On To His Long Home
Of course Tuesday is also N@B (7pm at Meshuggah Cafe 6269 Delmar, St. Louis, MO. 63130) with guests Gordon Highland and Caleb J. Ross from Kansas City, Kevin Lynn Helmick from Chicago and representing the River City Mark W. Tiedemann. This'll be one to remember. Not your average audacity even by N@B standards. I believe you will be certifiably crazy if you do attend. So, I expect to see you there. And please, everybody keep their clothes on this time.
At Ransom Notes a couple days ago I wrote about Manuel Vazquez Montalban whose Pepe Carvalho books have been reprinted recently by Melville House. His leftist leanings got him a government room under Francisco Franco in the early 1960s. I'm reading Enemies: A History of the FBI by Tim Weiner right now, and it's got me wondering how he would've been treated in my country during the same period.
