Such passion for literature, Gonzalo Rojas! There’s also that fascinating story behind the publication of The Snow of the Admiral: Quite a feat for an author who spent a forty-five year career publishing not novels but poetry.
The New York Review Books edition of The Adventures and Misadventures of Maqroll is ideal – in addition to all seven novellas published together in English for the first time as one book, also included is an informative introductory essay written by Francisco Goldman, himself a celebrated novelist and friend of the author. In his IntroductionMr. Mutis told Francisco Goldman directly: And it isn’t that you write like Dickens, but rather that when you read Dickens, you feel an imaginative energy which you use to your own ends.
