Description

Even though Munoz Molina makes the reader want to read his short novel without wanting to stop, this reader enjoyed reading it for the whole purpose of disliking the male protagonist more and more as the plot went on. Mario is a weakling, a man who is so afraid of losing Blanca, his wife, that he will not be himself.

Antonio Muñoz Molina (born 10 January 1956) is a Spanish writer and, since 8 June 1995, a full member of the Royal Spanish Academy. In 2013 he received the Prince of Asturias Award for literature. Muñoz Molina was born in the town of Úbeda in Jaén province. He studied history of art at the University of Granada and journalism in Madrid. He began writing in the 1980s; his first published book, El Robinsón urbano, a collection of his journalistic work, was published in 1984.

En ausencia de Blanca book. The desperate answer that Antonio Muñoz Molina proposes in this short, circular novella is a model of literary strategy and style, a splendid homage to Flaubert. We’re always at the mercy of translators but I can attest to the beautiful writing. It’s a short book, at 134 pages, tightly written.

Mario Lopez, a young man who never stayed after work for the usual happy hour, lives almost exclusively for his wife, Blanca. For a civil employee like him, whose life is monotonous, Blanca embodies the sunshine in his life, and in return, he brings tranquility and stability to hers. Mario however has a constant fear of losing her, a fear of abandonment and the outside world will manage to make that happen. Description in Spanish: Mario, un joven funcionario de provincias, vive dedicado a su trabajo y, sobre todo, a su mujer, Blanca, por quien siente una profunda fascinación. Juntos forman una pareja complementaria: él encarna la sencillez, la paz del hogar, la fortaleza; ella, en cambio, representa el lado exquisito de la vida, pero también la inestabilidad. Por eso Mario vive intranquilo, siempre alerta. Percibe que algo inquietante amenaza su unión.

Well worthwhile to read and pause to consider relations between people in general. Te previous assessment written here would rather just read about characters like him/herself rather than learn how characters displaying different behaviour pose a different view of a plot's narrative. The prose is well thought out and perhaps the character of Mario is not to be taken as a character "one identifies with" but rather one that sheds light on an extreme behaviour that reveals something else.

Even though Munoz Molina makes the reader want to read his short novel without wanting to stop, this reader enjoyed reading it for the whole purpose of disliking the male protagonist more and more as the plot went on. Mario is a weakling, a man who is so afraid of losing Blanca, his wife, that he will not be himself. There are times when he seems to want to quit this masochistic relationship, and face losing his wife in order to be himself and live his real life, but he never does it. The one redeeming moment when he would tell his spoiled, purposeless, drug-alcohol-sex addicted wife to walk out the door, never comes to the dismay of this reader and those other readers who have to put up with two of the most pitiful characters in contemporary Spanish narrative.
