Lisboa 1938 Bajo la opresiva dictadura de Salazar el furor de la guerra civil espanola llamando a la puerta y el fascismo italiano de fondo Pereira un periodista dedicado a la seccion de sucesos recib. Reasons of the HeartGiving unto Caesar is considered by most Christians to be a strict reuirement of citizenship From the payment of taxes to the offering of one s life in patriotic war one is expected to conform as a Christian duty Established government appears to be divinely sanctioned by the biblical command After all Christianity stands for orderliness in the universe Social chaos is by definition evil And isn t salvation a purely personal matterMartin Luther for example divided the world cleanly in two In his interpretation the spiritual had nothing at all to do with the political Modern Evangelicals still view existing law as God given unless of course they take offence at it But mostly middle class Christians simply accept the inevitability of government and its policies and they adopt an attitude of impotent indifference to the resulting suffering usually by the less well off and non Christians Commonly they claim to do so in the name of Christianity itselfSo it was in Salazar s Portugal during the 1930 s as it was in most of contemporary Europe Fear and hypocrisy combined to create political acceptance even among those who found its oppressive fascism most distasteful And so is it now in Trumpist America Christianity seems to have a natural affinity with monarchs dictators and anyone else who can consolidate power in its Christianity s interest Occasionally however someone usually a non Christian provokes the dormant conscience of the Christian psyche Pereira Maintains is the story of such a provocation and its conseuencesChristian conscience can be a strange thing The eponymous Pereira feels uncomfortable with the political condition of his country and he wanted to repent but didn t know what he had to repent of he only felt a yearning for repentance as such surely that s what he meant or perhaps who knows he simply liked the idea of repentance Repentance like salvation is a personal thing without social implications The resolution of Pereira s discomfort he thinks is confession and counsel Political involvement is unthinkablePereira is drawn to memory mainly the reminiscence of his deceased wife But generally he is motivated by the memory of how things used to be the familiar orderliness of past life Unable to live in the past he ignores the reality of the present except within the limited sphere of his own ego his digestion poor the weather hot his job as a journalist satisfying the maintenance of his social isolation from potential threats mainly the government and its network of informers Pereira fervently believes in and desires the resurrection of his soul but not his body The later of course is inherently social and dependent upon other human beings This is hardly an orthodox opinion but it is necessary in order to maintain his detachment from the world What he finds however is that the slightest human contact is political It can t be helped His soul is part of a confederation over which he has no real control and whose connections are matters of the collective heart not the individual will Even mere translation of long dead authors establishes such a bond that is politically dangerousThe entire story is told in the form of a judicial deposition or police interrogation report as suggested by the title It is a narrative prepared by an intermediary ready perhaps for confirmation by the person who has been uestioned The central point of this narrative is stated early on Philosophy appears to concern itself only with the truth but perhaps expresses only fantasies while literature appears to concern itself only with fantasies but perhaps it expresses the truth What s wanting then is only a signature admitting this crime of recognition Fakers, Forgers Phoneys el

Young people they can be a real pain when they play Daft Punk and that is not a randomly capitalized ualifying adjective I mean Daft Punk at a volume level that stuns the snoozing song thrush out the tree or when they turn the night time inner city streets into alcohol fuelled yodelling and technicolour burping festivals Nevertheless they are our stake in the future the next generation that will have to deal with what the previous one left behind whatever kind of a mess that isPereira is no longer young Reminders of his own mortality are knocking hard at his door his heart is not so good high blood pressure he should lose a few pounds since his wife died and left him alone with no other family he s let himself go a little He s not miserable but he is complacent He has a cosy job editor at the Lisbon paper now in charge of the weekly arts page a new rubric which mostly consists of Pereira s own translations of 19th century French classics which deliver him not a little satisfaction and pride The concierge from his apartment block comes in to do the cleaning and leaves him a meal prepared He has built himself a tidy wee nest a corner of the world where he can plod along at what he does no worriesThis cannot last Obviously No sand in the machinery no storyThe hot summer weather makes Pereira all the aware of his physical decline He sweats he is short of breath his heart races His thoughts turn to death so that an article in a literary journal which consists of an extract from a dissertation on the subject of death catches his eye He rings the young man who wrote the dissertation Arranges to meet this young man And as he makes his way to their meeting place that warm summer evening in Lisbon it becomes clear that there is another reason why Pereira s rather bland idyll cannot last for this is the summer of 1938 and fascism is sweeping across Europe Even his decision to publish nothing but 19th century French classic tales in his arts section is a form of collusion with a dictatorial regime This is a situation in which it is impossible to remain neutral Those who do not defy the system are collaboratorsIn translucent uiet rhythms Tabucchi sets out each careful tiny step that Pereira takes towards following his heart It is not an easy or sudden transformation Pereira needs help along the way from those good people who challenge his complacency who remind him of his better self who give him permission to change Each tiny step the help along the way Heroism as a joint achievement an act of courage by an individual yes but with many contributorsTension is maintained throughout by the repeated use of the phrase Pereira declares as in a testimony which most vividly suggests a police interrogation The temptation to sneak a look at the last page is almost irresistible Everyone should read this Young old and all of those between Everyone
