    About the Author

    Antonio Di Benedetto

    Antonio di Benedetto, born 2 November 1922 in Mendoza died on 10 October 1986 in Buenos Aires , was an Argentine journalist and writer.Di Benedetto began writing and publishing stories in his teens, inspired by the works of Fyodor Dostoevsky and Luigi Pirandello Mundo Animal, appearing in 1952, was his first story collection and won prestigious awards A revised version came out in 1971, but the Xenos Books translation uses the first edition to catch the youthful flavor.Antonio di Benedetto wrote five novels, the most famous being the existential masterpiece Zama 1956 Los suicidas The Suicides, 1969 is noteworthy for expressing his intense abhorrence of noise Critics have compared his works to Alain Robbe Grillet, Julio Cort zar and Ernesto S bato.In mid sixties or early seventies he caused a diplomatic faux pas at a NATO meeting when during a ceremonial toast he raised his cup and said cin cin to bystanding Japanese diplomats This caused an international pandemonium, as chin chin is a slang term for penis in Japanese This later led to his prosecution In 1976, during the military dictatorship of General Videla, di Benedetto was imprisoned and tortured Released a year later, he went into exile in Spain, then returned home in 1984 He travelled widely and won numerous awards, but never acquired the worldwide fame of other Latin American writers, perhaps because his work was not translated to many languages.

      ”The fact is, it seems, that the most you can hope is to be a little less, in the end, the creature you were in the beginning, and the middle.” Samuel Beckett from Molloy, quoted from the intro by Esther Allen.Don Diego de Zama is going mad. Paranoia is a cloak that he swings around his shoulders like a beast of burden. It weighs him down and leaves cracks in his mind for depression, dementia, and hopelessness to grow roots. He has been sent to this far flung outpost in Asunción. He assures [...]

      Something more is always expected.‘To the victim of expectations,’ begins Antonio Di Benedetto’s Zama in its epigraph. The Argentine masterpiece, first published in 1956 and, in 2016, made available in an exacting English translation by Esther Allen that retains the precise and often surrealistic prose, is a novel of surmounting frustration and failed expectations of a man caged by his social status and position. The theme of restlessly remaining static functions equally as an existential [...]

      Deserves a place at the table with Julian Gracq's masterpieces of waiting for something to arrive (The Opposing Shore [1951] and A Balcony in the Forest [1958]), as well as Dino Buzzati's The Tartar Steppe [1940], another really worthwhile novel of anticipatory anxiety, all of which seem like Cold War fever dreams ("The Tartar Steppe" was ahead of its time -- really should have been published a decade later). This one is dedicated to victims of expectation: "expectation" suggests hope but also p [...]

      Zama by Antonio Di Benedetto is one of those unknown books from South America that makes one wonder whether the United States took a wrong turn by being so Eurocentric. From the southern cone of that wild, but strangely civilized, continent, life has au unfamiliar look -- probably because the path traveled through history was so different.The main character is one Don Diego de Zama, a minor criollo official in Asuncion, Paraguay, far removed from his family down river in Buenos Aires. Zama is a [...]

      For lack of a better term, I think you could call this South American historical Noir. Di Benedetto's wring is great, wonderful, powerful. He does things with sentences that make my knees weak.So why three stars?Because like Celine, this book has a narrator who I think should get hit by a bus; however, buses weren't around when the book takes place. I'm glad I read. I will most likely track down other books, but I was wishing for a bus. (Strangely, though the ending was great).(2016 NYRB Book Cl [...]

      Esta novela trata sobre la vida de Diego de Zama, un asesor letrado de la Gobernación en Paraguay y uno de los personajes más miserables que leí en mi vida. Rencor, venganza, crueldad, engaño, cobardía, miseria, fiereza ,traición, abuso de poder, marginalidad, son algunos de sus temas. La historia en sí es interesante, aunque por momentos decae, siempre te mantiene interesado. Está narrada en primera persona y organizada en tres partes que ocurren en 1790 , 1794 y 1799. La primera y la t [...]

      Empecemos por lo fácil. La novela tiene una prosa extraordinaria, original, que me ha sorprendido primero y seducido completamente después. Tardé algo, no mucho, en acompasarme a su ritmo, en acostumbrarme a su estructura de frases y párrafos, en disipar mi confusión al atacar ese texto que, narrado en primera persona, parecía un diario donde los acontecimientos se iban superponiendo unos a otros sin ligazón aparente, escenas sueltas, algunas pequeños relatos en sí mismos, que poco a po [...]

      This is an English translation of a classic masterpiece of Argentinian and Spanish literature. It is the interior monologue of a servant of the Court of Spain that is placed in 1790 in a small and isolated outpost of Ascuncion the capital of Paraguay. Don Diego di Zama is an Americano as is his wife Marta, of mixed blood, but through his ambitions has risen in rank but will always be viewed slightly less than the 'white' Spanish families that have the ear of the Governor and through him of the K [...]

      Hace mucho no leía algo que me conmoviera tanto. Con Paraguay de fondo y Di Benedetto con su escritura seca, punzante, precisa: urgente. El libro se lee esperando barcos que no llegan, nombramientos, sueldos que no se pagan, mujeres hermosas que no se dejan amar; esperando que nos nazcan unas ganas de vivir o de embarcarnos y cruzar el territorio que nos separa de una revelación. Zama es la historia de un señor al que le gusta quedarse a la deriva, que espera que lo vayan a sacar de su ensimi [...]

      Diego de Zama is a midlevel bureaucrat stationed in Paraguay at the end of the 18th century. He wants to return to Buenos Aires and his family and the more congenial life of the larger community. His service in Ascuncion was supposed to be a short one, but during the course of the novel he waits 9 years. Like a Beckett character, he waits in increasing alienation and fear and expectation while becoming more and more adrift. The novel's 3 parts track his progress from simple loneliness and love a [...]

      Una historia de como se puede pasar una vida en la espera. Me encanta la dedicatoria de este libro: "para las víctimas de la espera". Zama pasa la vida esperando a que lo transfieran cerca de su familia. La familia es un fantasma para el, el hogar, representa lo que más desea. Pero también se quiere enamorar y hace varios intentos que no llegan a nada. Creo que no era el libro indicado para empezar a leer a benedetto, pero me encantó igual.

      Solid--I suspect it loses something in translation, through no fault of the excellent Esther Allen, but just because I imagine Benedetto using all kinds of archaic, 18th century Hispanisms (did I make that word up?) I'm surprised by my enjoyment, actually. The first third is about Don Diego's bursting penis and its fight with his equally bursting self-importance, and it took a bit too much effort to convince myself that we're meant to read all that ironically. The middle third has some unfortuna [...]

      Algunos libros llegan por algo en el momento justo, creo que para mi éste fue el caso de Zama. Lo tenía hace rato en lista de espera y de la nada, decidí dejar otro a medias para leerlo. Ya desde el primer párrafo me pareció algo maravilloso, un sutil decir sin decir que se va tejiendo poco a poco. Una densidad que te transmite con pequeños detalles, las emociones de injusticia, renuncia, miseria y doblegar del espíritu que va profundizándose con cada nuevo evento que Diego Zama debe sob [...]

      Al empezar la novela y leer que se sitúa en el año 1790 me esperé un bodrio, de esos que decís "uh, otro lugar común más" pero me voló el coco (muy en cursiva). Como bien dicen en todos lados, la historia trata sobre la espera, pero no cualquier espera, sino de una en la ausencia, casi amnésica, que atraviesa a Diego de Zama. Suspendido en el silencio de sus pensamientos, Zama existe para el futuro pero se encuentra devorado por el presente. Aunque se traslade el territorio va consigo. E [...]

      Una novela rara. Creo que no termino de entenderla. Magníficamente escrita, como en el siglo XIX. No esperaba que la narración estuviera ubicada en la década de 1790, pero me descubrió un mundo nuevo. Inquietante, me deja ganas de buscar cómo se leyó.

      Zama is a fascinating character. To the bitter end he is filled with expectations that can never be realized. He is a terrible bureaucrat caught in a Kafkaesque bureaucracy and a would-be Casanova filled with delusions about his power over women, who seem to dominate him instead. He tries to be duplicitous, but always with disastrous results. He seeks final vindication as a military hero, where he fails even more abjectly than in his other endeavors. He is Akaky Akakievich with a higher reach, b [...]

      Zama es la historia de un señor al que le gusta quedarse a la deriva, que espera que lo vengan a sacar de su ensimismamiento y su podredumbre (eso no pasa casi nunca o sí? A no ser que uno sea Telémaco) y adoptemos ese mimetismo que como él dice es la defensa de las bestias.Zama se volvería polvo o nube o cadáver de mono o tardecita en el patio hasta desaparecer mientras se revuelve en el horror del absurdo y de las ganas de no ocuparse de nada y echarse a morir y descansar para siempre el [...]

      ****1/2. Tantalizing opacity, prose and narrative polished and honed to a lucid, impenetrable surface (it's all there, dense and rich, no need to look "beneath"). Can't wait to see what Lucretia Martel does with this in her film adaptation.

      Si no he entendido mal la jugada, la novela de Di Benedetto vendría a ser una especie de parodia de la novela del Siglo de Oro español, e incluso de la novela caballeresca, dado que una parte está dedicada a los galanteos y la otra a las gestas militares. En la primera parte Diego de Zama es un ser inepto y vicioso y en la segunda sus aptitudes incorporan la torpeza. Pero su verdadero valor se sostiene en dos estrategias combinadas.Por un lado encontramos que la prosa sintetiza la naturaleza [...]

Con ripugnanza, cercai al buio il mio coltello grande. Me la tagliai. Una volta recisa, alla luce del giorno, era una donna bruna e io dicevo di amarla.

      Cuando no había acabado de leer la primera parte de la novela (ignorando que había dos partes más) se me metió insistintemente en la cabeza una frase para desarrollar una posible reseña: "Los hombres piensan con la polla". De acuerdo, no es un pensamiento original, pero sí una realidad. Diriges el Fondo Monetario Internacional pero (en algún momento, quizás no siempre) piensas con la polla; presides el país más poderoso de la Tierra pero (en algún momento, quizás no siempre) piensas [...]

      Ya desde las primeras páginas uno se encuentra con el espíritu de la novela que se mantiene hasta el final. Un genial modo de escribir, particular y cuidado; un aire de época logrado; y un protagonista con el cual es imposible identificarse pero de todos modos nunca se pierde el interés en sus andanzas. Con cierta resignación a vivir, parece seguir adelante alimentado por la búsqueda y la espera de algo que ni él está completamente seguro. La espera de su esposa, de un ascenso, de recono [...]
