Is this a new trend? Are countries and cities one by one getting the #thomasbernhard treatment? If it is indeed the case, then #castellanosmoya should get the prize of the trailblazer of such a literary movement. I’m trying in this account to read books that #transgress and challenge the given nationalistic, preconceived and sacrosanct ideas be it here in the US where I live or #elsalvador where #horaciocastellanosmoya is from or just about anywhere. This isn’t a miss universe-like account or a UNESCO sponsored party. I’m not here to make you feel better about your own country. Hence my utmost admiration for this outstanding #hereticand #incendiary book which admirably follows in the footsteps of #bernhard It’s by all means difficult for any society of group to confront issues, different opinions or #dissent specially in this #crude and #brutal way. But I think writing is certainly at its best when books enjoy unconditional and unequivocal #freedomofexpressionregardless of how strongly you might disagree with its premise. #highlyrecommended #revulsion#thomasbernhardinsansalvador#literaturasalvadoreña #elsalvador#newdirections #elasco #notapoligizing
