19 - La Chingada Muerte: Carlos Fuentes' The Death of Artemio Cruz

December 20, 201753 min
On this episode David and Eric are joined by Frida Pulido, an active and engaging member of the Books of Some Substance bookclub, to discuss Carlos Fuentes' The Death of Artemio Cruz.  David questions the value of reading about such a despicable protagonist for such an extended page count, Eric finds humanity in where we all begin and eventually end, Frida schools us in the variety and elasticity of the colloquial word "chingada," and we all find plenty of substance in Fuentes' writing and philosophizing on death, memory, pain, and time.  Find yourself a copy of the book and give us a listen.    Here is where you can find us:  http://www.booksofsomesubstance.com/  And here: INSTAGRAM   FACEBOOK    TWITTER    ☮
