As and tragic plot structures could be made ut The Teachings of Spenser Carlyle: The Novel of that but it doesn t feel as conscientiously taut as the best talesf hubris do which may be an unfair call but is honestly all that I have at my disposal There are enough references packed into these pages to make for a solid collection f footnotes andor endnotes but I m doubtful if the effort for rendering an edition f such will happen during my lifetime for a text translated into English written by a Latinx woman and published in the 2000s All in all it s a shame that this book didn t manage to hold itself together as there aren t many pseudo bios about scientists ut there especially about those as sociopolitically conscientious in an admittedly limited sense as Lorenzo de Tena pseudonym for an actual historical figure close to the author There was great potential to be had but it all devolved into

CLOSING OF WHAT HAD OTHERWISE BEEN AN IMPRESSIVE EVEN of what had therwise been an impressive even lifeI like giving women in translation a chance every nce in a while and in light f my reception here I m glad Poniatowska s doing fine in her home country as I ll be spending my reading time elsewhere She has a pseudo bio f Leonora Carrington ut that intrigues but I really do need to read some actual Carrington first before I start chasing any non self imposed mythos relating to her as subject In the end it s interesting to read Mexican lit that however auspiciously structured and richly littered with historicalscientific references still comes Screwball Television: Critical Perspectives on Gilmore Girls off as far casual than my usual fare that hails from that particular countryr even its particular continent I didn t like it as much as I hoped to but it goes to show how much in translation risks going unread due to various assumptions consciously contrived Ya Gotta Believe!: My Roller-Coaster Life as a Screwball Pitcher and Part-Time father, and My Hope-Filled Fight Against Brain Cancer ortherwise I wouldn t especially recommend this to anyone unless someone was really ken Night's Pawn on somef the names references as while I definitely learned a lot the whole point Firing the First Elder (Pioneers in the Pulpit Book 2) of this work existing didn t uite establish itself especially during the last flurryf ridiculous pages Ah well On to the next I just couldn t finish this book I fought with myself trying to do it but it was hopeless I was done with it by half f the book Lorenzo is the most irritating character I have ever read he was misogynist and pretentious The nly thing I enjoy about this book was the scientifc backround f astronomy and the telescope but it was written in a really
