My Buried Book

Mauro Libertella

NOVEL. MANSALVA, 2013. 77 PAGES

"How is an inheritance constructed, or dismantled? This is one of the greatest questions of literature. Fathers and sons: Turgenev, Kafka, Beuys. What aspects of a father's literature die along with him, and what does that disappearance augur? In this heroic, heartfelt book, both a memoir about a relationship and an exploration of death, Mauro Libertella takes on a distinguished mantle. I cried when I read it." Francisco Garamona

"Héctor Libertella invented the Argentine version of an alchemical tradition and was consumed in the flame of his words. Like the snake Ouroboros, Mauro wraps himself around the gap left by a person to whom he was desperately close, forming an unbreakable connection to him with great sensitivity." Daniel Guebel

"A father locks himself away, determined to remain invisible, so as to complete his work. Héctor Libertella dies and Mauro Libertella writes." Fabián Casas

"Mi libro enterrado (My Buried Book) is an incredible reading experience. I've never felt anything like it: his ability to touch us with that quiet, intense writing is incredible. After this brief roller coaster of 77 pages (you feel compelled to read it all the way through in one sitting), you end up transformed." Rosario Bléfari

"This is a serious, very beautiful book that is neither a settling of accounts nor a eulogy. Once you've immersed yourself, you sense other words twinkling messily but inevitably and very clearly: nobility and love." Alejandro Zambra

"Mi libro enterrado is an incredible reading experience. I've never felt anything like it: his ability to touch us with tha quiet, intense writing is incredible"

Rosario Bléfari

 

"This is a beautiful, intense book written with perfect, moving precision."

Fabián Casas
