BONSAI NOVELA ALEJANDRO ZAMBRA PDF

Condenado a la seriedad y a la impostura, Julio, el silencioso protagonista de este libro, acaba convenciendose de que es mejor encerrarse en su cuarto a observar el crecimiento de un bonsai que vagar por los incomodos caminos de la literatura. Jorge Luis Borges aconsejaba escribir como si se estuviera redactando el resumen de una obra ya escrita. Eso es lo que ha hecho Alejandro Zambra en este libro que, del mismo modo que un bonsai no es un arbol, mas que una novela corta o un relato largo es una novela-resumen o, justamente, una novela-bonsai. Bonsai supone el brillante debut narrativo del joven chileno Alejandro Zambra, poeta y critico literario. Convert currency.

In the second section, the protagonist is the writer of the story begun in the first section. His father is a man of few words who claims to be apolitical but who quietly sympathized—to what degree, the author isn't sure—with the Pinochet regime. His reflections on the progress of the novel and on his own life—which is strikingly similar to the life of his novel's protagonist—expose the raw suture of fiction and reality.

Ways of Going Home switches between author and character, past and present, reflecting with melancholy and rage on the history of a nation and on a generation born too late—the generation which, as the author-narrator puts it, learned to read and write while their parents became accomplices or victims.

He is a poet and critic and currently teaches literature at the Diego Portales University in Santiago. Bonsai is his first novel. Her first novel, The Invisible Mountain, is forthcoming in See more. Ways of Going Home: A Novel. Alejandro Zambra. Alejandro Zambra's Ways of Going Home begins with an earthquake, seen through the eyes of an unnamed nine-year-old boy who lives in an undistinguished middleclass housing development in a suburb of Santiago, Chile.

Multiple Choice. Now, at the height of his powers, Zambra returns with his most audaciously brilliant book yet. Written in the form of a standardized test, Multiple Choice invites the reader to respond to virtuoso language exercises and short narrative passages through multiple-choice questions that are thought-provoking, usually unanswerable, and often absurd.

It offers a new kind of reading experience, one in which the reader participates directly in the creation of meaning, and the nature of storytelling itself is called into question. At once funny, poignant, and political, Multiple Choice is about love and family, authoritarianism and its legacies, and the conviction that, rather than learning to think for ourselves, we are trained to obey and repeat. Serious in its literary ambition and playful in its execution, it confirms Alejandro Zambra as one of the most important writers working in any language.
