Helmut posts this photo of Spanish writer Juan Goytisolo(State of Siege) apropo of an NYT article about him. He also notes his(Prof H's) upcoming anthology On Torture(2007) which will feature a selection from Goytisolo. All this time I was visiting phorenesisiacal, readily offering opinions on this and that, blithely unaware that H was Doctor H. Now I feel like something of a boob. Nevertheless, I thought that posting this image here today was appropriate, since today is genocide remembrance day in Armenia, a weighty topic that dovetails with some of Goytisolo's literary concerns.
