A client of mine has quoted part of the book by Jose Luis Sampedro (translated into another language), and I can't seem to find a any evidence that it's been translated into English, though there are editions in several other languages. Anyone know for sure?

Sorry, you're quite right. Wrong author.

Thanks Jack- Dec 4, 2009

however, this one seems to be a completely different book, rather than a translation of the Sampedro novel.

Thanks everyone! Dec 5, 2009

A client of mine used a few lines of the book as an epigram, and I was hoping there was an actual English version. Now I'm forced to get creative on a Saturday.
