>>7602994 Latin America is what I'm mainly talking about. Never read a Latin American novel I didn't want to hurl against the wall, that wasn't a total slog. Cortezar, Lispector, Neruda, Marquez, Neruda, Puig, all shit. Reccomend me someone my brain will like.
>>7602956 Unamuno was not bad of we talk about Spain. But yeah, Spain is a fucking shithole from every perspective desu. When it comes to literature, I guess the main reason is dumb provincialism because we wuz empire, we wuz cervantes and muh most spoken language so no one fucking cares about foreign authors
>>7603050 At this point I'm only "checking out" spanish books if you can give me a title and tell you why it moved you or changed your life. After Hopscotch I have little to no patience for those people

>>7603055 Check some of Arlt's short stories or Seven Madmen. Last one is kinda similar to Demons by Dosto (I read Arlt before Demoms). It's fine, like pre-existentialism and with technophile pseudo-fascists instead of nihilists. If you wanted to know more about Stavrogin from Demons, the main character can be pretty similar, but he ain't the cold charming byronesque motherfucker Stavrogin is, he's pityful. If you liked Demons and it has been a long time since you read it, and you're a nerd about secret societies and shit, Seven Madmen (and its sequel "Flamethrowers") could be funny
