One assumes from the title that the king spoken of is revered and placed in a position of honor Very shortly we learn that the king is actually hanging by his neck above the central suare the people looking up at him swinging there Many things are different from the perspective of those on the flip side of northAlarc n is Peruvian American and his voice is strong having seen poverty male having known brutality and distinctive not being North American His biography is fascinating He is an investigative journalist he teaches both broadcast journalism and writes novels He collaborated with partners to establish a Spanish language podcast Radio Ambulante telling Latin American stories for NPR This collection of stories may be a perfect way to be introduced to his work Some stories have a knife hidden somewhere in the folds We are reading along interested and engaged and suddenly we remember the world is not kind We might have moments of carefree pleasure but it is not too long before the reality comes flooding back Until then however there is a sense of release most intense The Provincials is the longest story and it is something altogether new A father and his son return to the town the father had fled some years before He is now working at a job unimaginable to those people in the town Head Librarian of the Rare and Antiuarian Manuscripts division of the National Library and has one son in America The son traveling with him is an actor Because the townspeople mistake him for his cross border brother he accedes to this role He discovers there is in fact something of value here in this tired town they ve left Rep blica and Grau may be my favorite story a story of a wily blind man begging for coins He is accompanied by a ten year old who is being pimped by his father to bring home half the take Life is hard The begging blind man seems happy to share his income such as it is with the neatly dressed boy One day after his father beats the boy for such a small take home the boy s bruised bloody face and uncaring demeanor earns the two beggars The second longest story in the bunch The Bridge is as filling as a novel There is so much to think about so much alluded to so much desire and despair in it that one has to pause and pull in the oars Let s just think about what he is saying if you don t mind It won t hurt you to know the story ends with a recording of an audience roaring back at an opera performer who left them momentarily speechlessIn the best of all possible worlds I would read this collection slowly allowing time between stories as though each were a suare of bitter chocolate But I am a traveler too and fear I will lose the opportunity to share in this strongly South American flavored story telling so must finish it uickly All the way through we sense the movement of individuals tied in some mysterious psychic way to the mother country but mostly adrift seeking rest The North when it is perceived at all is other The final story The Auroras couldn t have come at a opportune moment considering the state of discussion around the world on the subject of sexual relations and exploitation The story pained me While we experience a curious role reversal in the sexual arena we also have a ueer example of the effect of social groups on attitudessomething like the Facebook effect The main character was influenced to find his inner malice and express it only later understanding how thoroughly he d been manipulated It was a distressing story to end onAlarc n is interesting enough that I set out immediately to see if this set of stories is representative of his work He has two earlier novels his debut called Lost City Radio 2007 about a radio show that recounts for families the status of victims of a war in a nameless South American country and At Night We Walk in Circles 2013 featuring people with names and backgrounds the same as those in his story mentioned above called The Provincials But there is Alarc n collaborated on a graphic novel and several story collections He is a journalist and just kind of endlessly fascinating He appears to write in English no translator is listed He also teaches or has taught at several universities in the United States You must sample his work if only because South American writers are too scarce for whatever reason in North America and I presume in Europe South America is simply too often overlooked in our hurry to discover larger targets or exotica
