Introducing César Aira from Argentina author of dozens of quirky quizzical lyrical novellas and novels many translated into English his best known An Episode in the Life of a Landscape Painter a surreal yarn of a nineteenth century German artist's travels in Latin America and Ghosts a tale about a haunted luxury apartment complex in the city of Buenos Aires Why haven’t I heard of César Aira before? Perhaps because he takes delight in being somewhat obscure As he stated in an interview nearly half of his ninety titles are pamphlets or booklets many less than twenty pages Since by his reckoning every story is a book he prefers small independent publishers willing to print a limited run Therefore he surmises if someone really wants to read his books they will find them I'm d

I like books of the sort that cause some to roll their eyes and wonder “WTF is this? People read this shit?”—the sorts of books that are hard to place by genre other than that anti genre sometimes called Literary Fiction The ones that frequently provoke one word reviews Boring The sorts of fiction that prompt sneers of ‘book snob’ or in my case ‘dilettante’ it’s cool I’ve been called worseI don’t care so much about the story I do of course care about the story but I don’t read to find out how a book will end My interest isn’t of the ‘what happens?’ variety but rather of the ‘how is it conveyed?’—not the tale but the telling of the tale When reading I’m inclined to think Look what the author is doing here rather than Look what this cha

    PDF sharkmotorcyclehelmetscouk ð El congreso de literatura PDFEPUB Ý El congreso congreso book, literatura ebok, El congreso book, El congreso de literatura PDF/EPUBThe main character in this book sets up a metaphor of himself as a Mad Scientist But this metaphor is actually apt for Cesar Aira himself as his books always seem like experiments in the best sense of the word But not the type of experimental writing a la Joyce or Stein that is interested in pure language play not that Aira isn’t interested in language but it is only one part of his experiment In most experimental writing you at least have a sense of the experiment being somewhat finished predetermined or at least a manifestation of an aesthetic leaning that the author is trying to work out the endpoint being the ultimate artistic vision But here the writing style is conventional But it is precisely those conventions of narrative of language which are
