    PDF KINDLE [Between Eternities] Reading a book of essays written by one author I like it is almost a gift to me because it helped to show under a new light many of the novels he wrote and to get to know him a little bit better So these are the reasons why I liked this collection even if it was sometimes hard due to the fact that I had no idea about some of the topics or the people he was talking about plus I have to say I do not think he w

Kennedy and Its Aftermath is perhaps the weakest of the book from my perspective since the pieces don t really without knowledge of the films or actors concerned And having rejected artistic pretensiont has to be said that as n his novels Marias writes from a very old fashioned educated upper middle class old fashioned and almost fusty stance towards almost anything modern vulgar s perhaps to his mind the greatest of George V's Children insultsThe two main deliberate omissions from this English language selection are Marias extensive writing on politics and football which feels rather a shame particularly given the uality of the two pieces that arencluded Albeit one wonders f his pieces on smoking see eg have been deliberately omitted as out of step with UKUS attitudes No Narrative Shame was written n 2006 as a sort of spin off of Your Face Tomorrow one of a number of reports n the style of that book on real life figures But t could well have been written Brotherhood of Thieves: The Wardens in 2018 Essentially the mans a bore even when he s merely a guest he has to dominate Whenever he gets together with other heads of state How to Become an It Architect it s obvious that deep down he feels like anntruder and Shaking Behind the Microphone: Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking it s precisely his jaunty carefree manner that betrays his deep seatednsecurity this man Lamikorda is unscrupulous butn the most real and radical sense of the world he has never rejected scruples for the simple reason that they are beyond his magination and have never been part of his thinking let alone his valuesThe subject no who you are thinking but Silvio BerlusconiAlthough even this piece betrays a certain amount snobbery as Marias s delighted to reveal that Berlusconi started as a cruise ship entertainer shades of John Prescott and reminds Marias of an old style caretaker or porter the kind who kowtow to the owners and to the wealthier tenants but treat delivery men and servants like dirtAnd the one piece on football ncluded s essentially Marias take on the only as good as your last game cliche which he endorses He reveals that he temporarily but uite seriously fell out with his Barcelona based publisher and also vowed never to again set foot n Tenerife after the dramatic finale of the 1991 2 La Liga He observes that while a writer an architect or a musician can rest a little after having written a great novel designed a marvellous building or made an unforgettable record some have been deemed to be good right up to their death thanks to one estimable work written fifty years before n sport generally and football Complete Guide to the TOPIK (advanced) in particular having been the best yesterday doesn t count today let alone tomorrow Past joys as nothing compared to present anxietyOverall this was certainly a significant mprovement on Jose Saramago s another great southern European peer of Marias rather embarrasing NotebooksAnd Marias completists aside e me this You Come to Yokum is my 18th Marias book thiss best read n place of not just Venice An Interior which t subsumes but also the Cahiers Series To Begin at the BeginningHowever this still feels like something to fill the time while one waits for Berta Isla which seems to be garnening critical acclaim to make Zbogom, dragi Krleža its waynto English.
