Any kind of reader would be nice, but this is special: I’m trying to get hold of a book by Miguel Villanueva, El carnaval de Cádiz durante la Segunda República (1931-1936). Ensayo sobre un carnaval atrevido. I’ve tried without success to contact the publishers, Fundación Viprén, as well as Viprén itself, and, although the book was published this spring, it doesn’t seem to be on any of the online bookshops. So I’m looking for a Cadiz resident who is prepared to enter into a local history bookshop, buy the damn thing, and send it to me, whereupon I’ll refund the costs via bank transfer or Paypal or whatever. Talk to me here.
