CERVANTES BOOK TOUR.

Coming soon to a venue near you: Miguel de Cervantes will be promoting Don Quixote! (Thanks to Brecht for the tip.)


Addendum. It occurs to me that Harper-Collins will probably be taking this embarrassing page offline at some point, so I should reproduce it here for the benefit of posterity:

  1. Yes. Well. Um. Wow.
    That one just leaves me kinda speechless. Is there a windmill in the house?

  2. Seems that if you go deeper into the website, here, for example: http://www.harpercollins.com/global_scripts/product_catalog/book_xml.asp?isbn=0060934344 you will get a chance to sign up to be notified about his “next book.” Here is the reminder for that treat:
    “Don’t miss Miguel de Cervantes’s next book. Sign up for AuthorTracker!”
    I wonder what he is working on now?

  3. Alex Smaliy says:

    I’m sure he’s trying to wring another translation deal out of his agent. You know how those money-grubbing “classics” are…

  4. That reminds me of this performance-art/hoax thingy where they stage a meet-n-greet with Anton Chekov in a Barnes and Noble.

  5. I heard a rumor that Mozart was composing some new stuff, but it turned out that what they meant was that he was decomposing.

  6. My goodness! Well, since it will be very easy for me to go to the Munk Centre on May 11, I think I had better do so. I promise to report back to you on the condition of that excellent gentleman, Mr. Cervantes, and on what he has to say for himself after all these years.

  7. Please do!

  8. Of course, the other funny thing here is that the Globe & Mail isn’t published on Sundays….

  9. I can’t believe it! He did’t bother to do any promotion in Spain, and we are spending a lot of money this year in his honour! Not fair.

  10. My report, as promised.

  11. Ah, many thanks! It’s a pity you weren’t able to stay; I’m sure Cervantes would have shown for at least the drinks after the speeches.

Speak Your Mind
