Don Carlos

(1994)
A novel by

 
 
Fiction. In the months of September and October 1833 a young Englishman known as Don Carlos finds himself in Buenos Aires. There he meets a casual laborer, Giovanni Graciani, from Genoa, Italy. This penetrating novel is a long letter Giovanni writes back home to his brother, recounting his own abandonment of faith, the politcal upheavals and bloody events of Argentine history, and his encounters with the man he calls Don Carlos -- An Englishman whose name he only mentions once, but is unforgettable in the memory: Charles Robert Darwin. "Short, concise, and almost flawless. You can compare it with Hamsun, Camus or whomever" -- Adresseavisen. "... one of the most important novels this year, maybe this decade." Dag og Tid. Part of Sun & Moon's Classics series. Translated from the Norwegian by James Anderson.
