Summary Ñ Primavera con una esuina rota 109 Primavera con una esuina rota es un testimonio directo y dolorido ue trata de una sociedad escindida fracturada por la represión y el autoritarismo e intenta ser un puente entre dos regiones –el Uruguay bajo la dictadura y el Tonight I am alone I can think clearly I don t have to screen myself off to think of you You ll say that four years five months and fourteen days is too long to spend just thinking things over And you re right But it s not too long to spend thinking of you The moon is shining and I m making the most of it writing to you It s like a balm the moon it always calms me And its light however faint shines on the paper which is important because at this time of night they cut off the electricity I didn t even have moonlight though for the first two years so I m not complaining As Aesop concluded there s always someone worse off than you Santiago is a prisoner in Montevideo He was imprisoned for his political convictions and he has already spent four years in a cell trying to keep sane while his wife his daughter and his father have found shelter in Buenos Aires away from the regime in Uruguay In a turbulent era the 1970s for the entire Central and South America we witness the struggle of a man who did nothing wrong except refusing to obey the ones in power and the way his family is trying to cope with his absence and the demands of a life away from their homeland A life without phantoms isn t good a life where all presences are of flesh and blood The writer succeeds in giving us a sense of time and place and effectively paints the scenery of Buenos Aires during the 70s The problem is that I expected a focus on the political and social circumstances that affected the lives of the citizens of Uruguay and Argentina but the result seemed very different Exiles a series of entries written by an exiled writer is the finest part of the novel It is the only section that powerfully and effectively communicates the complexities that led to dictatorships and cruel policies along with the social and political context in Europe and the USA Exiles is the heart of the novel for me and the entire book should have been like this There is a beautiful haunting text about the sacred site of Epidaurus one of the foundations of World Culture The rest of the novel was uite disappointingBeatriz Santiago s daughter is confused Which country can she call her home Uruguay the country that drove them away or Argentina the country that offered them refuge Beatriz understands the world around her and is brave enough to speak up Benedetti gives us an excellent depiction of a nine year old s thoughts and speech Having said that the writing felt strange in a large portion of the novel The language sounded very USA like and I think there was something missing in translationAnd now to my main issue with the novel Characterization Apart from Beatriz and Santiago the rest of the characters are either indifferent or really really irritating Disturbingly so Graciela for example Santiago s wife She is obnoxious unlikeable to the core so full of herself She has little sympathy for Santiago or her daughter She goes on and on complaining that she doesn t need him as a man she doesn t want to sleep with him and so on and so forth She dares to compare his imprisonment and tortures to the fact that she has no one to fall in bed with She spends her time applying lipstick combing her hair shouting and beating her daughter trying to find someone to f crying her eyes out in pretense to make everyone feel sorry for her She is easily one of the worst female characters you ll ever encounter and her presence has a frightfully negative impact on the novel as a whole Is she an accurate depiction of a wife left to care for a child and herself while her husband is a political prisoner No And if she is then she is extremely badly written as a character I am sorryMy enthusiasm vanished after the 50% mark of the novel I thought I had chosen a political social work of fiction about the complex realities in Uruguay and Argentina and all of a sudden I found myself reading about an empty headed woman s sex woes and an elderly man s frivolities with a much younger woman This is a literary soap opera in my books and I am not here for that To add insult to injury the ending is disappointing This isn t an open ended closure it is the epitome of the blank And I felt deceived having to read about love issues when the book seemed to be so much than that Unfortunately my introduction to Benedetti s work was far from positive Three stars out of respect and because of the Exiles And Beatriz and Santiago It s thortum now where my dad is and he wrote that he s very happy because the dry leaves float in through the bars and he imagines they re letters from me Many thanks to Penguin Books Ltd and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest reviewMy reviews can also
