See Now Then

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

Ema, la cautiva

Ema, l. a. cautiva es quizá los angeles 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 los angeles 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 l. a. 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 thought, atlética si las hay, de escribir una «gótica» simplificada. Manos a l. a. 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: l. a. indiferencia. ¿Qué más pedir?

La crítica ha dicho. ..
«César Aira es hoy por hoy uno de los autores más inclasificables de l. a. narrativa hispanoamericana. Inclasificable por su originalidad, por su brillantez, por su sabiduría en el oficio de narrar en el que mezcla humor, imaginería desbordante y agudas reflexiones. »
