Palinuro’s obsessive fantasizing about the personal life of objects in his room including an unbeatable passage on the dying days of his mirror ; the mexxico, don Prospero’s compulsive reading of the encyclopedia; and a Proustian description of childhood, are all searingly beautiful. Of a broken self splintering into a thousand mirrored and mirroring shards.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Forma, fondo y lenguaje. Five stars for the mirror who died. I love it from the first moment, but also know that if this wants to really earn that love, it will have to continuously startle and surprise me by carving a path in some yet unknown and unexpected direction through its universe, rather than just rest on its endless allusions, episodes, anatomies, and sheer love of language.


Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I keep seeing Rabelais’s name in reference to some of the books I have been reading.

I find this a hard book to recommend to anyone.
