The Good Soldier Svejk: and His Fortunes in the World War (Penguin Classics) $13.02 By Jaroslav Hasek I came across this book by happy accident. It had been left beside a watercooler where people leave books they have finished for others to read. I did not remember ever hearing of it, but the back cover blurb intrigued me. Written by Jaroslac Hasek after World War I, it is the story of a bumbling Austrian man called up to serve at the front of the war. The entire story reminds me of a modern, World War version of Don Quixote—if Pancho Villa had been the main character. Svejk sets forth on long series of adventures in trying to get to the front line, along the way he is imprisoned, gets tangled up in a variety of disasters both small and large, and even gets lost behind the front lines. His happy and simple-minded manner, almost imbecilic, hide a foolish wisdom which unassumingly and indirectly point out the silliness of those around him (especially those in authority). The character allows Hasek to poke at the overinflated, reveal hypocrisy, and demonstrate the insanity of the period from a "common soldier" point-of-view. He would know—Hasek himself was captured by the Russians during the War and spent years in a prison camp. Though Svejk is eventually discharged from the military for "being an idiot," the reader is left snickering because it is really everyone else in the story who are the idiots. The narrative is hilarious—I actually laughed out loud at some points. It takes some skill to sustain such a humorous story for 500 pages. The crude humor (sometimes obscured in translations)It is tragic that Hasek did not lie to complete the story, but it close enough to be worthwhile as it is. The Good Soldier Svejk stands on its own, but many have likened it to such works as Catch-22, A Confederacy of Dunces, or Slaughterhouse-Five. I recommend it!

La ciudad y los perros (1962), Mario Vargas Llosa. La ciudad y los perros no solamente es un ataque contra la crueldad ejercida a un grupo de jóvenes alumnos del Colegio Militar Leoncio Prado, sino también una crítica frontal al concepto erróneo de la virilidad, de sus funciones y de las consecuencias de una educación castrense malentendida.

La Ciudad y los Perros, Mario Vargas Llosa - Novel 2010
Un libro básico para el estudio de la literatura hispanoamericana de la segunda mitad de este siglo. Con esta novela Vargas Llosa alcanzó el reconocimiento internacional. En ella demuestra una madurez literaria extraordinaria que en delante irá en aumento hasta alcanzar un estilo depuradísimo y un sitio de primera fila entre los escritores contemporáneos. Desde su publicación, La ciudad y los perros ha sido traducida a más de treinta idiomas. La ciudad y los perros no solamente es una diatriba contra la brutalidad ejercida en un grupo de jóvenes alumnos del Colegio Militar Leoncio Prado, también es un ataque frontal al concepto erróneo de la virilidad, de sus funciones y de las consecuencias de una educación castrense malentendida. Aunada a la brutalidad propia de la vida militar, a lo largo de las páginas de esta extraordinaria novela, la vehemencia y la pasión de la juventud se desbocan hasta llegar a una furia, una rabia y un fanatismo que anulan toda su sensibilidad. El libro más violento de Mario Vargas Llosa.

Naomi / Junichiro Tanizaki (谷崎 潤一郎, 1886 - 1965) // "I'm going to try to relate the facts of our relationship as man and wife just as they happened, as honestly and frankly as I can. It's probably a relationship without precedent. My account of it will provide me with a precious record of something never want to forget. At the same time, I'm sure my readers will find it instructive, too." — Junichiro Tanizaki, Naomi (novel)

Boy, this was GOOD. I lingered over breakfast this morning, so I could finish the last twenty or so pages. Then I had to sit a little longer to be able to swallow the big lump of emotion in my throat when I was done. This is a novel based entirely on the true story of ten year old Enaiatollah Akbari from Afghanistan who wakes up in a strange place in a different country, to discover that he has been abandoned by his mother. Thus, at ten, and very much alone, he begins his journey to survive. The story is a frightening account of how a young boy makes his way in unfamiliar places, remembering what his mother taught him and recognizing good along the way. I especially appreciated that the story was presented in Enaiatollah's voice, as many ugly and unthinkable things were made to feel somehow less hard; as if they were being discovered for the first time, through the eyes of an innocent boy. I loved that the author was so taken by Enaiatollah's story. He inserts his own voice periodically into the tale; recording bits of their conversations together, as if to emphasize the amazing things this boy has been through and overcome. I was silently cheering and hoping for the best during the two quick days that I spent reading, but consoled myself (when I got worried) by remembering that he makes it. It is his story, afterall. The Italian author, Fabio Geda, meets Enaiatollah at a book presentation where he was speaking about his first novel, a story about a Romanian boy's life as an immigrant in Italy. Enaiatollah approaches Geda and says that he'd had a similar experience. In the Sea there are Crocodiles is the re-telling of Enaiatollah's story exactly as he tells it to Geda. And it has been beautifully translated into English, which I am grateful for. This goes right to the top of my favorites list for 2011. I found the book at the library; I plucked it off the shelf purely because the cover art intrigued me. I hope your library has a copy too.
