The Musical Brain

Free download » The Musical Brain A delirious collection of short stories from the Latin American master of microfiction César Aira–the author of at least eighty novels most of them barely one hundred pages long–The Musical Bra. C sar Aira s influences are rather apparent Marcel Schwob Raymond Roussel and of course Jorge Luis Borges but he is on the side of satire so in his hands symbolism surrealism and magical realism turn into the weapon of ridiculeThe little girl s rapid consumption of novelties was accepted as something natural even exciting This is how it should always be some people were thinking philosophically getting and losing enjoying and letting go Everything passes and that s why we re here Eternity and its or less convincing simulacra are not a part of life In the Caf is my favourite tale in the collection it s a great parable of art and gnoseology The title story The Musical Brain is almost the Kafkian fable of a cryptic metamorphosis but it is a murderous mockery Acts of Charity is an excellent philosophically satiric allegory of wealth and poverty The rich are always seduced by altruism and phi

Of course Cesar Aira has over 90 books his stories have such manic energy and a sneaky speed that somehow defies his brain trapped stories This collection gets its title from an enigmatic object in a real firework of a story that comes 13 of the way into this small book and sadly marks the end of its great moments however considering the collection s consistent narrator is ostensibly Aira himself bubbling over with stories that seem to take musical phrasing as of a narrative form than traditional literary arcs the title best doubles as a comment on the writer himself Only the final story one that seemed strangely disconnected from the rest of the set with its biographical bent seems to deal directly with music but Aira s style has that technical approach to slapdash jazziness and a slapdash jazz approach to the technical that ties it to great contemporary music forms It s problems are identical too caug

    KINDLE [The Musical Brain] In lieu of a reviewFreuently when reading Aira you come across passages which suggest the route by which he’ll proceed with the story—not a foreshadowing of the plot rather a hint of the device by which he’ll get there For me it’s part of what makes reading him so much fun eg Folklore and literature are so full of stories about greed
