  1. Alfredo Cayote says:

    Two Matadors is the greatest story! is it true? who could come up with something so epic? i highly recommend it – it really is a good read.

  2. Scott Skipper says:

    Antonio Castañeda de Castilla knows everything there is to know about bulls and women. As had been foretold by his gypsy wife, he meets a young American in the bull ring at Sevilla who he persuades—with copious amounts of rare wine—to record his biography. In the course of one night the old matador relates to his mesmerized chronicler the story of a remarkable life—a life of love lost, regained and lost again. He tells of a life brimming with lust, danger, and circuitous twists of fate and faith. Antonio is a twin, an indomitable spirit, a hero, a betrayer, a victim, an adventurer and a tireless voluptuary.

    This story has shades of Death in the Afternoon, Prince and the Pauper, and Amor en el Tiempo de Colera. Marcus McGee’s prose is phenomenal. I was hooked in the first paragraph.

    Oooh Ladies! If you like passion and sensual writing, get this book and schedule yourself some alone time. Sexy stuff, especially after the bath.

    I wanted to keep up my Spanish, so I bought the Spanish version, and I LOVED IT! Then I had to read the English version, and I LOVED IT. The prose is just excellent. In some places, it’s like reading poetry, except it’s telling a marvelous story at the same time.
