The Passive Vampire

Initially released in 1945 by means of Les Éditions de l'Oubli in Bucharest, The Passive Vampire stuck the eye of the French Surrealists while an excerpt seemed in 1947 within the journal l. a. half du sable. Luca, whose paintings used to be trendy through Gilles Deleuze, makes an attempt right here to transmit the "shudder" evoked via a few Surrealist texts, equivalent to André Breton's Nadja and Mad Love, probing with acerbic humor the delicate boundary among "objective chance" and delirium.

Ormen

Stig Dagerman debuterade tjugotvå år gammal med romanen Ormen. Året var 1945 och den möttes av en förbluffad kritikerkår. "Så våldsamt övertygande har ingen svensk författare i detta sekel debuterat", skrev Olof Lagercrantz i DN.

Med sina egna ord, som blivit klassiska, beskrev Dagerman sitt förstlingsverk så här: "Författaren utför en undersökning över hur skräcken får en samling människor i sitt våld och hur de reagerar below trycket, var och en efter sina egna förutsättningar. Den tes han vill fastslå är att det främst gäller att erkänna den primitiva urångesten; den får icke förnekas. Ett samliv med ångesten är den enda livsform som kan skänka människan åtminstone någon liten möjlighet att uppleva sig själv. "

Nu utges Ormen med ett nyskrivet förord av Siri Hustvedt.

Estrafalario

«Estaba convencido de que morirse en primavera period un despropósito: el mundo ofrecía épocas más adecuadas para abandonarlo y sólo a un bohemio o a un anarquista se les podía ocurrir fallecer cuando todo en l. a. tierra empezaba a renacer; de tan asociales sujetos cabía esperar cualquier cosa, incluso que arrastrados por su perversidad fallecieran en señalados días de fiesta, el colmo, pues los días de fiesta estaban en los calendarios para celebrarlos con l. a. misa mayor, el concierto de los angeles banda municipal, el arroz con pollo comido en familia y l. a. corrida de toros, de haberla, y no para enlutarlos con un cadáver.

Sample text

He pointed with his index finger at invisible objects and murmured incomprehensible words. Other than you, no one paid him any attention. You guessed from this that he lived in the neighborhood, and that this square was his living room. Other homeless people hung around, some sitting on the ground, others standing still, waiting for who knows what. They were indifferent to each other; the passersby didn’t know they were there. They had become invisible. You approached a street sign in order to know where you were.

You decided to take the same route as the day before, to verify if what you had seen was now anchored in your memory. You didn’t look at the map, you didn’t hesitate once over changes in direction. You noticed the same details, signs, sidewalks, roadwork. Only the passersby broke the monotony of the spectacle. You felt your body tiring; this urban strolling was turning into an accidental gymnastic exercise. Having come back to your point of departure, you had lost any notion of time. You looked at your watch and were flabbergasted to discover that four hours had slipped by.

The private tennis court of a neighboring residence had been abandoned. Even in its heyday, it was only put to 34 use for ten days of the year. Poorly maintained, it ended up being forgotten, the net sagging in the middle, the white lines darkened, the clay invaded by green mushrooms. You used to see it through the thuja trees, at the edge of the property’s grounds, surrounded by a rusty fence, abandoned by adults, rediscovered on certain Sundays by children, similar to a haunted house where ghosts in old-fashioned sports outfits would prowl about in broad daylight.
