    No podemos dejar de recomendar encarecidamente esta obra, inteligente como pocas, capaz de hacer re r, escandalizar e indignar, pero cuyo fin absoluto parece ser que el lector se ponga a pensar Y vaya si lo consigue Rese a completa

    There s a town It s filled with people students, chemists, bakers, etc One day a streetcar stops and unloads a group of refugees From where It doesn t matter Who Maybe Tulli sweeps from generality to specificity making a funnel like spiral from which, you reader...

    A very post modern novel with its Pirandello esque characters in search of a story type ideas handled with great sophistication and wit I just love this kind of thing Another example of the current richness of Eastern Europe...

    Aims to be self consciously innovative and artsy, ends up being awkward and boring as hell.

    Probably one of the most jarring and unique narrative voices I ve read in a novel While shot through with inspiration from Kafka and meta fictional absurdists like Calvino and Pirandello, what it reminds me of most, oddly enough, is Lars Von Trier s Dogville, in both the diorama like sets and the gratuitous, borderline comic cruelty on display There s an interesting kind of authorial solipsism to it whereas most novels implicitly treat everything outside the narrator s direct gaze as inconsequential, Flaw is explicit and literal in its attitude towards this void The effect, for better or worse, is one of a child playing with a dollhouse all locations, by their sparse artificiality, afford a unobstructed view onto the cast of static characters, with the author swooping in and playing pretend identification with each one in turn If I were ___, I d think Of course, I don t know any children with a sense of humor as pitch black and seemingly aloof as Magdalena Tulli s,...

    Diverse correspondences come to mind Kafka, Di Chirico, Jim Carrey in The Truman Show, the African American book of folk tales The People Could Fly FLAW is a tale about tales, an allegory, a stage set yet imbued with enough historical and psychological resonance that its painted props and faceless characters who engage in no dialog provoke both intellectual and emotional involvement in the story The setting also, the set is an urban square with one streetcar line there is no elsewhere The story is not taking place here or there It fits entirely into itself as into a glass globe The most important thing here is to have the right costume for in FLAW, in the most fundamental way, clothes make the man.A large group of refugees from another story, destitute outsiders, appear out of nowhere they don t exist until they board the streetcar at one stop and get off at the other stop in front of the government offices The same can be said of a group of military officers, airmen, who don t know why or how they have come to be here and who await a helicopter, which finally arrives at the end of the story to take them away So, there is an outside and an inside to this story, although...

    Flaw is a beautifully written, intelligent and thought provoking book I enjoyed it immensely Less than 200 pages in length, but, I could read only a few pages at a time because the prose is dense not sure if this is due to it being a Polish translation and weighty with ideas Speaking of ideaswhat exactly is Flaw about Is it a story about Poland during the second world war and the construction of concentration camps close to Polish villages What do we have Refugees arriving by street car with suitcases, arm bands, the separation of refugees from their belongings and the herding of them into the basement of a cinema where the vents are sealed and death is the intended result Sounds familiar, no Or is it a modern day story about the transport of refugees in contemporary Europe since the opening of borders A warning perhaps Or is it the eternal story of a...

    Magdalena composes writing like poetic news broadcasts, where narrating cameras capture persistently from intricate and revealing perspectives At times she even casts herself inside the characters, interrogating their individual intents with precision, which exposes questions than reliefs FLAW takes place in action, in a town square that is in constant revolve of its meaning In a setting of tailors and pharmacists, maids, newsboys and bakers, a street car arrives one day carrying an abundance of dislocated refuges Without a home and without any form of inclusion, the refugees expect something, some orientation, but can never find its reach, for the town itself is already lost of order.Twisting like snakes though each characters stories, one finds hope and despair, pleasure and confusion The reader lives inside this confusion like an abandoned child frantic in a crowd of uproar It is this di...

    The first ten pages of this novel are the best ten pages I ve read since I finished Erasmus Praise of Folly Tulli creates an amazing double allegory kind of thing, in which the sewing of clothes by a tailor ends up standing for, in increasing order of interest, a making clothes b writing fiction c living in the world The needle hurtles unrestrainedly towards its only goal the final calculation of materials and labor And then for no apparent reason it turns into Jose Saramago, without the humor, beauty or weirdness Now if you like your fiction without any of those things, and without named characters, and without much in the way of syntactical variation pos...

    Flawby Magdalena TulliI won this book for a Goodreads First reads giveawayThis is a Polish story that has been translated to English I found this story to be timeless in it s meaning A train full of refugees show up unexpected to a town They are kept in the square The story seems to be about ones view of someone when they are a foreigner How these foreigners are taken advantage of by one of the towns people He puts on a uniform that is left behind and begins to give commands that simply satisfies his own revenge.I think this story is a warning to both people traveling to different cult...
