    What a lovely piece of writing it is I really do not want to waste your time that you could devote to read the story itself so I'll try to be brief Like in The Reuiem the previous story by Tabucchi I've read we are in scor

Sostiene Pereira

A una sorta di verbale un magnifico verbale giudiziario redatto non si sa da chi ma forse in ultima analisi dal tribunale della Storia il vecchio giornalista Pereira affida la sua vicenda di sfiduciata acuiescenza e di risveglio di riscatto umano e politico per una scelta di campo non più dilazionabile Pereira lo incontriamo nella Lisbona del 1938 vedovo molto afflitto e malato di cuore grasso e stanco caporedattore delle pagine culturali di un piccolo giornale del pomeriggio; è una Lisbona stritolata dalla morsa dell'oppressione fascista di Salazar dall'onn. It was one of those days when I had a good meal the fresh herbs the right salt the approachable variety the generous portions the nice host I walked back home with a content smile Upon unlocking the door a whiff of scented potpourri filled my senses and I sunk on my couch thinking a day well spent a tummy well fed I then switched off the lights of the living room and yawned to usher in a good night s sleep I got up the next morning at the invigorating slant of the sunshine and was enveloped by a good feeling My mom called up while I was sipping teaHow was yesterday We couldn t catch upIt was good mamma A fruitful day at workAnd your dinner I hope you ate something properI did In fact a good meal at The ZephyrShe didn t wait for me to finish Good meal Aha So what did you eat away my girlAnd I blurted almost the same instant Oh I had a ermm gently crushing my eyelid hang on I think dropping my palms to my lap ah well it was good and that s enough for one outing isn t it mammaNo I am not aiming at your cupcakes And I remember I am reviewing a book a rather interesting novella about Dr Pereira a senior editor of culture page in an evening newspaper of Lisbon of 1930s whose apolitical stand comes under fire when a passionate but troublesome young writer Rossi joins him as an assistant The story was replete with its elements a hesitant awkward yet endearing protagonist his ordinary life whose highlights were hidden in the contours of routine webs a uirky bunch of colleagues and acuaintances whose freuent entries and exits rendered the story a velvet drape of drama a politically charged environment that overshadowed the nascent cultural propagation and a constant waging war between his givings and misgivings I uite liked Pereira s demeanor a wise man on the other side of the age living a life just so he can write about literature and talk about the same to his dead wife s photograph Rossi was a well sketched representation of that aspect of human beings called habit which eventually draws us into the wells that our elders asked us not to peep into lest we fall prey to their bottomless depths The excessive shots of lemonade the chucklesome frown towards the caretaker the impulsive surges of benevolence the devout exercise for change the unexplained reasons of bonding and the adrenaline rush of breaking through they all had a current which when passed through me left me in pleasant uivers But once the current was off for good I no longer contained the firm after effects of the sensory pleasure just like my meal which although left a good taste in my mouth could not do enough to seal a signature dish or two in my mind long after I had scrubbed the last morsel off the plateFor me the entire experience of witnessing Tabucchi s Pereira to enact a slice of his life was like sitting in a new class with a moody teacher there were days when his diction and grasp sparkled with the luminosity of an emerald that refuses to get camouflaged even in the greenest icicles of a dense banyan tree but there were also days when he garbled innocuously in a haphazard gait like an autumn leaf on a gusty evening Such teachers can inspire if they strike us on a ripe day Unfortunately I remained in and out of sync with him with baffled alacrity But on a clear day when the temperature is indulgent and the heart happily asunder spotting the little crevices in the simple plain body of the creation both edible and sensory can be a revelation I maintainA 35 actually

Ipresente polizia politica dalla stretta ulteriore dovuta alla confinante guerra civile spagnola E lui Pereira si occupa sbadatamente di necrologi e ricorrenze ansioso soltanto di ristorarsi al Café Oruídea e di correre a casa per collouiare col ritratto della moglie morta Poi però il caso lo fa imbattere in una coppia di meravigliosi fidanzati antifascisti e l'epilogo tragico della loro conoscenza lo costringe a una sofferta presa di coscienza che culmina in un gesto e in una fuga verso la democraziaUscito nel 1994 il romanzo ha fatto per la prima volta co. If you re into stuff like this you can read the full review but I feel I must tell you that originally we were Lusitanians and then came the Romans and the Celts and then came the Arabs so what sort of race are we Portuguese in a position to celebrate The Portuguese Race replied the editor in chief and I am sorry to say Pereira that I don t like the tone of your objection we are Portuguese we discovered the world we achieved the greatest feats of navigation the world over and when we did this in the 16th century we were already Portuguese that is what we are and that is what you are to celebrate Pereira In Pereira Declares by Antonio TabucchiI read this in a Portuguese translation from the Italian than ten years ago if memory serves me right I haven t come across anything uite like it and I still have a place in my heart for portly perspiring Pereira with his omelets and his uiet but subversive decency This time this wonderful translation by Patrick Creagh just made my dayIn a narrative that does not want a puzzle Tabucchi uses a very similar resource to the one used by Isaac Bashevis Singer that of telling alien stories supposedly collected from conversations with real people and not hiding it in the book s writing Pereira Declares is a book that walks slowly seeking to situate the scenario through which the characters walk without extending the descriptions but worried to leave the reader with significant details about the characters as for example the custom of Pereira to take Lemonades and the same path every day Alongside this there is a concern for philosophical discussions or at least the ones that foster deeper reflections One can use as an example both the theory of the confederation of souls and the hegemonic hegemony proposed by Dr Cardoso as well as Pereira s trajectory If you re into Lusitania read on

Noscere Antonio Tabucchi uno dei maggiori scrittori italiani del nostro tempo al grande pubblico l'alto messaggio etico della storia si incarna perfettamente nel ritmo incalzante della scrittura che sa addensarsi in una narrazione essenziale e battente come distendersi nelle volute meditative di dialoghi sempre sorprendenti e coinvolgenti Per tutto ciò e per l'affetto pieno di riguardi con cui l'autore lo costruisce passo passo Pereira resta un personaggio indimenticabile da tener presente con gratitudine ad ogni inciampo della nostra perplessa storia di uomi.
