See Now Then

In See Now Then, the bright and evocative new novel from Jamaica Kincaid—her first in ten years—a marriage is published in all its joys and agonies. This piercing exam of the manifold ways that the passing of time operates at the human attention unfolds gracefully, and Kincaid inhabits every one of her characters—a mom, a father, and their young children, dwelling in a small village in New England—as they circulation, of their personal minds, among the current, the previous, and the long run: for, as she writes, "the current should be now then and the previous is now then and the long run may be a now then.

Ema, la cautiva

Ema, los angeles cautiva es quizá l. a. más reconocida novela de César Aira y l. a. primera de toda su obra que se publicó en España.

Ameno lector, hay que ser pringlense, y pertenecer al Comité del Significante, para saber que una contratapa es una «tapa en contra». Sin ir más lejos, yo lo sé. Pero por alguna razón me veo frívolamente obligado a contarte cómo se me ocurrió esta historiola. l. a. ocasión es propicia para las confidencias: una linda mañana de primavera, en el Pumper Nic de Flores, donde suelo venir a pensar. Tomasito (dos años) juega entre las mesas colmadas de colegiales de incógnito. Reina los angeles desocupación, el tiempo sobra.

Hace unos años yo period muy pobre, y ganaba lo necesario para analista y vacaciones traduciendo, gracias a l. a. bondad de un editor amigo, largas novelas de esas llamadas «góticas», odiseas de mujeres, ya inglesas, ya californianas, que trasladan sus morondangas de siempre por mares himenópticos, maresde té pasional. Las disfrutaba, por supuesto, pero con los angeles práctica llegué a sentir que había demasiadas pasiones, y que cada una anulaba a las demás como un desodorizante de ambientes. Fue todo pensarlo y concebir los angeles notion, atlética si las hay, de escribir una «gótica» simplificada. Manos a los angeles obra. Soy de decisiones imaginarias rápidas. El Eterno Retorno fue mi recurso. Abjuré del Ser: me volví Sei Shonagon, Sherezada, más los animales. Las «anécdotas del destino». Durante varias semanas me distraje. Sudé un poco. Me reí. Y al terminar resultó que Ema, mi pequeña yo mismo, había creado para mí una pasión nueva, los angeles pasión por l. a. que pueden cambiarse todas las otras como el dinero se cambia por todas las cosas: los angeles indiferencia. ¿Qué más pedir?

La crítica ha dicho. ..

She's like a tram, but off the rails, To stop when asked she often fails. When full inside, she doesn't stop, Greedy you know, and painfully slow, There's plenty of room on top. - 33 - She picks up men all round the town, While many women she knocks down. All noise and smells, and shouts and fuss, She's round the bend, she is the end, Or should I say the terminus.

His verse is full of clever medical allusions: "Lend me dear friend, thy streptotrap To catch some streptomycin. . " Over it all, however, hangs the shadow of his addiction, as witness such poems as: "La Bella Donna sans merci", "Sigh low, sigh bin, no morphia I'll do", "By many a purple-hearted casebook. .
