My read of the month is called Juntacadáveres by Juan Carlos Onetti. It's a book from 1964 but I found it republished and I have to admit I bought it because of the beautiful cover. (I actually do judge a book by its cover!)
It's a dramatic story about a place called Santa Maria, where Junta (the main character) wants to open a public house but faces the resistance of the native people. I've only read a couple of chapters but it's definitely an interesting book to read before going to sleep!
