are some wonderful stories. Quite gritty but I found something new this week, I found a real feel for the struggle of life in his books, something more than the old hedonistic love of life. 'The natural history of the dead' is a wonderful story about how he has reflected on the sight of dead bodies in the battlefield and it is experimental in that it starts like a wildlife program and ends as a story. I don't have anything to comment about the the other writers, they are very good perhaps something will come up next week.
