-> Juan Oregon, a man from Alicante (Spain), 47, announced last Friday that he was terminating the process of writing his first novel, which he has been working at since last January. The novel he has written is "LightInAugust", the immortal work published in 1932 by American author WilliamFaulkner.
-> "It is his first novel and he writes ‘Light in August’ by William Faulkner, nothing more, nothing less," the proud wife of this administrative assistant said to the press. Oregon, which has been already stated as the great promise of the Spanish letters, began his literary activity “unpretentiously" earlier this year.
-> "For Faulkner this was his seventh novel, however my husband has written it at his first try," insists the wife.
-> "Look, he could have written any work of [[TakeThat Terence Moix or anyone else’s mediocrity]], but no, he goes and writes a novel by Faulkner, William Faulkner. I love Faulkner and in this country we all feel genuine devotion by Faulkner," the woman reiterated, sparing no praise for her husband, who was something flushed.
-> The book, which is identical, word for word, the translation of "LightInAugust" Peter Leucona did for Goyanarte publishing in 1952, and that is being currently published by Alfaguara publishing, could mark the narrative of Spain just like Faulkner determined the evolution of American literature.
-> "The novel is exceptional, truly exceptional, something out of the ordinary," says Antonia Cifuentes, editor of Catedra publishing and one of the few people who had access to Juan’s manuscript.
-> According to her, the novel is as good as the one written by Faulkner but [[InTheOriginalKlingon with the added value that a Spanish man has been able to write]] the "[[UsefulNotes/GreatAmericanNovel Great American Novel]]" without leaving Alicante.
