Literary Landmarks
requests?

Hi followers! It’s been a long time since I’ve last updated this blog, but I’m going to make an effort to revive it. Are there any requests you have for regions/time periods you’d like featured? (like south american writers, japanese writers, parisian writers from the 1920s, etc)

Leave a comment here or send me a message!

Café Tortoni, a coffeehouse in Buenos Aires, Argentina located at Avenida de Mayo 825. It was opened in 1858 by a French immigrant and named Tortoni after a Parisian cafe with the same name. Its decor was inspired by fin de siecle cafes and has been named one of the most beautiful cafes in the world. It was a popular haunt for Jorge Luis Borges and has been visited by Frederico Garcia Lorca as well.

“[H]is mind went back to the first few years after the war and to a crumbling block of Bethune Street, in that part of New York where the gentle western edge of the VIllage flakes off into silent waterfront warehouses, where the salt breeze of evening and the deep river horns of night enrich the air with a promise of voyages.”

Bethune Street in Richard Yates’s Revolutionary Road, one pin on the New York Times Book Review’s Literary Map of New York.

Super cool!!
