What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, it is Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…

Reading…

Listening to…

Reading…

The Manolo is still reading the work of the Mark Helprin. His writing has the magnificent flow, with cadences which the Manolo can only characterize as classical in their sonority and power. And, yet, he is funny! To be the writer such as this is among the chief aspirations of the Manolo, well, that and to have magnificent shoes.

    I sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading all the Helprins & then let us know your favorite, because my aimless days might soon be required to coincide with WORK, & I maybe would not have time to fit all of them into my schedule while I read my page-a-day Proust, & of course, the new one by THE MANOLO!

    I read “Memoir from Antproof Case” when it first came out, and I LOVED it. Wish I had not given away my copy so I could read it again. Enjoy Mr. Helprin’s works and let us know your favorite!
