The 75-year-old Spanish writer Juan Goytisolo is profiled by Fernanda Eberstadt in today's New York Times magazine (via Rockslinga).

Goytisolo's most recent book in English-translation was The Blind Rider (Serpent's Tail), which I've yet to read. I can, however, heartily recommend State of Siege and The Marx Family Saga. For those interested to learn more, this Guardian profile from August 2000 is good background readingĀ and there is an excellent interview over at the Center for Book Culture.
