La parte inventada by Rodrigo Fresán( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"¿Cómo funciona la mente de un escritor? La parte inventada busca respuesta a esa pregunta adentrándose en la mente de un escritor que trata de escribir su propia historia. O de reescribirla a su manera. La historia de alguien que conoció cierto éxito hace unos años, en el siglo y milenio pasado; pero que ahora siente que ya no hay lugar para él, ni en el mundillo literario ni en el gran mundo. Y que --entre las partículas aceleradas de letras de Francis Scott Fitzgerald, música de Pink Floyd, un antiguo juguete a cuerda y el paisaje de las playas de la infancia-- cree que ha llegado el momento de contar su versión del asunto ... ±Con el tiempo, le preguntarán, una y otra vez, aquello de "¿Cómo se le ocurren esas ideas que escribe?" Interrogante casi obligado al que se responde -al que él responderá, siempre-- con vaguedades eternas o con certezas que se olvidan al día siguiente. Y se preguntará a sí mismo cómo es que nunca le preguntan algo mucho más importante o, al menos, más interesante. Por qué nunca le preguntan "¿Cómo se le ocurrió la idea de ser escritor?"--Page 4 of cover

The invented part by Rodrigo Fresán( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A kaleidoscopic, open-hearted, shamelessly polymathic storyteller, the kind who brings a blast of oxygen into the room."--Jonathan Lethem. An aging writer, disillusioned with the state of literary culture, attempts to disappear in the most cosmically dramatic manner: traveling to the Hadron Collider, merging with the God particle, and transforming into an omnipresent deity -- a meta-writer -- capable of rewriting reality. With biting humor and a propulsive, contagious style, amid the accelerated particles of his characteristic obsessions -- the writing of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the music of Pink Floyd and The Kinks, 2001: A Space Odyssey, the links between great art and the lives of the artists who create it -- Fresan takes us on a whirlwind tour of writers and muses, madness and genius, friendships, broken families, and alternate realities, exploring themes of childhood, loss, memory, aging, and death. Drawing inspiration from the scope of modern classics and the structural pyrotechnics of the postmodern masters, the Argentine once referred to as "a pop Borges" delivers a powerful defense of great literature, a celebration of reading and writing, of the invented parts -- the stories we tell ourselves to give shape to our world. Rodrigo Fresan is the author of nine books of fiction that together compose an expansive, interconnected fictional universe -- a complex system of storylines, resonances, and self-reference that call to mind the works of David Foster Wallace, Thomas Pynchon, and Roberto Bolano. Will Vanderhyden received fellowships from the NEA and Lannan Foundation to work on The Invented Part"--

La parte soñada by Rodrigo Fresán( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Cómo sueña un escritor? La parte soñada es el segundo volumen de la trilogía en la que Rodrigo Fresán investiga el mecanismo y los engranajes que hacen funcionar la mente de un escritor. La parte soñada busca respuestas a esta pregunta explorando las visiones vigilantes de alguien cansado de perseguir la interpretación de su vida sonámbula y de esperar a que su obra en trance recupere el sentido. O tal vez sigue el tránsito de alguien con demasiada energía para reinterpretarlas y reescribirlas a su manera mientras cuenta mucho, mucho más que ovejas. Una misteriosa fundación que se dedica a la preservación de los cada vez más escasos y valiosos sueños, una terrorista psycho-lírico-fotofóbica, una canción de cuna eléctrica y mercurial, tres hermanas lunáticas (y un hermano eclipsado) escribiendo desde el lado oscuro de las más profundas y borrascosas cumbres del espacio, unareclusa alucinada y una familia alucinante, un genio adicto a las mariposas y un agente del FBI adicto a ese genio, un tío ácido y lisérgico y unos padres modelos pero nada modélicos, una revolucionaria puesta en escena de Shakespeare para hijos de guerrilleros-chic, una ciudad de librerías insomnes, y un escritor que tal vez sea centenario. O no. Ese escritor que ya no escribe ni duerme y que intenta recuperar la trama de una noche de su infancia. Esa noche en la que abrió los ojos para siempre, para ya nunca cerrarlos, para no dejar de soñar con esa noche y para, tal vez, despertarse y por fin descansar en paz. Reseña: Rodrigo Fresán es un escritor maravilloso. John Banville
