It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


I'm deep in early-Jewish-literature land. I read Celestina last week and this week we are discussing Lazarillo de Tormes and soon, extracts from Don Quixote

Lazarillo de Tormes is an anonymously-written novella published just after Celestina, in 1499. It's lively and fun.

Quixote: The Novel and the World is author (and my course instructor) Ilan Stavans' appreciation and analysis of the classic novel. It's also lively and fun. So I'm having lots of fun reading right now.

Still on How Yiddish Changed America and How America Changed Yiddish, also by Stavans, coincidentally! I am very slow with audiobooks these days. Still also fun!
