Soon the fog settled over Morini.
At first he tried to keep going, but then he realized that he was in danger of tipping his wheelchair into the pool, and he decided not to risk it. When his eyes had adjusted, he saw a rock jutting from the pool, like a dark and iridescent reef. Some of the thoughts I had back then still scare me.
One day I confronted one of the managers. I told him I was sick of making those idiotic mugs. This manager was a good man, his name was Andy, and he always tried to make conversation with the workers. Are you serious, Dick? Completely serious, I answered. Haas calls a press conference where he claims that Daniel Uribe, son of a rich local family, is responsible for the murders. The Part about Archimboldi[ edit ] This part reveals that the mysterious writer Archimboldi is really Hans Reiter, born in in Prussia.
This section describes how a provincial German soldier on the Eastern Front became an author in contention for the Nobel Prize.
Bubis, whom we met in the first part, turns out to have been Baroness von Zumpe; her family were a major part of Archimboldi's childhood, since his mother cleaned their country home and young Hans spent a lot of time with the Baroness's cousin, Hugo Halder, from whom he learned about the artistic life.
Reiter meets the Baroness again during the war while in Romania , and has an affair with her after the war she is then married to Bubis, the publisher. Critical reception[ edit ] The critical reception has been almost unanimously positive.
Before the English-language edition was published in , was praised by Oprah Winfrey in her O, The Oprah Magazine after she was given a copy of the translation before it was officially published.
Indeed, he produced not only a supreme capstone to his own vaulting ambition, but a landmark in what's possible for the novel as a form in our increasingly, and terrifyingly, post-national world. The Savage Detectives looks positively hermetic beside it. As in Arcimboldo 's paintings, the individual elements of are easily catalogued, while the composite result, though unmistakable, remains ominously implicit, conveying a power unattainable by more direct strategies.
Then there is 's resistance to categorization.
At times it is reminiscent of James Ellroy : gritty and scurrilous. At other moments it seems as though the Alexandria Quartet had been transposed to Mexico and populated by ragged versions of Durrell 's characters. There's also a similarity with W. Sebald 's work There are no defining moments in Mysteries are never resolved.
Each was presenting a paper on Archimboldi.
In every other respect, too, the conference was a failure. Only Pelletier and Espinoza attended the next German literature conference, held in Paris in January Morini, who had been invited too, was in worse health than usual just then, causing his doctor to advise him, among other things, to avoid even short trips.
The three met again at a German-language literature colloquium held in Bologna in And all three contributed to Number 46 of the Berlin journal Literary Studies , a monograph devoted to the work of Archimboldi.
In Number 38, Morini had published an article on the state of German literature instruction in Italy. And in Number 37, Pelletier had presented an overview of the most important German writers of the twentieth century in France and Europe, a text that incidentally sparked more than one protest and even a couple of scoldings.
Unsure, they decided to ask Morini. Morini abstained from comment. All they knew about Liz Norton was that she taught German literature at a university in London.
The Bremen German literature conference was highly eventful. The young German professors participating in the event were bewildered at first and then took the side of Pelletier and his friends, albeit cautiously.
Two days later, Schwarz and his minions counterattacked. They spoke of suffering. They spoke of civic duty. Then Liz Norton appeared, heaven-sent, and demolished the counterattack like a Desaix, like a Lannes, a blond site who spoke excellent German, if anything too rapidly, and who expounded on Grimmelshausen and Gryphius and many others, including Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, better known as Paracelsus.
That same night they ate together in a long, narrow tavern near the river, on a dark street flanked by old Hanseatic buildings, some of which looked like abandoned Nazi offices, a tavern they reached by going down stairs wet from the drizzle. Naturally, she was familiar with most of their work, but what surprised her pleasantly, of course was that they were familiar with some of hers, too.
The conversation proceeded in four stages: All four were single and that struck them as an encouraging sign. All four lived alone, although Liz Norton sometimes shared her London flat with a globe-trotting brother who worked for an NGO and who came back to England only a few times a year.
From that day on or that night on, not a week went by without the four of them calling back and forth regularly, sometimes at the oddest hours, without a thought for the phone bill. They met again at the postwar European literature colloquium held in Avignon at the end of When Pelletier returned from Avignon at the end of , when he opened the door to his apartment in Paris and set his bag on the floor and closed the door, when he poured himself a glass of whiskey and opened the drapes and saw the usual view, a slice of the Place de Breteuil with the UNESCO building in the background, when he took off his jacket and left the whiskey in the kitchen and listened to the messages on the answering machine, when he felt drowsiness, heaviness in his eyelids, but instead of getting into bed and going to sleep he undressed and took a shower, when wrapped in a white bathrobe that reached almost to his ankles he turned on the computer, only then did he realize that he missed Liz Norton and that he would have given anything to be with her at that moment, not just talking to her but in bed with her, telling her that he loved her and hearing from her lips that she loved him too.
Espinoza experienced something similar, though slightly different in two respects.

First, the need to be near Liz Norton struck some time before he got back to his apartment in Madrid. Second, among the ideal images of Norton that passed at supersonic speed through his head as the plane flew toward Spain at four hundred miles an hour, there were more sex scenes than Pelletier had imagined.
Not many more, but more. In they met at a panel discussion on contemporary German literature held in Amsterdam, a discussion within the framework of a larger discussion that was taking place in the same building although in separate lecture halls , encompassing French, English, and Italian literature.
It goes without saying that most of the attendees of these curious discussions gravitated toward the hall where contemporary English literature was being discussed, next door to the German literature hall and separated from it by a wall that was clearly not made of stone, as walls used to be, but of fragile bricks covered with a thin layer of plaster, so that the shouts, howls, and especially the applause sparked by English literature could be heard in the German literature room as if the two talks or dialogues were one, or as if the Germans were being mocked, when not drowned out, by the English, not to mention by the massive audience attending the English or Anglo-Indian discussion, notably larger than the sparse and earnest audience attending the German discussion.
But before coming to the crux of the matter, or of the discussion, a rather petty detail that nonetheless affected the course of events must be noted. Does anyone know the answer to the riddle?
Does anyone understand it? Is there by chance a man in this town who can tell me the solution, even if he has to whisper it in my ear? She said all of this with her eyes on her plate, where her sausage and her serving of potatoes remained almost untouched. Then the lady looked him in the eye and laughed and asked why her husband had won the first race.
In other words, he chose extravagance, carried away by the impromptu festivities that he and his father had arranged. Everything had to be squandered, including his victory, and somehow everyone understood it had to be that way, including the woman who came looking for you in the park.
Everyone except the little gaucho. Not for the little gaucho. A few minutes later, said the Swabian, I walked Archimboldi back to the boardinghouse. The next morning, when I went to get him to take him to the station, he was gone.
Astounding Swabian, said Espinoza. I want him all to myself, said Pelletier. Try not to overwhelm him, try not to seem too interested, said Morini. We have to treat the man with kid gloves, said Norton. Which means we have to be very nice to him. They were received by the editor in chief, a thin, upright man in his sixties by the name of Schnell, which means quick, although Schnell was on the slow side. He had sleek dark brown hair, sprinkled with gray at the temples, which only accentuated his youthful appearance.
When he got up to shake hands, it occurred to both Espinoza and Pelletier that he must be gay. Pelletier chided him for his comment, with its markedly homophobic overtones, although deep down he agreed, there was something eellike about Schnell, something of the fish that swims in dark, muddy waters. He had never seen Archimboldi, and the money, of which there was more and more, was deposited in a Swiss bank account.
There are only two people left here, besides Mrs.
The publicity director and the copy chief. By the time I came to work here, Archimboldi had long since vanished. Pelletier and Espinoza asked to speak to both women.
A tall man, very tall, she said.Great books develop their own mythology. This much we can imagine: In The Purloined Poe: The name Archimboldi appeared in a dictionary of German literature and in a Belgian magazine devoted—whether as a joke or seriously, he never knew—to the literature of Prussia. Literature and the Secret of the World: But the term also points up, through an ironic turn, the intensification of a real unfreedom that Marx originally associated with the origins of the free labor market: Subscription offers.
Unsure, they decided to ask Morini.
