    1. [4.5] Write-ups said The African Shore was very strange. But such is the strangeness of other books I've read recently (The Devil's Workshop, Red Grass, The Iraqi Christ, Revenge) that it doesn't seem so weird as all that. What's remarkable is the clarity of the writing: the sort of writing that's good because you don't notice it at first - it communicates perfectly, not a word out of place. This novella is, for many, readable in one sitting - but it was taking a break from it that showed me jus [...]


    2. A beautiful book - one of those that when I finished I turned back to the start and read again, not to revisit some plot twist that I'd missed but simply for the pure pleasure of the prose.Rodrigo Rey Rosa is the literary heir to Paul Bowles, who translated all his previous works to appear in English, and this is clearly based on experiences from his time spent with Bowles in Tangier. The story is based on two separate tales, of a Columbian tourist stranded, not unwillingly, in Morocco after he [...]


    3. about a third of rodrigo rey rosa's dozen and a half books have been translated into english (many by his late friend paul bowles), and each offers a glimpse of talents impressive and diverse. the african shore (la orilla africana) - one of two runner-ups for 2014's best translated book award (won by krasznahorkai's incomparably impressive seiobo there below) - is a slim, evocative work from the guatemalan novelist and short story writer. seemingly disparate narratives are linked by a nocturnal [...]


    4. Absolutely amazing. Blown away by this book. Definitely the best thing I've read so far this year. So creepy, powerful, moving left me wordless. No wonder Bolaño was a fan--Rey Rosa has now jumped up to the top of my MUST READ list as a result of this book. The prose is flawless and immensely readable. The structure is also fantastic, very innovative. Cosmopolitanism, borders, migrants, exiles, drug smuggling, empathy, cultural misunderstandings, identity, modernity, elliptical references boy, [...]


    5. Una historia interesante, la narración definitivamente muy buena, los lugares bien descritos.¿Qué pasará con él?Dos historias que se unen en un instante y al otro se vuelven a separar, dejando a cada uno con las consecuencias de su forma de actuar.Buscar la "libertad" y quererla retener vaya ironía.



    6. Buena novela por parte de Rey Rosa. Le habría dado cinco estrellas si hubiera mantenido esa vibra de libro turístico que me estaba cautivando. Por desgracia, Rey Rosa comenzó a meterle aspectos de trama forzados a la historia casi hasta el final y eso terminó bajándole la calificación. No obstante, la primera parte me parece brillante.


    7. Starts outbulously, then becomes much more intriguing as the parallels between the two central characters become clear.


    8. From what I’ve heard, Hemingway, the bullfight lover and part-time resident of pre-Communist Cuba, has cast a shadow of sorts over the literature of the Spanish speaking world, which meant that it was only a matter of time before a Spanish writer out-Hemingway’d Hemingway. Well that author has finally arrived (in a larger amount of English translation, anyway): Rodrigo Rey Rosa, considered the best living writer from Guatemala and old friend and student of the late Paul Bowles. The author of [...]


    9. The African Shore came in for special mention at the Best Translated Book Award in 2014 with the judges noting:We found Rodrigo Rey Rosa’s short novel The African Shore, masterfully translated by Jeffrey Gray, to be almost the perfect counterpoint to Seiobo There Below. In its sonnet-like perfection, even a single out-of-place word would have marred this novel’s hypnotizing effect, so due praise must be given to Rey Rosa and Gray for presenting us with this seamless, engrossing story. We als [...]


    10. can't wait to read more rey rosaory of a man ;shipwrecked' in morocco (lost his passport) but is not in too big of a hurry to leave anyway, as he's getting used to his kif, and visiting and living in this new land where he can forget his troubles. rey rosa is paul bowles executor, but has much for humane way of dealing with his humans/characters.*Been busy building an opac, so just making placeholders for books I’ve read in march and april 2014. This is the opac thoughwr.entrsi/client/defa


    11. Half mystical, half all too real. Like a Borges story passed through Bolaño in a 21st century North African setting




    12. A remarkable novel that plumbs the depths of the Western and Eastern mindset. Told with sparseness and elegance, this book is a classic.
