Patria by Fernando Aramburu( Book )

45 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the story of two families in small-town Basque country, pitted against each other by the ideology and violence of the terrorist group ETA, from the unrelentingly grim 1980s to October 2011 when the group proclaimed an end to its savage insurgency. Erstwhile lifetime friends--especially the generation of parents on both sides--the two families become bitter enemies when a father of one is killed by ETA militants, among them one of the sons of the other family. Told through a succession of more than one hundred short sections devoted to a rich multiplicity of characters whose role in the story becomes clear as one reads. Homeland brilliantly unfolds in nonlinear fashion as it traces the consequences for the families of both the murder victim and the perpetrator. Aramburu alludes only obliquely to a historical matrix even as he focuses on the psychological complexity of his characters while building nearly unbearable narrative tension

Años lentos by Fernando Aramburu( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in Spanish and French and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A finales de los anos sesenta, el protagonista, un nino de ocho anos, se va a vivir con sus tios a San Sebastian. Alli es testigo de como transcurren los dias en la familia y el barrio: su tio Vicente, de caracter debil, reparte su vida entre la fabrica y la taberna, y es su tia Maripuy, mujer de fuerte personalidad pero sometida a las convenciones sociales y religiosas de la epoca, quien en realidad gobierna la familia; su prima Mari Nieves vive obsesionada por los chicos, y el hosco y taciturno primo Julen es adoctrinado por el cura de la parroquia para acabar enrolado en una incipiente ETA. El destino de todos ellos -que es el de tantos personajes secundarios de la Historia arrinconados entre la necesidad y la ignorancia- sufrira, anos despues, un quiebro. Alternando las memorias dikensianas del protagonista con los apuntes del escritor, Anos lentos ofrece ademas una brillante reflexion sobre como la vida se destila en una novela, como se trasvasa el recuerdo sentimental en memoria colectiva, mientras su escritura diafana deja ver un fondo turbio de culpa en la historia reciente del Pais Vasco.--Amazon

Vida de un piojo llamado Matías by Fernando Aramburu( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nacido en la nuca de un maquinista, Matías aprende desde sus primeros pasos que un piojo siempre debe andar con los ojos bien abiertos. Enseguida tiene que hacer frente a las inundaciones jabonosas y las friegas con que la mano del gigante humano quiere expulsarlo, o buscar refugio ante un peine o el huracán de un secador. Un día su hermana le anima a buscar los manantiales próximos a esa montaña vertical que es la oreja, pero, jóvenes incautos, caerán prisioneros del rey de la caspa, y se verán condenados a trabajos forzados. De peripecia en peripecia, la vida de Matías es a su vez un inspirado homenaje a los clásicos de la picaresca y un tronchante relato de iniciación desde su originalísimo y diminuto punto de vista: "La gente cree que los piojos sólo sabemos picar y tumbarnos a la bartola entre una y otra picadura, pero no es verdad. ¡Como si no tuviéramos nuestros propios sentimientos!"

Autorretrato sin mí by Fernando Aramburu( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El nuevo libro de Fernando Aramburu, tras Patria, no es una novela y tampoco un ensayo: es tal vez el texto más personal y el más comprometido del autor, tal vez el más arriesgado. De lo que no cabe ninguna duda es de que es el más bello. En Autorretrato sin mí el lector sospecha que Aramburu habla de sí mismo, pero enseguida sentirá que habla de todos nosotros. Sin brizna alguna de exhibicionismo, tan omnipresente en muchas obras, estas prosas conforman el relato de la vida de un hombre en el que todos podemos reconocer al autor y reconocernos. Sus páginas plasman en escenas inolvidables las relaciones familiares, el padre, la madre, el amor, los hijos, los gozos y las angustias con que está hecha la biografía de todos nosotros ..." -- Site internet de l'éditeur
