#Bookreview NO IS NOT ENOUGH: DEFEATING THE NEW SHOCK POLITICS by Melanie Klein (@NaomiAKlein) A rallying cry towards unity, care, and humanism.

I had the pleasure of translating the fabulous novel Carta a Charo (LETTER TO CHARO) by Spanish author Estrella Cardona Gamio, a while back. It is an epistolary novel that follows the friendship of two women who’ve known each other since they were young but became separated due to personal circumstances and have continued to write to each other, although perhaps they don’t have much in common anymore. It is beautifully observed and nuanced, a short novel that I recommend to all of us who miss the time not-long-past when we wrote ‘real’ letters.

The good news is that the novel is FREE from the 11th to the 15th of July, inclusive and I had to share the author’s post with you. (It has bits in Spanish and English but you’ll find the all-important links.

Do not hesitate and take the chance to check this fabulous novel (that I read well before I had the chance to translate it). I’m working on another book by Estrella (this time non-fiction), so there’s more to come.
