The reminder of that had me spiraling a bit. And what I choose to read from this point forward with the measly time I have left will compose the rest of me. The pressure is real.

In my favorite Aira books, what feels to be happening is Cesar emptying all of his pockets and blindly launching into a narrative about the contents. He does it with a brilliant combination of almost hyperbolic self-deprecation and irreverent confidence. Birthday is among his best.

It is a patchwork of brief stories and philosophizing, connected with hilariously reiterated exclamations , sometimes near-aphorisms. View 2 comments. Dec 22, Deni rated it really liked it. In fact, Aira makes a solid case for this being a short intellectual biography of the Argentinian author.
Yet, the man is devious enough to embellish the facts to make a good story, which this is. What distinguishes Aira's fictions from all others is the forward motion of the story even if he leaves characters and events in the lurch.
In his Dinner , the dead come to life in the middle of the story and become zombies. When the residents of Colonel Pringles, Argentina figure out to send them back to the cemetery, the story goes on as if the whole zombie episode had never happened. The fact of the matter is that I am addicted to Aira's work and have read everything I could find that has been translated into English. Good stuff! My first time reading Aira, and likely a poor place to start.
This memoir is funny, thoughtful and at times hits at something like clarity. Es como sentarse a escuchar a Aira decir sus boludeces geniales. Muy interesante. Vale la pena porque algunas ideas que condensa son perlas. De paso, se lee en dos horitas y te deja pensando y queriendo subrayar por todas partes. Maybe my favorite of his, he said shortly after reading.

Or a writer I follow who posts long tirades about nothing in particular but production of tirades themselves. I love all his books, this one perhaps especially because it is his own reflections on reflecting on his process, the quick asides to think through and around the idea of aging, time and production, and various other miscellaneous concepts.

He's a treasure. Birthday by Cesar Aira came out twenty years ago and was recently translated brilliantly by Chris Andrews. For Birthday, Aira, for his 50th year of life, wrote about writing, living, dying, and knowing. I loved so many passages of this book. I feel like Aira steps his feet into my soul and reads aloud what I needed to hear, maybe the words on these pages are something else entirely and I have hallucinated the entire story.
Knowing that all he knows is not all; this to me encapsulates it perfec Birthday by Cesar Aira came out twenty years ago and was recently translated brilliantly by Chris Andrews. Knowing that all he knows is not all; this to me encapsulates it perfectly. I feel the ignorance of life deep in my cellular structure - which I could scarcely identify under a microscope - which by luck alone I could bring to a focus - and never tell you about how it's glassware truly works; I feel this ignorant fool again when I remember I have only just found out a month ago that Cesar Aria exists on the planet, yet he speaks to me as if I've known him for all his fifty years; though I have only lived a mere thirty, and then I realize again, this book is twenty years old; How is this?

Cumpleaños by César Aira
En realidad la esencia no cambia. Por supuesto que la infancia es un tesoro muy serio para mi. Ese fue el punto de partida Para ir tras algo, amarlo incondicionalmente A veces hay cosas que nos permiten enfrentarnos a nosotros mismos. En realidad, es lo mismo; cuando juegas o escribes algo, no necesariamente tienes que experimentarlo o ser testigo de cualquier cosa que suceda. Se trata de entender ese sentimiento. No, pertenecen a un muchacho que amo , a Nalan Alaca.
