Tietoja tekijästä

Ethan Canin was born in Michigan, in 1960. Although he did not publish his first book, a collection of short stories titled Emperor of the Air until 1988, he has enjoyed considerable success in a short period of time. The collection of short stories received high praise and encouragement from näytä lisää Danielle Steel, Canin's high school English teacher. All the more impressive is the fact that the book was written and published while Canin was at Harvard Medical School, where he received his M.D. in 1992. Canin asserts that medicine is a more useful profession than fiction writing. Canin's subsequent books include The Palace Thief (1994), a collection of stories that appeared in Esquire, Granta and The Paris Review; the novel Blue River (1991); and For Kings and Planets (1998). In addition to his M.D., Canin earned his undergraduate degree at Stanford in 1982 and his M.F.A. from the University of Iowa in 1984. Canin lives in California and has taught creative writing at the University of Iowa, Columbia University, The University of Michigan, The University of California at Irvine, and San Francisco State University.

Abandoning first attempt at this one. It feels like a chore and the library due date is looming. Others say this is a work of genius so I may come back to it later but right now it's not working for me.

La inextricable relación entre el ayer y el hoy, entre la vida y la muerte, concentra todo el interés de August Kleinman. A sus setenta y ocho años, viudo, con tres hijos y muy rico, Kleinman rememora su vida intentando explicarse cómo un muchacho judío que huyó de la Alemania nazi ha llegado a ser quien es. No hay una sucesión cronológica en sus recuerdos, éstos surgen de forma desordenada y aleatoria, tal como funciona la memoria, creando un efecto asombroso y casi musical de simultaneidad con el presente del anciano. Su infancia, su precipitada huida de Alemania con su madre, su adolescencia en un barrio humilde de Nueva York, el amor, el trabajo, el trato con sus hijos, el lazo con su nieto recién nacido, su incómoda relación con el dinero, el nexo cuestionado y siempre presente con el judaísmo; cada paso de su camino está ahí, pero lo que hace única su historia sucedió en una cueva de una isla del Pacífico, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. De aquella gruta, Kleinman salió con una carta que un soldado japonés había escrito a su amada y, más de medio siglo después, decide emprender el viaje siempre postergado. Ha de ir a Japón a entregar esa misiva, porque lo que sucedió en aquella cueva profunda, húmeda y oscura, es la verdadera clave de su existencia.… (lisätietoja)
