Best Spanish-Language Bookstore - 2001
Rosario walked down the creaky stairs in search of her friends. They were close, she knew. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. Blink. Open. She was right! There they were, neatly lined up in the LIBRERIA HISPANICA's wooden shelves, waiting for her to greet them. José Donoso, Silvina Ocampo, Guillermo Cabrera Infante, Miguel de Unamuno, Gustavo Adolfo Bequer, Julio Cortázar, Vicente Huidobro, Javier Marias, Juan José Millas. It even had translations of Edgar Allan Poe, Virginia Woolf, and André Breton. The conversations that day were endless, the books ordered invaluable, Rosario's glee unmatchable.
