    READ Zazpi etxe Frantzian 107 Zazpi etxe FrantzianThe book opens with a rather dour new officer arriving by boat on his first posting abroad The officer Chrysostome doesn’t attempt to fit in with his fellow officers and they in turn despise his puritan upbringing not only is he blatantly religious to a fundamental degree but he refuses the usual soldierly fun of gambling getting drunk and raping the native womenfolk They also fear him This man could shoot the eyebrows of a mosuito at five hundred pacesThe setting for this novel is the garrison of Yagambi on the banks of the River Congo and the year is 1903 The senior officer is Captain Lalande Biran who would prefer to be back in Paris freuenting the lounges of the Literati with his wife of her later releasing the odd book of poetry than commanding eighteen white officers of the Force Publiue and the Askaris native soldiers recruited to help uell the other natives who have the audacity to rebel intermittentlyTime goes really slow her

    READ Zazpi etxe Frantzian 107 Zazpi etxe FrantzianOne dimensional characters and an unremittingly tawdry bleak atmosphere Ploughs similar terrain to Joseph Conrad and JG Farrell but with nothing like the emotional force of the former or the subtly drawn social intricacies of the latter The publisher’s blurb describes it as “blackly comic” but any comedy was completely lost on me

    READ Zazpi etxe Frantzian 107 Zazpi etxe FrantzianBernardo Atxaga is an author from the Basue Country in Northern Spain who writes in Euskera Basue and Spanish Seven Houses in France was written in his mother tongue and translated into Spanish under his supervision and then into English This double translation doesn’t seem to show perhaps because the translator is Margaret Jull Costa who has translated the most notable of Iberian authors including the Nobel Prize winning José Saramago She has captured Atxaga’s ironies perfectly The blurb on the back cover of this novel includes a reference to Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and there are some superficial similarities Seven Houses in France is set in the remote reaches of the Congo River in the days of colonialism and there is likewise a character whose arrival upsets the established order of things In Heart of Darkness Conrad redefined what savag

    READ Zazpi etxe Frantzian 107 Zazpi etxe FrantzianWhen it comes to tales of corruption in the Belgian Congo it’s hard to compete with the canonical sualor of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness But Seven Houses in France manages to infuse a colorful layer of vulgarity and humor into a familiar portrait of abuse The book’s title refers to the houses Captain Biran has been able to purchase for his wife—one for each year he spent in Africa—with money from the mahogany and ivory he stealthily ships out of the jungle The arrival of an oddly disciplined soldier named Chrysostome however changes the tenor of the life in Yangambi Chyrsostome’s chaste habits and perfect marksmanship make him an object of both scorn and envy among his rakish compatriots and it doesn’t take long for tensions to spiral out of control plunging the camp into chaos Captain Biran

    READ Zazpi etxe Frantzian 107 Zazpi etxe FrantzianJust finished reading this and not for the first time with a foreign language book I don't think the writing style has travelled well It's as though the literal meaning has been translated but the soul of the novel the authors voice has been well and truly lost Fascinating setting interesting set up but ultimately a bit of a let down


  • Chad Post

    READ Zazpi etxe Frantzian 107 Zazpi etxe FrantzianThis is a strange book It's enjoyable enough although the whole thing feels like a set up for something but that payoff scene never comes Still Atxaga is a solid writer and I want to check out his other books especially since they're set in the Basue Country
