comment for Brooklyn
The article on 60s-70s lit. was good, in that you included a very wide variety of stuff, but it seems like you should explain a bit more what all those books have in common, other than having been published during the period. I also recommend Slouching Toward Bethlehem (1968) by
Joan Didion, a book of essays about the 60s.
You also mentioned a Mario Vargas Llosa novel being published in Spain --it's probably also important to mention that he's Peruvian.
