Bonsái by Alejandro Zambra characters Þ 107 Or «una historia liviana ue se pone pesada» un relato elíptico y vertiginoso marcado por la inuietante desaparición de una mujer Jorge Luis Borges aconsejaba escribir como si se estuviera redactando el resumen de una obra ya escrita Eso es lo ue ha hecho Alejandro Z What s the purpose of being with someone if they don t change your life Alejandro Zambra Bonsa Alejandro Zambra s Bonsai is as delicate as the miniature tree it s named after It is a stunning accomplishment Zambra accomplishes in 86 pages what other writers take hundreds of pages to accomplish Just as the silence between notes in a musical composition can define a work so too do the silences in Bonsai define this work Bonsai is the story of Julio and Emilia a young Chilean couple who become lovers almost inadvertently While the narrative starts with them getting together it also shadows them for countless years situations and affairs that happen away from each other As the lives of Julio and Emilia move ahead they meet other people who play important roles in their personal story but still the two ex lovers remain present like uiet ghosts that hang around in shadowy places The pictures Zambra presents vary in length and significance but they re all eually brilliantIn an obliue way this is a book about literature The two lovers take central stage but their props are books and their dialogue centers around books for most of the first third of the narrative this gives the story unexpected depth As university students with a fondness for prose Emilia and Julio share their love for the written word Julio ends up writing a novel by hand when he decides to fake that he s helping a famous author transcribe his latest book Bonsai is an amazing read that gives one a sense of having experienced something magical

Bonsái by Alejandro Zambra characters Þ 107 Condenado a la seriedad y a la impostura Julio el silencioso protagonista de este libro acaba convenciéndose de ue es mejor encerrarse en su cuarto a observar el crecimiento de un bonsái ue vagar por los incómodos caminos de la literatura Es ésta como dice el narrad Bonsai is the first piece of literature that I read in Spanish It was the right choice for me from the language point of view The narrative was simple and the vocabulary did not raise many difficulties I definitely recommend it if you are an intermediate Spanish learner and want to learn by reading However this novella did not stir any feelings in me It was like I was reading a textbook I though it might be that I was reading in Spanish but I do not think so Alejandro Zambra is young Chilean Novelist and the receiver of the Chile s Literary Critics Award for Best Novel for Bonsai I am bit puzzled why this won the prize maybe there weren t many books published that year who knows The author tried to do something interesting modern and fresh using a conversational detached tone It worked just great if the intention was to make the reader detached as well The novella is basically the love story of Julio and Emilia and what happens to their life after they separate spoilers nothing nice It seems a simple plot but the message wants to be deeper The only problem is that I completely missed it What I did not miss is how uninteresting the reading experience was and if there was a deeper meaning then I could not care less The Kindle edition that I own also contains The Secret Life of Trees which I am planning to read to improve my reading abilities I really hope that one is going to be a better experience

Bonsái by Alejandro Zambra characters Þ 107 Ambra en este libro ue del mismo modo ue un bonsái no es un árbol más ue una novela corta o un relato largo es una novela resumen o justamente una novela bonsái Bonsái supone el brillante debut narrativo del joven chileno Alejandro Zambra poeta y crítico literario In the end she dies and he remains alone although in truth he was alone some years before her death Emilia s death Let s say that she is called or was called Emilia and that he is called was called and continues to be called Julio Julio and Emilia In the end Emilia dies and Julio does not die The rest is literature I only wanted a local short novel to read between transfers on my recent trip to Chile and I ended up with this precious gem of a poem in prose heavy with the memories of my own lost youth among books and movies and lost loves that I know nothing about today A poem dedicated to being young and careless and wasteful of the most precious moments of your life if you only had the wisdom to know it at the time A story about how literature intersects with life about how books brought them together and about how books where insufficient to save them from drifting apart An ode to the girl who lost her way and died much too young and to the boy who decides to grow up a tree in her memory When Julio fell in love with Emilia all the pleasure and suffering previous to the pleasure and suffering that Emilia brought him turned into simple imitations of true pleasure and suffering To analyze to deconstruct this novel seems like sacrilege to me It is intimate and painful and beautiful beyond the words that comprise it Beyond making a note to read one of the key short stories that define the relationship between Julio and Emilia and the reason Julio chooses to commemorate their love with a bonsai It is called Tantalia by Macedonio Fernandez and as I understand from the references it is about a couple that decides to use a house plant as a symbol for their love As I prepared to write some thoughts about my first Zambra experience I found myself checking old notebooks from my student days for fragments of poetry that I underlined in the aftermath of broken relationships I ll just leave them here as feuilles mortes from my own bonsai On and on the rain will fallLike tears from a star like tears from a starOn and on the rain will sayHow fragile we are how fragile we are Ne om aminti c ndva t rziude aceasta nt mplare simplade aceasta banca unde stamt mpla fierbinte l nga t mplaDe pe stamine de alundin plopii albi se cerne jarulOrice nceput se vrea fecundrisipei se deda Florarul APRIL is the cruellest month breeding Lilacs out of the dead land mixing Memory and desire stirring Dull roots with spring rain Les sanglots longsDes violons De l automneBlessent mon c urD une langueur MonotoneTout suffocantEt bl me uand Sonne l heureJe me souviensDes jours anciens Et je pleure Et je m en vaisAu vent mauvais ui m emporteDe del Pareil la Feuille morte
