Summary In the Distance

Hernán Díaz Ê 9 Read Read & download î In the Distance 109 En the vanishing silhouettes for a mirage But there were no such travelers the moving shadows he saw almost every day in the distance were illusions With the double intention of getting away from the trail and the cold he had traveled south for daysHernán Díaz is the author of Borges Between History and Eternity Bloomsbury 2012 managing editor of RHM and associate director of the Hispanic Institute at Columbia University He lives in New Yor. What a little gem of a novel hidden away in the Tournament of Books longlist It s a Western in as much as it is set in the West but to uote the author from this interview There are many fossilized moments of the Western genre that appear throughout the novel but I tried to disappoint and go against them I wanted to write a book that relies on the Western tradition but ultimately subverts it I found it such a contrast reading this a few months after tackling Lonesome Dove a literal and figurative giant of the genre Landscapes are really the only thing the two novels share and even then Diaz keeps it deliberately vague We know our protagonist Hakan essentially roams in solitude for much of the novel through vast deserts and plains but few place names are attached Likewise he meets characters who occasionally are named but are mostly just transitoryThis is a novel of solitude A Western very much from the point of view of an outsider or at least one who see s himself as other In this way this is such a perfect example of an immigrant experience story I don t think I have read another book that conveys so well being in a country where you don t speak the language For a good portion of the novel Hakan intuit s the meaning of conversations by expressions and gestures and Daiz passes this along to the reader by not allowing us the dialogue either I thought that was a master strokeMore from the author on this The experience of foreignness has determined my entire life I wanted to re create that feeling In doing so I tried to transcend the obvious fact that the protagonist is a foreigner I tried to make genre and even language itself feel foreign But at the same time this is a very American story which makes us remember that foreignness is part of the American experience to begin with All of that is weaved into the book and it s central to what I was trying to say In the Distance is a deeply affecting novel if you let yourself into it it took me a few chapters to warm to it I also had some areas of concern Namely the conveniently placed science Hakan hears about evolutionary theory from a traveling naturalist comes to be an expert animal dissector does a complex operation on a horse learns sterile surgical techniues observes upside down images as light through a pinhole if he had the resources I am sure he would have invented photography He digs himself a complex underground hideout complete with what seemed like a hinged roof system I mean yes it is awesome to read about these exploits but it started to weigh on my mind how implausible all this was Hakan became a fabled giant miraculously acuiring whatever skills he needed for survival but oddly learning to follow a compass was not one of them These are uibbles mostly this is very good and I would love to see it on film It would be 2 hours of mostly just a man riding through a desert and I think it could be stunning Note for film makers Alexander Skarsgard as Hakan please Soundtrack by Nick Cave similar to what he did for the film The Proposition Yoshitsune and the Thousand Cherry Trees A Masterpiece of the Eighteenth century Japanese Puppet Theater Translations from the Asian Classics protagonist Hakan essentially roams in solitude for much of the novel through vast deserts and Premeditated Acts plains but few The Fan Tan Players place names are attached Likewise
