La grande

Juan José Saer

NOVEL. SEIX BARRAL, 2005. 440 PAGES.

Final novel, this vast gallery of characters described in a vivid and meticulous style is also a compendium of the entire work of Saer and the culmination of his literary project. Another return to native soil that reveal to us the power of resurrection of this place, a kind of emotional homeland where the past is updated and made to vibrate unfailingly once again.

Among anecdotes and references that evoke a local avant-garde movement, the precisionism, the mainstays of the Saerian universe reappear. All emerge from an inaccessible past that nevertheless continues sending out its light.

In his rigorous work, a bold response to the challenge of putting experience into words, Saer reflected a comprehensive vision of the world. After his death, which occurred before he completed the last chapter of this book, the universal value of his vision and prose remain intact.
