17 - Second Sight: Carlos Fuentes' Aura - Books of Some Substance

ūüéÉ You open your podcast feed and find a new episode released from The Books of Some Substance. It's rather late in the month, but what the hell. You look at the title, "Second Sight: Carlos Fuentes' Aura," and make a loose connection to the novel's creepy, devout¬†Se√Īora Consuelo. Later, after you listen to the entire episode, after you listen to David, Eric, and Nick discuss genre, substance, the ephemeral border between literature as entertainment and literature as intellectual pursuit, after some praise for Fuentes in general and this book in particular, after a handful of quotes are read, after some minds are changed, and, finally, after the final point is made regarding the value of second readings, you understand the title of the episode a little better. Maybe you will read the novel again. Maybe.¬†ūüéÉ You decide to follow the podcast at¬† INSTAGRAM¬†¬† ¬†FACEBOOK¬†¬† ¬†TWITTER¬†¬† You want to receive bad-ass artwork and hand-typed invitation letters and so you go to the website:¬†¬†http://www.booksofsomesubstance.com/¬†and sign up to receive both. ¬†
