"The best history book at the year"-Felipe Fernandez-Armesto. Times Literary Supplement (UK)."A masterpiece of twenty-first-century European Literature."--Jordi Gracia, El Pais.In February 1981, Spain, still emerging from Franco's shadow, was in the process of electing a new prime minister. On the day of the vote in Parliament, while the session was being filmed by TV cameras, a band of right-wing soldiers burst in with automatic weapons, ordering everyone down. Only three men defied the order. For thirty-five minutes, as bullets flew and cameras rolled, they stayed in their seats.Javier Cercas originally set out to write a work of fiction about this pivotal event but determined it had already gained an air of myth, or, through the annual broadcast of video clips, had at least acquire the fictional taint of reality television. Instead, Cercas employs vivid descriptions of that archival footage to frame a true narrative of the attempted coup, which he comes to understand as a last gasp of the bloody civil war four decades earlier.Traversing the line between history and art, Cercas creates an incisive literary inquest into national myth, personal memory, political spectacle, and reality itself. His account of a watershed modent in Spain's history is a contemporary masterpiece of Spanish literature."With this noval, Javier Cercas takes his place in the select group at the forefront of Spanish literature."-Roberto Bolano."A masterly parable of political violence, of suffering, but also, and decisively, of the strange locic of compassion and healing ... [Soldiers of Salamis] should become a classic."-George Steiner."This book is magnificent ... One of the best I've read in a long time."-Mario Vargas Llosa, El Pais --Book Jacket.… (mer)

Un relato vibrante, tenso y pormenorizado que empieza leyéndose como una novela policíaca y acaba leyéndose como una novela de terror. ( )

How fascinated can you be by an obscure event (a failed coup de etat in Spain in 1981)? Quite a lot, it turns out. And yes, I followed along, all the way to page 437.

Dat alles leidt tot die vertoning in het parlement, met slechts drie mannen die openlijk weerstaan aan de coupplegers: Suárez zelf, zijn vicepremier en de leider van de communisten. De anatomie van een moment beschrijft dat ene moment waarop Suárez, gezeten in zijn premierstoel, achterover leunt terwijl de kogels rond zijn oren fluiten en bijna alle parlementairen zijn weggedoken onder hun stoelen. Maar vooral ook is dit het verhaal van het ontstaan van een democratie, met vallen en opstaan, eigenhandig geboetseerd door een politicus die daar weinig dank voor in de plaats kreeg.

I read this shortly after Soldados de Salamina, and was struck by how differently Cercas approaches the "non-fiction novel" in the two cases. Soldados is a book with a closely-focussed plot and a very small group of characters, in which the author and the business of researching and writing the book plays a prominent part; in Anatomía there is a huge (all-male) cast of politicians, soldiers, courtiers and spies brought in to help us try to make sense of what happens to prime minister Alfonso Suarez in one short moment of the famous TV footage of the attempted coup of the 23rd of February 1981, taking as his premise a remark of Borges about historical events being defined in a single moment.

Cercas argues that our recollection of events does not make a clear distinction between fact and fiction, and that even our famous ability to remember "where we were when we heard about..." is false: thousands of people in Spain distinctly remember having seen the events of the 23rd live on television, but the parliamentary session was only being broadcast live on radio, and the famous TV footage was not shown until the following day, when it was all over. I can understand that: before reading the book I had a clear memory of seeing it on the British TV news and being concerned for the future of the fragile post-Franco democracy, but now that I think about it objectively it seems very unlikely that I saw it until well after it was all over. In February 1981 I was living in college, and rarely, if ever, came anywhere near a TV set. I probably saw the still picture of Lt-Col Tejero with his silly tricorn hat, moustache and sub-machine gun on the front page of a newspaper on the 24th. I'm sure Cercas is right that our awareness of history - even recent history - is basically just a set of stories we tell ourselves, and that it makes perfect sense to approach it with the same tools that we do fiction.

Although this is interesting, it wasn't on that rather theoretical level that I found the book fascinating and worthwhile. What counts is the intrinsic interest of its subject-matter, which Cercas communicates intelligently and clearly. I think it's an interest that goes well beyond Spain and one moment in 1981: what democracy means to us and why it has to be defended is a question that any of us might have to answer one day. ( )

No imagino una millor manera d'explicar el 23F que aquest assaig tan fortament impregnat de literatura i tan bell. Els retrats de personatges són èpics i les simetries i para-lelismes que mostra són, de tan perfectes, gairebé irreals. ( )

The alluring but treacherous borderlands between fact and fiction have never been more attractive to writers and readers, and the Spanish novelist Javier Cercas knows the territory well. A previous book, The Soldiers of Salamis, was a brilliant and original semi-fictional exploration of the Spanish Civil War; here he returns to another crucial episode in the history of his country in this dense but gripping, almost Shakespearean account of soldiers, politicians, mixed motives and the lust for power.

Cercas is a major novelist who has written a fascinating account of a key event in Spain's recent history. Although 30 years have passed, the coup still reverberates. Many argue that, though the coup failed, it triumphed (one of the many paradoxes Cercas delights in): it forced the political class to grow up or, a more sinister consequence, it made politicians fall over each other to give the military what it wanted, a modernised NATO army and a more restricted democracy. Cercas's decision to write fact not fiction is vindicated. He forces us to abandon the fiction, the legends of the coup, and look at the pictures and story anew in all their complexity.
