Permanent

Juan José Saer

NOVEL, 1993. NEW EDITION SEIX BARRAL, 2003. 253 PAGES.

In clear, direct prose, the plot of Lo imborrable (Permanent) sees Carlos Tomatis wandering through a ghost town. His meeting with a pair of strange characters, Alfonso and Vilma, brings up a series of questions that transforms the read into a political gesture: Who is Walter Bueno? What are people saying about a passionately read novel? How does one construct a bestseller? What is a success?

As in all of Saer's work, rather than a plot what is offered is a coded version of real state of things, of perception and literature. And if memory suffers from partial blanks, fiction is there to reconstruct it.
