Norte Author Edmundo Paz SoldánHis own sympathies as an author but the attempt seems too calculated It doesn t help that the serial killer storyline is also police procedural in which he gets to explain why the illegal immigrant serial killer does not ndermine the plight of other A Cidade e as Serras undocumented people in America I agree but once the point seems pedanticThe bigger issue I have is the needless violence In the afterword the translator said that she and Paz Sold n worked hard to not make the violence gratuitous Inderstand that she had a complicated task a Bolivian author living in the US writing about Mexican characters learning American ways and if I nderstood Spanish and could compare the original ti the translation I Might Have Been Very ImpressedAs It Is Though She Failed have been very impressedAs it is though she failed keeping down the gratuity of the violence The opening chapter opens p with vivid descriptions of violence against women that are Historys Strongest Disciple Kenichi Vol 1 underexplained and overdescribed and the assaults they don t stop So much of the identity crisis is expressed by violating women s bodies that may be the point but Paz Sold n doesn t do much to explore this only takes it for granted I think perhaps the reason the only first person character is female is to balance the scales but she is also a very passive indecisive character so it doesn t help muchAt any rate the violence seems put here to make the book feel gritty and real and authentic but TW graphic scenes of rape murder mutilationNorte is Bolivian author Edmundo Paz Soldan s third novel originally written in Spanish and translated into English There are three distinctly related narrative threads within this novel two of which are inspired by real people The first is the story of Jesus a ruthless serial killer based on the life of Angel Maturino Resendiz who hopped freight trains throughout the US and murdered his victims in their homes near railroads from the mid 80s and throughout the 90s The second is the story of Martin based on the life of Martin Ramirez a self taught schizophrenic artist who languished in California s mental hospitals for thirty years before dying in one in 1963 The third is the present day story of Michelle and Fabian a Bolivian and Argentinian artist couple struggling with drugs and depressionThis book is not so much about the immigrant experience but about the pain of displacement and loss and being in placesnfamiliar and strange and far from home All four of the main characters struggle with madness a theme that runs prominently throughout the novel Martin s and Michelle s art is inspired by voices and the shifts in their environment Jesus acts are also inspired by voices that command him to kill women Jesus is a highly repugnant character perhaps one of the most awful people I ve ever had the displeasure of reading about There are very graphic and detailed scenes of rape murder and mutilation in this book The target of Jesus violence is women which he possesses a pathological hatred for I can where this would probably turn pathological hatred for I can see where this would probably turn good of readers off though personally I did not feel that the violence was too gratuitous reminder we are tal Three inconsistent stories that were not overly interesting or origin. Its protagonists and its structure Edmundo Paz Soldán’s Norte is a fast paced vivid and operatic blending of distinct voices Together they lay bare the darkness of the line over which these men like so many others have passed A prominent member of a new generation of Latin American writers Paz Soldán stands in defiant opposition to the magical realism of the past century instead grounding. ,


I read the English translation This is a tough book from three perspectives but one is a serial rapistmurderer which caught me off guard It s well written and the stories are loosely woven together However once I read the translator s notes which are at the end the book made MUCH sense and I wish I read this in Spanish I checked Norte out from the library based entirely on the cover and book title They caught my eye and intrigued me so much that I didn t even read the synopsis before start Right wing border stereotypes plus psychosis times 2 Senseless violence rape murder Incarceration to no good end Three separate narratives that fail to converge Disappointing Dick LitI picked that term p from Tatiana s review of another book with North in the title North Water She defines the term as pseudo manly books like The North Water which pretends to be some kind of deep tough literature but fails to hide that its author has an almost juvenile obsession with violence gore and bowel movements That seems fitting hereWhich isn t necessarily to say that Paz Sold n isn t a good writer He is a compelling one the story moves And even as it does it s obvious he s staking out meaning on a number of different moves And even as it does it s obvious he s staking out meaning on a number of different some of which bear attention and study than others The book comprises three stories on at different time periods that seem to intersect only faintly at least in terms of the characters meeting or hearing about one anotherBut he draws other connections among them with images a Saturday Evening Post cover and word choice And thematically There s the repeated estion of people being nable to find their voice to say what needs to be said one character refuses to speak much at all Another to be said one character refuses to speak much at all Another slow to learn to write A third "Is Searching For Her Voice The Novel "searching for her voice the novel its conclusion when she thinks she hasThere s also the connection to Bola o especially The Savage Detectives There are savages of various sorts here detectives and Latin Americans lost in a wider worldThere s also the estion of the way that the United States screws Cracked (Soul Eaters, up the identities of Mexicans and people of Mexican heritage it literally makes their identity problematic the border not only on a map but something that cuts through them Which is all well and good though to be honest I didn t feel that there was much life behind these themes Paz Sold n is an academic and it always felt as though the book was written to be analyzed by academicsThere s also the problem of the book treading on familiar territory Much of the action takes place in a Texasniversity town too may novels are set in colleges It is true that Paz Sold n is critical of academia sometimes lightly sometimes subtly and ferociously suggesting that Professors are in some sense scavengers picking the bones off of those who do actual work exploiting them for their own gain but he s neither the first second or last writer to Party Politics in America un sheath the knives for academiaThe other two stories are also fairly familiar There s the misunderstood artist in the insane asylum And the serial killer Again he tries to destabilize these to an extent the serial killer is an illegal immigrant which would seem to go against. Threenconnected men travel north each passing in isolation over one of the most troubled and controversial dividing lines in the world the Mexico US border But in a melee of language and blood their stories of a young serial killer a professor and his lover a graduate student who writes graphic novels and an outsider artist in a mental institution gradually begin to coalesce Daring in both.
