Allmänna fakta



I enjoyed this, but after some years since reading it, I don't recall enough to discuss it.

I think incessantly of death, of oblivion, how nothing lasts, not even memory when the one who remembers is gone… 

I remember nothing. I remember everything. I believe everything. I believe nothing.

If there were ever any doubt that Ozick is a master storyteller, here’s your proof.

Do yourself a favor and skip the blurb; don’t read the synopsis. Let Petrie’s fictional monologue take you over; let yourself get to know him, his regrets, his idiosyncrasies, his losses, his attempts at connection with others. 

Imagine an interior monologue—shaped just as America shakes off the first half of the twentieth century—that is an examination of the shackles of memory, a questioning of who "owns" whose history and legacy, and a laying bare of the guilt involved in carrying your own and others' stories into the next generation.

Imagine this told with the baroque stylings of James within a Proustian project of aging, of facing both one’s mortality and the death of an age, wherein Dreyfus makes an appearance and for which fans of Bolano’s slim monologues and Marias’s own Jamesian verbosities will salivate at the mouth. 

Do yourself another favor and read this all in one gulp.

I didn’t really understand it, but I liked it anyway, it was very enjoyable to read, the writing was almost like poetry. My first Ozick novel, I’ll have to try another.

Una mujer de mediana edad parece andar sin rumbo por las calles de París en una tarde de calor asfixiante de finales de julio de 1952. Finalmente se sienta en un bar, pide un zumo y pregunta al camarero si por casualidad conoce a un tal Julian. No es la primera vez que lo hace, pero nadie recuerda a ese chico norteamericano de pelo rubio y aspecto desaliñado, que un buen día dejó su casa de California para viajar por Europa e instalarse en París, lejos de un padre intransigente y una madre que se ha refugiado en la locura para aliviar el deber de vivir. Quien busca y pregunta es su tía Bea, dispuesta a llevárselo de vuelta y hacer de él un hombre de provecho, pero cuando finalmente la mujer descubra el paradero de Julian, habrá algo insólito esperándole: otros cuerpos, otras voces, reclamándole una nueva versión del amor. Lejos de su tierra y abrumada al principio por el desorden que aun arrasa Europa tras la guerra, Bea ahora quiere comprender, y lo que había empezado como un simple viaje acaba siendo una lección de sabiduría.… (mer)
