I think of that as a sad compliment. May 30, Rafa rated it liked it. His novels have been translated into twelve languages; five of them SenselessnessThe She-Devil in the mirrorDance with SnakesRevulsionand Tyrant memory are available in English.
Moya’s friend no longer exists as a friend or as Vega, but we can tell that despite his best efforts, Bernhard will never be able to outrun his past.
It is striking to me to note that Bernhard was beloved by his own country, and many prizes were bestowed on him which Bernhard also used against them.
Aug 06, Evita Galindo-Doucette rated it it was amazing. I was once writing a paper for school and turned to ask a friend I was sitting with if it was crazy to say I believe that humans are inherently good; to which, my friend replied that well, it was the complete opposite of everything he believes, which, I get where he is coming from, but he is also a pretty big activist for animal rights and saving their habitats, which I think is a pretty good thing.
When Max Sebald reveals his disdain for something or other I hear his particular voice and find his arguments and complaints quite captivating as well. Just try and name a book by Alan Sillitoe aftera man whose last book of fiction was published in And it may also be just the perfect mash up.
Obviously, this rant did or I would not be writing about it. It is possible there is far too much truth in Vega’s words, and Moya’s countrymen simply do not appreciate it.
But nernhard onus is on the ranter to make our tirades interesting and well-written if they are to be ascco published in a book.

Vega answers that question in a number of ways, and few of his answers are sufficient. El asco lo lleva dentro el asqueado, amargado y desclasado intento de ser otro.
The topic of Vega’s book-length screed is the revulsion his homeland causes him, a combination of the bernhrad that have been festering within him for the eighteen years he’s been absent and the force with which he was reminded of those things which disgust him most about his countrymen upon his return. But not this one.
He has published eleven novels, five short story collections, two essay books, and a diary.
When he was twenty two years old, Moya: It’s not hard to believe that the author received death threats following the book’s publication. Thojas — El asco by Horacio Castellanos Moya.
In the end, what is important to me is what the rant is dealing with, from which the complaint derives it substance from, and if the rant can sustain itself and keep me interested. An incessant rant by a character named Edgardo Vega directed to, I suppose, anybody who might be listening, but in this case even more pointedly at the character Moya himself as receptor. Sadly, very few people in El Salvador have read Bernhard, and fewer still have a sense of humor. Oct 02, Charly rated it liked it.
There is a sense, detected almost immediately and which amplifies throughout, that Vega is the kind of person who lives his life so close to becoming unhinged at all times that, combined with the effects of his self-imposed isolation, leads him to take advantage of any audience he can get.
