A morning quote

Caracol Beach era un lugar tan conservador que los lecheros aún repartían puerta por puerta los litros del preciado líquido, tradición perdida en estos tiempos frívolos donde la vieja costumbre de hacer favores no está aceptada por algunos.

Caracol Beach was a place so conservative that milkmen still delivered door-to-door liters of the precious liquid, a lost tradition in these frivolous times where the old custom of doing favors is not accepted by some.

– Eliseo Alberto, Caracol Beach, co-winner of the 1998 Premio Alfaguara


Decided to start my Premio Alfaguara re-read a few days early and so far, I think that's a very wise thing to do.  This book is also available in English translation, if any want to tackle it on their own.

Re-reading Premio Alfaguara winners is a great idea; there are so many good read, and Caracol Beach is one of the best.

I agree, as this book is even better the third time around!
