Kessler Review of Apocryphal Lorca

I guess it's the day of the duende.

Stephen Kessler, an eminent translator, has reviewed my book for Translation Review. He kindly sent it to me in the mail. It's not on line, and I am not going to type it all in here, but I'll eventually post some snippets of it in the Critical Reaction page to the right. "Insightfully provocative and original." It's a positive review, and he thought one of my most controversial points, the comparison of Lorca with Frank O'Hara, was "shrewd." I'm going to try to scan it to send it my publisher. Maybe I can convince them to put out this book in paperback.
