ους τρελλαίνει και στον πόθο τους να την αγγίξουν δεν διστάζουν να αρπάξουν την πένα από τα χέρια του συγγραφέα τους και να γράψουν την ιστορία τους όπως αυτοί τη θέλουν Κι αυτός άλλοτε υποχείριο των παθών τους κι άλλοτε εγγυητής της εσωτερικής συνέχειας της αφήγησης αναγκάζεται να επέμβει να αλλάξει την πλοκή ή να υποδείξει στον αναγνώστη κάποια πτυχή που οι χαρακτήρες του αποκρύβουν. It takes than a little something to write about your characters disobeying yourself the author Well maybe it takes of that thing today than in 1928 but still Despite that somewhat heavy handed self awareness at the beginning the authorial footnotes strewn throughout are a less grating touch this text shines in the way it moves It is funny and frenetic and invites you to do than a little detective work Breezy tune up read for Chromos which I understand is his masterwork Much better than this would be uite good indeed You can safely read the Mary McCarthy afterword on this beforehand She s uite smitten and there s a bit of transfer375 stars

Το «Καφενείο των τρελλών» στο Τολέδο πόλη μαγική μετέωρη στο χρόνο είναι ο χώρος συγκέντρωσης των λογοτεχνικών χαρακτήρων που δεν έχουν βρει το συγγραφέα τουςΟ Φελίπε Αλφάου Ισπανός μετανάστης στην Αμερική μουσικοκριτικός και φίλος του Λόρκα που αναγκάζεται να γράψει στα αγγλικά την ισπανική ιστορία του συχνάζει κι αυτός καμιά φορά μαζί με τους αποτυχημένους συγγραφείς στο «Καφενε?. Once I was at the Caf de los Locos in Toledo Bad writers were in the habit of coming to that caf in uest of characters and I came now and then among themAnd so he did this Spanish expatriate writing in English in New York because he felt Spaniards wouldn t get it Finished in 1928 it was eight years finding a publisher And when it did Felipe Alfau gave up writing and worked in a bank The book Well there s certainly an audience among my cherished goodreads friends Appearing to be a collection of stories the characters within nevertheless appear and reappear in somewhat different forms and identities The author speaks to the reader He explains himself apologizes faintly A character is playing the Rondeau Capriccioso of Mendelssohn but we are told in a footnote that the character could not conceivably have played such a piece performing an inadeuate popular dance instead But the author had his way Stuff like thatAlfau demands comparisons at least every reviewer seems to feel the need he s like Borges Barthelme and Barth Nabokov Calvino Eco Falling into the category of every reviewer and thus feeling the urge I d vote for derivative of Sterne and presaging O BrienAs I said characters appear and reappear Lunarito can be a child a prostitute a nun Pepe and Gaston Carmen and Mignon what a family There is the suggestion of incest and sex with a 12 year old maid But the author said he could not control his characters or not completelyA very old looking woman in an apron comes into a kitchen She keeps repeating if poor Gil should lift his head Like a parrot saying nothing else Thereafter she is called the old insane woman but I m not so sure Gil shows up And againSo people are named and re configured Yet I noticed as if only I was supposed to notice that there was an un named character who appeared only once or twice The fourth man at a table if you will where the other three are named Even described once an older man with rounded glasses He never participates He would seem unnecessary But please don t call me that

    Puma you sure can pick 'em I thoroughly enjoyed this one The characters in revolt against their young 'author' line in the description had me somewhat concerned; I could see it getting a little too whimsically meta like one of those Daffy Duck cartoons where he complains about how the animator is drawing him and the animator retaliates by drawing Daffy and ridiculously Thankfully there's a lot to it than just metafictive funny bus

    Strangely for a book recommended to me by a man who claims not to like short stories this is not a novel as its cover blurb claims but a collection of short stories Linked they may be but cohesive enough to be a novel they are not Nor while I'm on the subject of the cover blurb do they 'anticipate works like Pale Fire and

    Poor Felipe Alfau If he had stayed in Spain rather than immigrate to the States he would very likely be considered today one of the most interesting writers among the “avant garde” artists of the 20th century Locos a book he apparently wrote in the late 1920s but only published in 1936 and no one paid any attention to it until than 50 years later anticipates trends that can be found in other major 20th century writers In fa
