D relive the time they spent together wandering the streets of Buenos AiresSergio Chejfec’s The Planets is an affecting and innovative exploration of mourning remembrance and friendship by one of Argentina’s modern masters. A surprisingly moving story of mourning written in a meandering dense philosophical style that touches on political religious and social themes with lots of ideas about how humans interact with space around them both in terms of geographic space especially in how humans construct and are constructed by cities Captives of geography our past is shaped by the city and in terms of outer space Because the same mystery that moves the planets also impels people And it has to be noted that Heather Cleary s translation is remarkable the style of this book is daunting and can seem impenetrable but her rendering gives a beautiful rhythm within the long sentences and chunky paragraphsA great book I d recommend reading Chejfec s My Two Worlds before reading The Planets it is a tightly composed narrative that can get you inside Chejfec s amazing head a little easier مريض الوهم is an affecting and The Hypochondriacs Guide To Life And Death innovative exploration of mourning remembrance and friendship by one of Argentina’s modern masters.

Review · eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Sergio Chejfec

When he reads about a mysterious explosion in the distant countryside the narrator’s thoughts turn to his disappeared childhood friend M who was abducted from his home years ago during a spasm of political violence in Buenos.

    Very definitely not a book to be rushed through It demands to be mulled over slowly Very digressive and meditative I found it to have much the same conceptual content as a lot of the poetry I've been reading latel
