    César Aira is the Roomba of literature Like the little robotic vacuum cleaner that goes off in all directions he keeps going straight forward until he bumps against an obstruction then that straight line becomes a series of Ptolemaic epicycles that delight in their wild divagationsAs the result of pure chance the narrator also called César discovers a pirate treasure that makes him fabulously rich As a combination playwright a

    The main character in this book sets up a metaphor of himself as a Mad Scientist But this metaphor is actually apt for Cesar Aira himself as his books always seem like experiments in the best sense of the word But not the type of experimental writing a la Joyce or Stein that is interested in pure language play not that Aira isn’t interested in language but it is only one part of his experiment In most experimental writing you at least

    Nothing could please me than an appropriation of B movie tropes in a mock literary context by a wickedly talented author in the service of absurdism Unfortunately unless I'm missing something this isn't it Plotless and essayistic I can handle if the author has something to say or if he says nothing in a beautiful way But Aira says

    I came across this book by accident and decided to read it despite reading some not so promising reviewsThe premise of the story is a mad scientist who tries to clone famous writer Carlos Fuentes I enjoyed most things about this book; the storyline the language used and the narrator's inner monologue in particular It's a very enjo

Riddle finds a pirate’s treasure and becomes a very wealthy man Even so César’s bid for world domination comes first and so he attends a literary conference to be near the man whose clone he hopes will lead an army. The main character in this book sets up a metaphor of himself as a Mad Scientist But this metaphor is actually apt for Cesar Aira himself as his books always seem like experiments in the best sense of the word But not the type of experimental writing a la Joyce or Stein that is interested in pure language play not that Aira isn t interested in language but it is only one part of his experiment In most experimental writing you at least have a sense of the experiment being somewhat finished predetermined or at least a manifestation of an aesthetic leaning that the author is trying to work out the endpoint being the ultimate artistic vision But here the writing style is conventional But it is precisely those conventions of narrative of language which are the alchemical ingredients in Cesar Aira s mad scientist lab These experiments have no predetermined ends not even a hypothesis before the scientific process commences they are simply mad ideas and literary devices are used or rather bent to accomplish no specific purpose but to see what the end result would beThat is why to appreciate Cesar Aira one must be himherself a little obsessed a little mad or at least open to playfulness and adventure and a little bit interested in what would happen if His books may not all be good but they re always fascinating Every once in a while his experiment succeeds beyond even his own wildest expectations like in An Episode in the Life of a Landscape Painter But most of the time he will fail but fail so amazingly that you cannot help but love reading itThis novel in particular presents Cesar Aira as a writertranslatorscientist and in most cases I wouldn t assume an autobiographical component to a book just because the name of the protagonist is the same as the name of the author Cesar Aira appears in How I Became a Nun too But in this case I feel justified in at least reading into it a bit Not only is the mad scientist metaphor so apt for his playfulness but also parts of this read as if he were looking back and musing on his own processIf you ve ever been frustrated with his wacko plots imagine what he feels about them As I read Aira the character in the book talking about a performance of a play that he wrote many years ago I imagined the real Aira s voice talking about his booksGone were the many doubts that I had written it for there were my recurrent themes my little tricks the idea had been to create something euivalent to those figures that was both realistic and impossible like Escher s Belvedere figures that look viable in a drawing but could not be built because they are but an illusion of perspectiveI was able to sustain it in this play only through the strength of ambiguitiesbut my mania to be constantly adding things episodes characters paragraphs to be constantly veering off course branching out is fatal It must be due to insecurity fear that the basics are not enough so I have to keep adding and adornment until I achieve a kind of surrealist rococo which exasperates me than it does anybody else It was like a nightmare the mother of all nightmares to watch the living defects of what I had written materialize in front of meit was grotesue repulsive I was mortified Difficult as it is to believe people liked that crap p55 60More writers should include a review of their own work in their novels it makes my job easier

To victory the world renowned Mexican author Carlos Fuentes A comic science fiction fantasy of the first order The Literary Conference is the perfect vehicle for César Aira’s take over of literature in the 21st century. Nothing could please me than an appropriation of B movie tropes in a mock literary context by a wickedly talented author in the service of absurdism Unfortunately unless I m missing something this isn t it Plotless and essayistic I can handle if the author has something to say or if he says nothing in a beautiful way But Aira says nothing clumsily with maximum confusion Dead dull uninspired for this piece of empty bravado I reserve the special hatred we feel when someone we had trusted lets us down Maybe I m being unfair because my expectations were high after An Episode in the Life of a Landscape Painter but if so it s unlikely I ll ever know it because I don t plan on reading this book again The worst reading experience I ve had this year

César is a translator who’s fallen on very hard times due to the global economic downturn; he is also an author and a mad scientist hell bent on world domination On a visit to the beach he intuitively solves an ancient. I am not kidding when I say that Cesar Aira is the most fiercely free writer I have read He is one whose greatness relies on the vehemence against great tome y literature I have described his writing methods in reviews of other books by him so I won t go into those Suffice it to say that he is almost always writing a manifesto for his style which includes a liuid and senseless plot that the narrator keeps tangling and untangling the efforts are for all to see You read the manifesto and a slapdash execution of that manifesto and emerge from the work bemused and altered There is nothing even remotely close to the Cesar Aira experience Do not ignore him for he is one writer who has done something genuinely new in fiction writingImpossible to talk of the story plot itself when one talks of Cesar Aira It s so inconseuential Just know that weird senseless stuff happens all the time and weird senseless arguments are given to explain it In this book Aira seems to particularly ridicule literary greatness but that too seems incidental and even perfunctory His books efface themselves They are an exercise in amnesia Completely unmemorable but somehow devoid of the negativity of that adjective
