"السيد كراوس " جزء من سلسلة الحي أو “ The Neighborhood” والتي قدمها لنا الكاتب البرتغالي
غونزالو تافاريس الحاصل على جائزة خوزية ساراماغو
الأدبية عام 2005 عن روايته الثالثة " القدس".


الرواية التي بين يدينا الآن تحكي قصة السيد كراوس
-وهو كاتب نمساوي في الحقيقة - الذي يعمل كمؤرخ
للأحداث الكبرى خاصة السياسية منها ،فيبدأ بكتابة
روايتنا هذه وهي تدور حول زعيم لا يفقه من أمور
الزعامة شيء والأكثر عجباً أنه محاط ببطانة أو مساعدين
سذج ، إذ أنهم يوافقونه على أغرب قراراته وأكثرها جنوناً
طاعة عمياء لا تخدم إلا

"- As decisões seriam depois do jogo - e os indivíduos sérios iriam decidir-se pela vitória de uma ou de outra equipa, independentemente dos golos, e não influenciados por paixões que pudessem existir antes, mas sim após uma reflexão lógica sobre o que realmente aconteceu.
- Manter um jogo apaixonante já não é digno de um século onde a racionalidade exige outro tratamento dos acontecimentos.
- Exacto.
- Racionalidade e democracia, importância da opinião e do voto de cada cidadão: eis o futebol do p

Why, why do I keep reading this guy? This is the 17th "book" Ive read from GMT... or, should I say, his notes that somehow get published regardless of quality?

This is the worst book from the "Neighbourhood" series - you can almost giggle a couple of times, at most, and its so useless and arrogant - like almost everything the guy writes.

You know, he has some good books, but the publishers dont care if they print a good book or a bad one. Because GMT is what we call HYPE. He is Brazil we always ha

Quote : " Toute société, tout quartier littéraire doit avoir son Karl Kraus, on peut se passer de Zola et des Balzac, n'importe quel membre de l'OULIPO fera l'affaire, Emilio Salgari ou Jules Verne sont bons à avoir mais pas essentiels, et un Schopenhauer ou un Borges conféreront du prestige à l'ensemble. Mais si l'on veut que le quartier ait l'électricité, il lui faut un Karl Kraus. En effet, nous le savons tous, il y a des écrivains qui sont eux-mêmes des prises de position plutôt que des oeuv ...more

O livro segue sempre o mesmo tom surreal, irónico, satírico e antitético. Ou se entra na onda e se dá valor pelo exercício imaginário do autor, ou então se fica aleado do livro no seu todo. No meu caso foi o segundo.
