The Aleph and Other Stories (Jorge Luis Borges, Cervantes prize, 1979). Full of philosophical puzzles and supernatural surprises, these stories contain some of Borges’s most fully realized human characters. Jacinto's extreme simplicity and Sanchez' distilled, luminous prose may prove burdensome to American readers (the book was a runaway best seller in Mexico) so many agonies are piled one on top of another that a kind of saturation of misery ensues. The Labyrinth of Solitude (Octavio Paz, Nobel prize, 1990).

Jacinto's extreme simplicity and Sanchez' distilled, luminous prose may prove burdensome to American readers (the book was a runaway best seller in Mexico) so many agonies are piled one on top of another that a kind of saturation of misery ensues. Relentless and oppressive. A brutal, searing story of prison life in latin America in which Sanchez uses the device of the ""found"" papers to reconstruct the fate of ""Jacinto"" serving a life sentence in the Penitentiary of San Luca off the coast of Costa Rica. Jacinto is an Innocent - an illiterate, ingenuous peasant hauled off in chains to this island of the damned; Dante's Inferno is, by comparison, a humane and civilized spot.

Thanks to JBP for hosting the London launch of Look the Other Way. Interesting people and questions about Policing, Politics and Corruption.

Excellent read. Having toured the now closed island prison, I had to read it.

this book is about seeing the hope in a hopeless place- inspirational and makes one feel fortuitous. If you find a copy, read it.
