    77 Author Guillermo Saccomanno Mobi Æ Paperback ñ Srlltd 77 Author Guillermo SaccomanA winding sometimes fascinating claustrophobic novel about life under Videla in Argentina The lead Gomez is something of a cipher though everything he gets up to gay affairs with police officers sheltering pregnant dissidents writing essays on nothingness is fascinating The book can be a bit confusing which I think is an effort to depict life in Argentina in the 70s Characters flit in and out vanishing and reappearing Time behaves oddly Violence peppers the margins It’s best of all in its subplots which are mystic

    77 Author Guillermo Saccomanno Mobi Æ Paperback ñ Srlltd 77 Author Guillermo SaccomanThe second novel from Saccomanno in English translation is a much tamer affair than the comic take on Dante’s Inferno the exuberant monster Gesell Dome A snapshot of the seventies inside the Argentine Videla regime the terror tickled lead Gómez relates tales of past acuaintances among them two young revolutionaries an OAP skirt chaser a macho muchacho cop lover and a neighbour into hair burning occult practices while relating his own erotic adventures in the realm of nubile youths An inventive pensive and comic series of scenes and remembrances the novel evokes the uotidian terror experienced when living under a corrupt and violent regime As Western democracy arseplummets into the new autocracy with post

    77 Author Guillermo Saccomanno Mobi Æ Paperback ñ Srlltd 77 Author Guillermo SaccomanWell this is my second novel with Guillermo Saccomanno as the author after I started reading his monumental epic Gesell Dome this autumn And while I did not find time enough to finish this earlier work I happened to pick up this one this month This was one of the new releases by Open Letter publisher this year The plot and the narrative structure in this book is wholly different than the earlier novel While the previous novel was like 'a raging sea of souls tenuous and disenchanted sinking into the mortal uagmire of reflections of their reeking souls tenebrous and culpable' this one novel is indeed 'a savage indictment of a totalitarian regime told in hallucinatory prose from the pen of a writer who has a penchant for a style that is wholly original and inventive' In all versimilitude this novel tells the story of a Buenos Aires in 1977 in the darkest days of the Videla dictatorship The story is told through flashbacks and recollections of a gay high s

    77 Author Guillermo Saccomanno Mobi Æ Paperback ñ Srlltd 77 Author Guillermo SaccomanThis is the second novel by award winning Argentinian author Guillermo Saccomanno translated to English by Andrea G Labinger for Open Letter books and it is a good one The main story takes place in 1977 during the period called The Dirty War that followed the military displacement of Isabel Peron From this period of Government sponsored terrorism came the term The Disappeared referring to the estimates of 30000 people arrested kidnapped and murdered by police death suads Saccomanno's narrator reflects back on this period when he was a teacher and tells the story not just from his perspective but also in subplots relat

    77 Author Guillermo Saccomanno Mobi Æ Paperback ñ Srlltd 77 Author Guillermo SaccomanThis is mostly harsh and relentless Saccomanno's prose is clean and uiet The novel does meander a bit in the second half; the seuence with Gomez sheltering the dissidents seems to be a bit of a digression

    77 Author Guillermo Saccomanno Mobi Æ Paperback ñ Srlltd 77 Author Guillermo SaccomanThough written in 2008 this has only just been published in English This is Buenos Aires in 1977 under the Videla regime Green Ford Falcons hover ominously on every street corner and police beat or imprison people for no apparent reason and yet the residents of Buenos Aires try to go about their normal business But looking the other way eventually becomes an untenable proposition for the protagonist secondary school teacher Gómez A student gets taken by gunpoint from his class and he finds himself involved with a homophobic cop Before long two young dissidents show up seeking refuge at his apartment and he is involved then he ever thought he could be As attractive a premise as it seems I found Saccomanno’s writing did not hold my attention; fascinating as a series of occasional vignettes but with little to hold them together
