Juan Goytisolo has a brother named Luis Goytisolo? I didn’t have a clue.
The Goytisolo name was my hope for the Nobel, because i’m a childish bastard who will root for the only author he’s read. I like Murakami and Pynchon, but it feels weird to root for them for a Nobel Prize in Literature. Pynchon’s a holdover from my wacky years of reading Kurt Vonnegut and Robert Anton Wilson novels, and Murakami is… hmmm… someone i read when i want to go on cruise control.
Fromw aht Literary Saloon has posted of brother Luis though, Juan still seems more interesting.
(and a third brother? José Agustín Goytisolo? Also a writer? Very literary family there.)
