Carlos Fuentes 1928 -

Today is Veterans' (Armistice) Day. It is also the birthday of Carlos Fuentes, the imaginative Latin-American author who is annually short-listed to receive the Nobel Prize for literature. Though he spent precious few years of his varied life in Mexico, he is considered a Mexican writer and a treasure.

Book collectors would do well to acquire pristine copies of his works. Surely they will appreciate when he is awarded the prize; and immediately upon his death.
