By Pär Lagerkvist

Below en resa genom Europa våren 1933 kunde Pär Lagerkvist bevittna fascismens och nazismens framfart. Vid hemkomsten until eventually Sverige påbörjade han detta verk som skulle komma att bli ett omistligt inlägg i kampen mot våldet och nazismen och en betraktelse över människans förhållande until det onda.

Ur förordet av Jonas Gardell:

”Det var något allvarligt och… livsavgörande över Lagerkvists böcker. En känsla redan när guy öppnade dem att nu skulle guy läsa något som skulle bli viktigt för en.
Kanske hade det att göra med att romanerna var så tunna, språket så enkelt males ändå bibliskt, radbredden kort, vilken gav intrycket att sidorna var höga och smala, lite som väggarna i en kyrka. Också bokstäverna på sidorna var höga och smala, en smula karga och rentav dystra.

Den första romanen av Lagerkvist jag läste var Barabbas. Jag var kanske fjorton eller femton. Därefter följde Bödeln. Båda böckerna förändrade mitt liv.”

New PDF release: Negra espalda del tiempo

«No soy el primero ni seré el último escritor cuya vida se enriquece o condena por causa de lo que imaginó y escribió. »

Pero quizá ninguno haya visto su realidad invadida por l. a. ficción como Javier Marías, ni a tantas personas comportarse como personajes suyos, ni se habrá diluido tanto entre sus propias páginas, ni se habrá convertido en el heredero de un reino legendario que sin embargo figura en los mapas.

Poco podía imaginar el autor de esta "falsa novela" que con su obra Todas las almas iba a poner en marcha un mundo que yacía dormido o que transitaba sólo por los angeles Negra espalda del tiempo que suele estar oculta y no verse. Un mundo en el que todo cabe, lo impensable y lo que trae el destino, l. a. inverosimilitud y los angeles gracia, los angeles aventura y el infortunio, los angeles bala perdida en México y una maldición en los angeles Habana, un piloto mercenario y tuerto al que l. a. muerte pasaba de largo siempre, y los velados recuerdos de un narrador que se hace más misterioso cuanto más reflexiona y cuenta.

La voz de Javier Marías es aquí más sobrecogedora que nunca, como si fuera "una voz antojadiza e imprevisible pero que conocemos todos, l. a. voz del tiempo cuando aún no ha pasado ni se ha perdido y quizá por eso ni siquiera es tiempo".

Example text

I remember being amazed that we could pull up to the same house in a completely new location. When we walked inside, everything was just the same. It was like a spaceship that could take off and then land somewhere else. 59 GENDER FAILURE Uncle Carl loved horses. He rode them until he was bowlegged. I would watch him amble around and think about how the horses had changed the shape of his legs to fit their bodies. Sometimes he would take his own horse out for us to ride. He would lift my sister and me up onto it and then lead us around slowly.

We would make jokes about it and warn each other as we passed the receiver, but I felt my uncles’ isolation and identified with it. When my brother Jack died, they were his pallbearers. They carried his coffin without crying from the church to the hearse. I looked up at them when they passed by me and hoped to be strong like them. When my schizophrenic father would fly off the handle, at least one of them would always show up to protect us. My father was scared of them and would take off as soon as one showed up in a truck.

I felt so tall on top and safe with my uncle holding the reins. Uncle Carl has worked the oil rigs for as long as I can remember. We would never know if he was going to show up at Christmas or Thanksgiving until that day. It all depended on whether his boss gave the crew the time off or not, and that depended on the price of crude oil. Sometimes he would drive twelve hours straight back from Saskatchewan to be with us. Other times he would be unreachable, working somewhere out on the flat, frozen land.
