I was only in the bookshop for a few minutes, honestly…. I wasn’t even looking for anything new. It was going to be a classic hit. Get in. Make your purchase. Get out. Nobody else gets hurt, OK?

Then I go and browse in the ‘Fiction in Translation’ bays. And there he is, just lying in wait: Rafael Reig. [sp]

Spain’s new kid on the block, published (in agreeably off-format editions) by Serpent’s Tail. I got away from him this time. But next time, who knows?
