Pedro Páramo review Ê 109 Ole generation of Latin American writers including Carlos Fuentes Mario Vargas Llosa and Gabriel García Máruez To read Pedro Páramo today is as overwhelming an experience as when it was first published in Mexico back in 195. I watched the trickles glinting in the lightning flashes and every breath I breathed I sighed And every thought I thought was of you SusanaLike a message in the bottle some stories float through decades and centuries on the endless ocean of an untold past and bear a timeless appeal by echoing few words of eternal desires Wish you were here Pedro Paramo is one such story Surrounded by an iridescence of magical realism the wonders of this gorgeous little book can t truly be captured in the few sentences of English language probably because Juan Rulfo penned his only novel in the language of a different world and obliged us a glimpse of that world through his words The moon had risen briefly and then slipped out of sight It was one of those sad moons that no one looks at or pays attention to It had hung there a while misshapen not shedding any light and then gone to hide behind the hillsIt recounts the tale of a fateful Mexican village where the line of past and present death and life hate and love is merged into creating a hazy phantasmagoria that doesn t demand to be understood but rather immersed in its flow of haunting yet mesmerizing narration A full circle of loss and search by exploring the dynamics of human memories on hearing the faint sounds of phantom voices is impeccably drawn by Juan Rulfo through his understated and lucid prose Highly recommended as a perfect reading companion for a short and memorable meeting
