review Los Planetas

Aires in the early 1970s He convinces himself that M must have died in this explosion and he begins to tell the story of their friendship through a series interconnected vignettes hoping in this way to reanimate his friend an. Uneven ultimately parts of it are lovely deeply felt and engaging and parts are not failing alternately for being too vague or too explicit Too many connections are explained which should have been left to intuit and too much time is spent talking about silence when some actual silence would have sufficed I m left with the suspicion that this book isn t uite about what Chejfec thinks it s about that the Sebaldian meditations on identity memory and the city are ultimately weightless and beside the point I like Chejfec s style and I look forward to reading his future books but I wish that he would stop trying to write like Sebald and write like himself He s a surprisingly good storyteller this was something I never managed to realize in My Two Worlds and a better storyteller than philosopher The existential conclusions the book draws are disappointingly obvious and do not explain the book as if the book itself were a planet that could not see the star it was orbiting PS I won my copy of this book through a GoodReads giveaway so would like to thank Open Letter for that and for their general fabulousness
