Title: Great read
Content: Great read, only a little bit too short 😀
Title: Middle age angst!
Content: I enjoyed the book, easy to read and rather a clever picture of a decent man struggling to come to terms with his life.
Title: A difficult narrator for me to empathise with
Content: I confess, I couldn't really get behind the narrator of this short book with his macho language and male gaze. The existential angst about marriage, the oppressions of intimacy, are well done but as soon as the husband thinks he might be losing his wife, all his urge to possession re-emerges. And that old trope of a middle-aged man who has a young woman falling oh so easily for his charms gets a self-conscious nod - I'd like to think with a smirk of irony.
Title: Confessional, male, midlife angst.
Content: Argentine author Lucas suspects his wife is having an affair. Taking a daytrip to Uruguay to pick up his much needed $15k book advance, he attempts to consummate his infatuation with Guerra, a young woman he met only briefly several months earlier at a literary festival. Mairal gets inside the head of his protagonist, whose thoughts tumble out when drunk and stoned and on the brink of fulfilling his fantasy. This philosophical meditation on the loss of self in coupledom, points the way to true happiness as being through the appreciation of the little things in life. Pitch-perfect translation by Jennifer Croft. Astute. My thanks to NetGalley and Bloomsbury Publishing Plc (UK & ANZ) for the ARC.
Title: An intriguing 24 hours in the life of a struggling writer
Content: The Woman from Uruguay tells the story of Lucas, a struggling writer , who has to make a journey to Montevideo to collect an advance of $15,000 for producing a novel. His marriage is struggling and the money is a lifeline. On a previous visit to Montevideo he met the charismatic Guerra and since then she has been in his mind;so that when the opportunity to revisit the city arrives he envisages a day to rekindle the flame. However the day doesn’t go,as plannned and the reader is taken on a rollercoaster of events from the insanity of the first delights of infatuation to a change of circumstances that will have longer repercussions. The story is written as a narrative to his wife and recounts the fragility and expectations within relationships and the impact and realisation of what happens when we detour from the everyday. This is an intriguing read and pulls you into the world of Lucas- willing him to find that day of joy and equilibrium within his family life
Title: Nice human tale.
