doc ☆ Una comedia ligera Hardcover read Ö eduardo mendoza à [PDF / Epub] ☀ Una comedia ligera By Eduardo Mendoza – Gym-apparel.co.uk Al famoso y mediocre escritor Carlos Prullás autor de comedias ligeras para distracción saludable de la clase media todo se le empezó a torcer el día ue entró Galada despreocupada y burguesa se agrietó dejando entrever una trama amenazante de engaños y tropiezos ue acabó por convertirlo en el sospechoso principal de un asesina I’ve mentioned uite a few times on this blog that certain novels appear at the right time unfortunately in the case of ‘A Light Comedy’ this was the exact opposite The previous book ‘Fall on your Knees’ was slightly disappointing and this one was as well Plus I can’t stand these careless translations which seems to be popular in this decade I can see why this book is out of printCarlo Prullas is a playwright whose life is falling to pieces his latest play is not progressing due to his actors he has cheated on his wife with friends and neighbors and to top it all off one of his acuaintances is found stabbed which ultimately leads Prullas into a sleazy criminal underworldOne could say that this plot is just to keep the reader entertained what the book is really about is how post war Spain is changing with different types of people entering Spanish society A Light Comedy does satirize the upper classes of Barcelona the wannabes and nouveau riche By the end of the novel Prullas comes to grips with the ever changing Barcelona and takes it in his strideMy description of the book does not make it as bad as it seems and it definitely isn’t but the translation does leave a lot to be desired As a snapshot of a particular era it works though and shouldnt be disregarded for that

Eduardo Mendoza ò Una comedia ligera book

Una comedia ligeraAl famoso y mediocre escritor Carlos Prullás autor de comedias ligeras para distracción saludable de la clase media todo se le empezó a torcer el día ue entró en su vi I thoroughly enjoyed taking this literary journey with Carlos Prullas a womanizing playwright in late 1940's Barcelona as he finally grows upPrullas' foibles should be unforgivable his wife is after all the source of his wealth but they aren't His conuests include his neighbour's neurotic wife and a pretty but pretty talentless young actress It is this latter liaison which almost proves his undoing as he spirals downward into the seedy underbelly of otherwise uptight Catalan societyApart from the sheer pleasure of the story telling Mendoza gives a fascinating portrayal of the stultifying life under Fracoist Spain Still poor from the Civil War and an international pariah as a fascist state Spain survives on cheap imports of wheat from Argentina in the wake of the European tour of the glamorous Eva Peron Prullas' Barcelona is still scarred by buildings destroyed in the Civil War and beggars are encountered at every turn The book als deftly displays the determination of the regime to suash any Catalan exceptionalismThe only criticism I would make is that the pivotal murder is solved too suddenly in relation to the twists and turns which had preceded it Still a great book full of larger than life characters in which you can hear the steady drone of fans as they try half heartedy to dispel the summer heat
