Pablo Medina's Cubop City Blues

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Pablo Medina talks about his novel, Cubop City Blues, set in a New York City shaped by jazz masters, refugees, and storytellers. A nearly blind storyteller tells his ailing parents imaginative stories populated by both well-known musical figures like Chano Pozo and Jelly Roll Morton along with invented characters.

What a nice take on Spanish vs. English in philosophical discourse. Didn't Mr. Lopate recently have a guest who advocated the line that the US is the most philosophical country? . . . Nice counterpoint here.
