One of the better lines I've read in recent weeks

From Roberto Arlt's "Escritor Fracasado" ("Failed Writer")

-- ¡Abajo los conejos de la literatura!

("Down with the rabbits of literature!")

Something about that imagery just amuses me right now.

Anything of a similar vein that's entertained you in recent weeks?

Might have something to do with your obsession with small furry animals...

Not "obsession," but fear! Fear of the squirrels! They are vicious creatures!

Larry, I was sort of referred here by E.L. Fay a long time ago and just wanted to tell you that any friend of E.L. Fay and fan of Roberto Arlt is cool with me! I just posted on Arlt's El juguete rabioso over on my blog, so I'll look forward to seeing what you have to say about him in your upcoming posts. What a great writer that guy was, for sure!

I haven't yet read that book, Richard, but I do believe I shall add that to my Amazon cart! Thanks, and yes, based on El jorobadito alone, he was among the best.
