Book by Goytisolo Juan

Exiled From Almost Everywhere is perhaps the best work of Goytisolo's later period. The author, who in his 20s, wrote realistic novels that described the vulgar horrors of Franco's Spain, from which he was exiled, later began to develop a freer, less traditional, more ironic and humorous voice. Nowhere is this style more accomplished than in this novel, beautifully translated into English by Peter Bush . . . 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.Reseña del editor:
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.
