Araceli Ardon

Mexican writer Araceli Ardon has just launched a new website in both English and Spanish versions. It includes information about her books, as well her articles on other writers, including Fuentes, Mastretta, and Pamuk. Check it out at And she's blogging! I was delighted to be able to translate her razor-sharp short story, "It is Nothing of Mine," set in Queretaro, Mexico--- which appears in my anthology, Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion. I talked about her story on my interview with National Public Radio--- and the NPR website has the entire story on-line. More anon.
