Culture Shock

Despite Spain's advanced age, the country only became a democracy in 1975 after a long hard struggle. The history of that struggle is commemorated in a new exhibit called The Art of Democracy: Fifty Years of Spain's Political Posters (1930s-1980s). The show is exactly what it says it is, marking roughly the period from the Spanish Civil War right up through the country's transition to democracy. The exhibit opens this weekend at UNM's Zimmerman library and will remain on display through Sept. 7. For details, call Teresa at 277-1010.

Book Review

Oily and Mean

Petroleum Man

Leon Tuggs is lord of all he surveys, mostly because he never leaves the bubble of his possessions. Tuggs is closing in on his goal of becoming a Petroleum Man, one of the godlike creatures who finally obliterates nature with a triumphant, globe-swaddling blanket of consumer goods. But it's lonely being a multi-billionaire if you can't wring admiration from your nearest and dearest.

Book Review



George Singleton's debut novel features a hero named Novel, two Irish cousins named James and Joyce and a baker named Maura-Lee who is famous for her Jesus Crust. You have to hand it to South Carolina's reigning poet laureate of the bizarre: He doesn't pussyfoot around with subtlety. He'd rather club us on the funny bone—again and again.
