ABOUT THE BOOKWhen I first read Don Quixote, I was fascinated by the protagonist who goes crazy after reading too many romance novels. Not only does he become completely immersed in the world of knights, ladies, and valor, he fancies himself a knight errant, as well. He creates a woman of purity and wonder from a plain peasant who doesnt know he exists. Despite his madness, Don Quixote is the ultimate romantic hero, so much so that he is a parody of himself. Though I adore the contemporary versions of the historical romance genre, Don Quixote reaches a place in the hero books that is untouched by any hero written about since. While the character of Don Quixote may be a bit off-kilter, his absolute dedication to an ideal love makes all other heroes look like the silly ones. Finding that absolute dedication in a character has forever changed the way I view characters in other books.MEET THE AUTHORJennifer McGuire has a BA in Literature and Film, and a MFA in Creative Writing. She is a college English Teacher in the Bay Area. Shes written and edited a long laundry list of things, and really enjoys seeing what people think and how they express it in words. She loves reading....and will read pretty much anything she can get her hands on.EXCERPT FROM THE BOOKDon Quixote essentially reads as observations by the main character of everyone surrounding him. Its a look into the mind of a man who wishes life to be something other than it is, and then lives according to that fantasy. The real actions come not from the characters so much as the interplay between Don Quixotes new mindset and the rest of the world.It was my great-uncle who gave me the book, and told me Cervantes liked to read romance. He told me that Cervantes wanted to write something that was reflective of that love of romance. After years of rereading the book and gleaning bits and pieces of Cervantes themes, it seems my great-uncle was on the mark.
