Reading progress update: I've read 31 out of 475 pages.

The Feast of the Goat - Mario Vargas Llosa, Edith Grossman

I'd just started an Irvine Welsh novel when I remembered that I have a meeting of my RL book club at the end of the month *slaps head*. With that in mind I decided I should really get started on this as I'm not getting a lot of time to read at the minute, due to writing commitments.


So far I'm really enjoying it. I love novels written from a duel perspective and this has the story of Urania, a woman who has returned to her home in the Dominican Republic, running alongside that of the dictator Rafael Trujillo during his reign, over thirty years earlier..


What has most impressed me so far is the quality of the writer and the fantastic evocation of place.
