*Concha García. Acontecimiento. 2008. 130 pp.

I got this in the mail today, recently published by Tusquets in Barcelona, and so I read it right away. It is the same exploration of the tedium of everyday life we've seen in CG before. The title means "happening," "event." What does it mean for something to happen? For nothing to happen? I liked the poem "Como un decálogo," with its rejection of "el horario que avanza / en un universo cerrado" (the schedule {sequence of hours} advancing / in a closed universe]
