Now I saw this shortly after it came out in the summer, I was searching for some Bernhard books and this from a writer Berjhard have featured twice before on the blog appeared. Horacio Casrtellanos Moya is an ex pat salvodoran writer, he has written eleven novels.
El asco: Thomas Bernhard en San Salvador
This book is the reason he left El Salvador when it came out is was considered to political many calling for it to be banned and his mother received death threats and Horacio himself fled. He now teaches at Iowa university.
The last time my mother came to Montreal twelve-year ago, she warned ,e. Now the title is a give away here the book is very much an homage to the style of writing that Thomas Bernhard became knownso the book is a single paragraph and in the best Bernhard tradition the main character is miserable. The book is formed of a couple of hours one evening between to men.
Vega a professor how escaped the country and was living in Canada till his mother died and a writer called Moya another nod to Bernhard he has put himself in his books as well Vega is talking about the country and the way it has changed and go down hill a tirade against Salvador of the time but this is somewhat tongue in check in style there is a dark humour at times.
This is a classic pub scene in a way with two men talking about the world one returning has seen the world and wants to tell his friend about how bad berngard place was. The Bernhard connection is also the last lines of the book as Vega took his name as an alias back in the day as he liked him as a writer.
I loved this short book Moya is a marmite writer I think you will either bernhad his works like I do or hate them they tend to be grim and thomxs this rather uneventful but full of lifeit is easy to see why the book when it came out twenty years ago but not long after the end of the civil war in El Salvador a glimpse into the abyss that was the country before told by Vega and the way he saw the peace.
This book is also an homage to modernism ala Bernhard but also Joyce with the action taking place over the space of two hours in an evening as the two get drunk and try to relive their earlier life.
