Ways of going home by Alejandro Zambra( Book )

46 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ways of Going Home begins with an earthquake, seen through the eyes of an unnamed nine-year-old boy. He lives in an undistinguished middle-class housing development in Maipu, a town in the suburbs of Santiago, Chile. When the neighbors camp out overnight, the protagonist gets his first glimpse of Claudia, an older girl who asks him to spy on her uncle Raul. In the second section, the protagonist is the writer of the novel begun in the first section. His father is a man of few words who claims to be apolitical but who quietly sympathized - to what degree, the author isn't sure - with the Pinochet regime. His reflections on the progress of the novel and on his own life - which is strikingly similar to the life of his novel's protagonist - expose the raw suture of fiction and reality
My documents by Alejandro Zambra( Book )

29 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My Documents is the latest work from Alejandro Zambra, the award-winning Chilean writer whose first novel was heralded as the dawn of a new era in Chilean literature, and described by Junot Díaz as "a total knockout." Now, in his first short story collection, Zambra gives us eleven stories of liars and ghosts, armed bandits and young lovers--brilliant portraits of life in Chile before and after Pinochet. The cumulative effect is that of a novel--or of eleven brief novels, intimate and uncanny, archived until now in a desktop folder innocuously called "My Documents." Zambra's remarkable vision and erudition is on full display here; this book offers clear evidence of a sublimely talented writer working at the height of his powers."--Provided from Amazon.com
Multiple choice by Alejandro Zambra( Book )

22 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Named one of the best books of the summer by the Wall Street Journal, Elle, the Huffington Post and Purewow "Latin America's new literary star."--The New Yorker "Brilliant. Like a literary exercise for the mind, but strangely fun to decode."--Elle "The most talked-about writer to come out of Chile since Bolaño," (The New York Times Book Review), Alejandro Zambra is celebrated around the world for his strikingly original, slyly funny, daringly unconventional fiction. Now, at the height of his powers, Zambra returns with his most audaciously brilliant book yet. Written in the form of a standardized test, Multiple Choice invites the reader to respond to virtuoso language exercises and short narrative passages through multiple-choice questions that are thought-provoking, usually unanswerable, and often absurd. It offers a new kind of reading experience, one in which the reader participates directly in the creation of meaning, and the nature of storytelling itself is called into question. At once funny, poignant, and political, Multiple Choice is about love and family, authoritarianism and its legacies, and the conviction that, rather than learning to think for ourselves, we are trained to obey and repeat. Serious in its literary ambition and playful in its execution, it confirms Alejandro Zambra as one of the most important writers working in any language"--
Bonsai by Alejandro Zambra( Book )

51 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tale of a young writer who falls for a woman who disappears while he is pretending to edit a book that doesn't exist, it brilliantly explores the relationship between art, love, and life. And with a beguiling form that seems whimsical on the one hand, wiser-than-its-years on the other, it is a work of such striking originality and unusual beauty as to make it seem both simple and profound."--Jacket

Julio est étudiant en littérature au Chili lorsqu'il tombe amoureux de sa camarade Emilia avec laquelle il vit une histoire passionnelle. Huit ans plus tard, lorsqu'il écrit son premier roman, il décide de se servir de cette histoire comme trame narrative. Où commence la fiction, où s'arrêtent les souvenirs ? Dans ce va-et-vient entre littérature et réalité, les sentiments deviennent aussi complexes et fragiles que l'architecture délicate d'un bonsaï. (Source : jaquette)
