The essays in this book range from the American satirist Sam Lipsyte to the reclusive Australian genius Gerald Murnane; from the "distant reading" of Franco Moretti to the legacy of Gordon Lish. Meditations on style, form and fictional worlds sit side-by-side with overviews of the cult status of Oulipo, the aftermath of modernism, and the history of continental philosophy. Infinite Fictions is indispensable reading for anyone interested in the forefront of literary thought.

✏Mac and His Problem Book Summary : Enrique Vila-Matas’s new novel is perhaps his greatest: 'playful and funny and among the best Spanish novelists' (Colm Tóibín) Mac is not writing a novel. He is writing a diary, which no one will ever read. At over sixty, and recently unemployed, Mac is a beginner, a novice, an apprentice – delighted by the themes of repetition and falsification, and humbly armed with an encyclopaedic knowledge of literature. Mac's wife, Carmen, thinks he is simply wasting his time and in danger of sliding further into depression and idleness. But Mac persists, diligently recording his daily walks through the neighbourhood. It is the hottest summer Barcelona has seen in over one hundred years. Soon, despite his best intentions (not to write a novel), Mac begins to notice that life is exhibiting strange literary overtones and imitating fragments of plot. As he sizzles in the heatwave, he becomes ever more immersed in literature – a literature haunted by death but alive with the sheer pleasure of writing. Intricate, erudite and practically fizzing on the page, Mac and His Problem is a masterpiece of metafiction and a testament to the power and playfulness of great literature.

📒Montano S Malady ✍ Enrique Vila-Matas

✏Book Title : Montano s Malady
✏Author : Enrique Vila-Matas
✏Publisher : New Directions Publishing
✏Release Date : 2007
✏Pages : 235
✏ISBN : 0811216284
✏Available Language : English, Spanish, And French

✏Montano s Malady Book Summary : The narrator of Montano's Malady is a writer who is so obsessed with literature that he finds it impossible to distinguish between real life and fictional reality. Part picaresque novel, part intimate diary, part memoir and philosophical musings, Enrique Vila-Matas's novel is a labyrinth in which writers as various as Cervantes, Sterne, Kafka, Robert Musil, Roberto Bolano, J. M. Coetzee, and W. G. Sebald crisscross on endlessly surprising paths. Trying to piece together his life of loss and pain, Vila-Matas gives us a look into the mind of someone struck by "literature-sickness," who, trying to piece together his life of loss and pain, leads the reader on an unsettling journey both through European cities and the pages of world literature.
