Welcome to the Whittemore circle, amigo!
Jean-Daniel (French translator of the Quartet)
: I canīt recall how I became to KNOW there was
: an Edward Whittemore! Maybe it was by just
: browsing around literature or bookstore web
: pages. Finally I bought a solid used copy of
: "Quinīs Shanghai" found through
: Alibris. I finished the book last night,
: absolutely delighted. Just ordered Sinai
: Tapestry from Amazon and canīt wait to start
: reading. I am a Spanish speaking person, but
: an avid English reader. Whittemore book was
: really outstanding and different. The
: unusual plot is fun and intriguing and the
: writing style sounds like poetry to me.
: Whish these books were available in Spanish
: to widely recommend them to my friends! What
: a difficult task a translation would be to
: make justice to the original... Thank you
: for this page. It is great! And I apologize
: for my English. I am sure that reading more
: Whittemore will help me a lot improving it.
