One Reply to “Papi: A Novel”

  1. Tiene momentos realmente brillantes, but it drags on for way longer than feels right Los primeros y los ltimos cap tulos, alguno aislado en el centro Chapter 18 is amazing in the context of the book resaltan el genio del estilo narrativo But it does drag on Would completely recommend, con esa advertencia.

  2. This is a classic example of an unreliable narrator but the narrative voice was not that of an 8 year old girl The diction, syntax and figurative language do not ring true and were far from age appropriate This glaring fault detracted from an otherwise incredibly imaginative journey There were brief moments when the author seemed to recognize this discrepancy and tried to explain the young narrator s confusion about the meaning of certain words but then quickly returned to the unreal Uber intell [...]

  3. Lo he terminado y mi valoraci n se decanta m s por los elementos positivos que por los negativos Me ha gustado la forma de narrar la historia, desmesurada, on rica, a veces parece un mal viaje, tremendista, agitada, gil, con un vocabulario que salta por todas las fuentes del idioma natal de la escritora espa ol, dominicano, ingl s s , tambi n los anglicismos son parte de la cultura del Caribe , que a veces es simple trasliteraci n del lenguaje hablado lo que le da una dimensi n diferente a la na [...]

  4. I couldn t finish this a very rare occurrence I had no idea what was going on amidst all of the fantastical imagery, amidst all the words There didn t seem to actually be a story under all that or if there was, I couldn t follow it.

  5. Non un libro semplice da affrontare ma di grande sapore agrodolce Si sente quella dolcezza che contraddistingue i bambini a prescindere da chi siano i genitori.Papi un narcotrafficante e la figlia lo attende sempre con paura mista a una devozione tipica dell infanzia Nella sua cruda descrizione e narrazione, un misto tra un tema di scuola una chiacchierata tra amiche, si percepisce la paura e l ingenuit , la speranza ma anche la rassegnazione.Linguaggio sboccato frutto della mancanza di una figu [...]

  6. The world has seen many narratives of absent fathers, but this narrator s dedication to her father is as charming and lyrical as it is tragic and human By blending persona and myth, this hyperreal work of fiction potently expresses the pain of an abandoned child Marylise FigueroaThis book was reviewed in the November December 2016 issue of World Literature Today magazine Read the full review by visiting our website worldliteraturetoday 2Check out our full list of Summer Reads at worldliteraturet [...]

  7. Papi es un libro complejo La historia es muy interesante, los personajes son interesantes, y la narraci n que se utiliza es muy, muy peculiar es como si pudieras leer los pensamientos de quien narra, a veces inocentes, a veces fantasiosos, a veces ca ticos e irracionales Pero dentro de un todo, tiene sentido En varias ocasiones la l nea entre lo que es fantas a, lo que es met fora, lo que es sue o y lo que es real es tan borrosa y curva, que da m s confusi n y preguntas que respuestas Pero a fin [...]

  8. Se habla mucho de la influencia de Ginsberg y Burroughs en mis textos, pero nunca de algo mucho m s evidente como Severo Sarduy, Lezama, Arenas o Virgilio Pi era, todos homosexuales por cierto , responde esta guerrera literaria en una entrevista.A m al inicio se me figur como los hijos del Cort zar de los cronopios y de un Aira enfebrecido la loquera de Lemebel y el ritmo v rtigo de un Luis Rafael S nchez que te pone a bailar con su importancia de llamarse Daniel Santos.Y, por encima de todo ell [...]

  9. il mio secondo libri di NN Editore, dopo Kent Haruf, e comincio ad apprezzare sia la veste grafica sia la qualit dei testi scelti da questa casa editrice.Come posso parlare di Papi Beh, non facile e il motivo si pu gi ricercare nella nota critica presente nell aletta del libro non dice niente, non racconta niente, sembra un libro senza senso e senza trama.Quindi cos Papi Papi non pu essere raccontato, posso scrivere dieci pagine senza necessariamente dirvi niente della trama Ma c una trama un li [...]

  10. Lo primero que conoc de Rita Indiana fue la m sica Altiro me dieron ganas de pillar sus libros y al llegar a un link con el epub de Papi pude confirmar mi corazonada Humor y un mundo que no se acaba Algo as como realismo m gico caribe o, mezclando una postverdad infinita con las fantasias de la hija de un narcotraficante Ya eramos hasta famosos, y sal amos a cada rato en la prensa y se nos acusaba de revivir el culto a papi, de superstici n, de prostituci n, de violaci n, de desfloraci n de v rg [...]

  11. Drawing on her own memories of a childhood split between Santo Domingo and visits with her father amid the luxuries of the United States, Papi is the story of an eight year old girl and the relationship with her father Papi is a short yet fast paced read The way it s written, with many long, run on sentences, followed by lots of short sentences with repetition makes you read it faster and faster It s interesting that this manic style of story telling is mostly present when the girls father is ar [...]

  13. I really wanted to like this, I love her music Maybe something was lost in the translatione word cuz was in every sentence I really enjoyed the first and last chapter, but the rest was just rambling for me.

  14. Excelente narrativa Una manera incre ble de contar una historia bastante com n en nuestro pa s desde los ojos una peque a que posiblemente tuvo a su papi por muy poco tiempo y quien tuvo que crecer y adaptarse en medio de un ambiente hostil por mucho Y aunque no ten a idea de a qu tipo de lectura me enfrentaba cuando empec , este libro me impresion positivamente.

  15. Maravillosa narraci n Me encanta la musicalidad de la escritura de Rita Indiana y el uso de la jerga caribe a que lo transporta a una, la flexibilidad del idioma hecha prosa Papi es una canci n ritmica que canta sobre el patriarcado caribe o, el padre narco, el padre dinero, el padre estado todo desde los ojos de una ni a

  16. Lo disfrut un mont n, me gusta ese largo aliento de La protagonista, pareciera que no toma aire ni un segundo con tal de narrar, decirlo, contarlo todo Es el ritmo y el lenguaje lo que hacen de esta historia que tanto hemos o do como nica Lo que s es que a cada rato me deten a a preguntarme c mo sostienes una novela entera bajo este mismo sonido Respuesta lo haces y ya.

  17. Interesting writing style Overall decent and interesting book but it drags on despite being relatively short in length.

  18. Amo la narrativa Dominicana pero Rita Indiana logr ponerme a apreciar sus intimidades de ni a combinadas con el m s c mico despliegue de ficciones bien contadas Totalmente recomendable
