    I'm glad they didn't put the literal title in English... Thanks for posting this. Interesting to note that in Spain, "negro" is used colloquially for someone to whom literary work is farmed out, or somebody who writes somebody else's papers for school, etc. Agatha Christie didn't know what she was getting into.

    I look forward to reading the blog -- several of the names are new to me.
