Great posts Mr. Esposito.
I’ve got news for you from Spain: this fall, Mondadori will be publishing the new Fresán book. It is called ‘El fondo del cielo’ and it’ll be a science fiction story. I hugely loved all Fresan’s books, but this is the first new work in six years, but, he has corrected and expanded all his previous works except Esperanto and ‘Trabajos manuales’ (an early collection of non fiction).

THE SURRENDER

The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


LADY CHATTERLEY'S BROTHER

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


THE LATIN AMERICAN MIXTAPE

5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
