Book Description

16 May 2011 Spanish Literature Series
Spain s greatest living novelist takes on the Cyber Age. In Exiled from Almost Everywhere, Juan Goytisolo s perverse mutant protagonist the Parisian Monster of Le Sentier is blown up by an extremist bomber and finds himself in the cyberspace of the Thereafter with an infinite collection of computer monitors. His curiosity piqued, he uses the screens at hand to explore the multiple ways war and terrorism are hyped in the Hereafter of his old life where he once happily cruised bathrooms and accosted children. Ricocheting from life to death and back again, meeting various colorful demagogues along the way the imam Alice, a pedophile Monsignor, and a Rastafarian rabbi our Monster revisits seedy democracies that are a welter of shopping-cities and righteous violence voted in by an eternally duped citizenry and defended by the infamous erogenous bomb. At once fantastical and cruelly real, Exiled from Almost Everywhere hurtles the reader through our troubled times in a Swiftian series of grisly cartoon screenshots.

Product Description

Review

Juan Goytisolo is the best living Spanish novelist. --Times Literary Supplement

Under the appearance of a wicked romp, Exiled From Almost Everywhere is a profound work that demands close attention from its readers who, as the author confesses at the end, must remain bewildered by its Wonderland invention. Something has taken place, something has been described that escapes the frame of the story, in which, magically, reader, writer and murky protagonist coalesce --Alberto Manguel, Guardian, 14 May 2011

Undoubtedly the greatest living Spanish novelist. --Carlos Fuentes

About the Author

Born in 1931, Juan Goytisolo went into voluntary exile in 1956 and has never returned to live in Spain. A bitter opponent of the Franco regime, his early novels were banned in his native country. He divided his time between Paris and Marrakesh until the death of his wife, Monique Lange, at which time he moved permanently to Marrakesh. Peter Bush has translated nine books by Juan Goytisolo, including Exiled from Almost Everywhere and Juan the Landless, as well as novels by other prominent Spanish and Latin American writers.
