''I read in English and Spanish so the stack of books on my nightstand towers high above my digital clock radio. From the current pile, I'm cherishing Martha Gellhorn's witty Travels With Myself and Another. The `another' in the title was husband Hemingway. Love the tale of their trip to China -- `another' drinking and complaining about the lack of good hotels and bars, Gellhorn doing the heavy lifting and reporting. No surprise she left him after five years of marriage. Gellhorn was the real thing: war correspondent, novelist, short-story writer, playwright, star of a well-traveled life -- my literary hero.''
-- FABIOLA SANTIAGO, author of Reclaiming Paris
Santiago appears at 8 p.m. Thursday at Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables, to talk about Siempre París, the Spanish edition of Reclaiming Paris.
