While I'm trying to pull together some thoughts on Galdós I'll post something about the book I read this weekend...
Twisted Spoon Press has just released an English translation of Bruno Jasieński’s novel I Burn Paris. Some background information and excerpts are provided in the links below:
Jasieński’s Wikipedia page
The journal Asymptote has posted the Afterword to the book by Soren Gauger (one of the translators of the novel) and a lengthy excerpt (most of Part 2, Chapter I). I highly recommend both links.
Anatol Stern’s Preface to I Burn Paris, from a 1957 edition of the book (also translated by Soren Gauger).
Update (23 Sep 2012): Lemon Hound has an Inter(re)view: I Burn Paris – A conversation with translator Soren A. Gauger
