    CHARACTERS Heading South Looking North A Bilingual Journey 107 Heading South Looking North A Bilingual JourneyI found myself putting this book on a new shelf in my mind I should make a virtual one too of highly respected authors that fall short with a particular book In that list I would include this book Rushdie's The Jaguar Smile and Teju Cole's Every Day is for the Thief All three books were tarnished with the brush of what I call class unconsciousness by men who have settled into the armchair o

    CHARACTERS Heading South Looking North A Bilingual Journey 107 Heading South Looking North A Bilingual JourneyI knew nothing at all about the author before I read this book so I started from zero Reading his autobiography was informative First he batted back and forth between North America and South America and Spanish and English rejecting and accepting the upsides and downsides of both multiple times as he tried to decide on an identity He was and at the time of this book's writing still was dislocated and disconnected I'd put this down to his rebellious nature actually and also to his ascribing meaning to events via his intellectual imaginationSomething I would have like to see of was a discussion about how Spanish and

    CHARACTERS Heading South Looking North A Bilingual Journey 107 Heading South Looking North A Bilingual JourneyInspiring and sobering in eual measure this memoir of a revolutionary is written with flair and panache without ever losing its deeply introspective essence The book covers his birth in Argentina childhood in the USA and then young adulthood supporting the Allende revolution in Chile right through to its tragic end He also includes deep reflection developed over many years of wondering beyond blaming the usual culprits what went wrong with the Chilean revolution Most exciting for me is the way he both holds onto a transformative vision of social justice and opens up to hard truths about inclusiveness that must encompass those he disagrees with Thus he has “come to believe that to tolerate differences and indeed embody them personally and colle


  • Mike Lemon

    CHARACTERS Heading South Looking North A Bilingual Journey 107 Heading South Looking North A Bilingual JourneyAn interesting look into how language becomes part of identity Dorfman works through both Spanish and English and the changes are reflected in the way the novel reads At times the prose is very straight foward dare I say American Other times the sentences flow metaphorically weaving in ideas similar to the way Maruez writes The structure of the novels allows me to see the struggle Dorfman has in bringing to terms not only two languages but the cultures tied to themAn excellent read for anyone interested in language
