I took a peek at the Amazon page for The Adventures and Misadventures of Maqroll by Alvaro Mutis and was surprised to find that the book has vaulted to #533 in their sales rankings (the book previously sported a ranking in the hundred thousands.) Now, I know that Amazon rankings are next to meaningless, but still, it’s pretty cool to know that my appearance on Weekend Edition Sunday sent readers looking to pick up the book. I don’t think they’ll be disappointed.

  1. Hello Max magee,

    have tried twice before to post a comment; liked your comments on NPR, have had Adventures of macqroll on my shelf for years unread, now will tackle it!

    Also your website is stimulating and fun. Good work. I'm wondering if you could give me some advice about setting up somethiing like this in the middle east where there is little or no freedom of speech or press.

    I'm going back in a week and wod lke ot get started on it. Could I contact you for advice?

    Thanks alot,

    Jim Dalglish
