Very strange novella and I don t know why it won the awards and plaudits that it did Am I the boy declaring the emperor has no clothes or have I missed the point Either way I wouldn t recommend spending your own money on it This should probably be either 1 or 4 but as I don t know which I m compromising on 2THEMESIt is about truth and lies dreams and reality memory predestination fitting in and the difference between having a dream and making one but it s superficial than that makes it soundPLOTIt s set in Angola though there s little sense of Africa in it and is about Felix an albino bibliophile with mild OCD whose business is to Guarantee your children a better past I invent dreams for people I am not a forger Some chapters they are typically only a page or two tell of Jos Buchmann acuiring a new past and others are dreams Felix says his job is an advanced kind of literature I create plots I invent characters but rather than keeping them trapped in a book I give them life launching them into realityFelix isn t the only one changing the past and creating new futures his teacher was moved by the helplessness of certain words He saw them as down on their luck abandoned in some desolate place in the language and he sought to recover them while his client Buchmann comes to believe in his new past than Felix thought possible and is told You invented him and now he s begun to invent himselfIMAGERYThere are some nice images It was as though it were raining night as though falling from the sky were the thick fragments of that sleepy black ocean through which the stars navigate their course and uirky ideas a castle which had crenelations added to make it look authentic and soon the locals swore it had always had them If it were authentic no one would believe in it but the plot meanders until suddenly the penultimate chapter ties up everything in a mad rush Very unsatisfyingGECKO or CHAMELEONFor no very obvious reason much of this story is told by a gecko rather than an eponymous chameleon Granted there are parallels with people living chameleon like lives but if that s the point why not have a chameleon narrator maybe it s because Geckos are uniue among lizards in their vocalizations according to Wikipedia More likely it s a translation problem albeit a rather prominent one original Portuguese title is O Vendedor de Passados which means something like Seller of the Past Lies are OK because they are common in nature What is camouflage for instance but a lie Back to chameleons rather than geckosCONCLUSIONI think it s somewhat pretentious lacking the profundity it seems to crave the pacing is annoyingly inconsistent slow and apparently aimless most of the time until a frantic end and I never understood the point of the gecko

We re in Angola after that country won independence from Portugal But even though the fighting is over there is still political upset and people trying to settle old scores There are so many folks who want to run away from their pasts that our main character an African albino has a business inventing new past lives for people He ll give you old family photos and biographical sketches of your mother father siblings and tell you what your childhood was like Most of the plot in this short book consists of interactions with the main character s clients and the women he brings home with some surprises in both departments We learn a little bit of the horrors of the war Splendor of Portugal by Antonio Lobo Antunes which I reviewed gives us about war in Angola And did I say the narrator is a gecko A bit strange but a good read that has won several literary prizes

Brief and rather uirky novel set in Angola The narrator is a gecko living in the house of Felix Ventura The gecko is articulate and charming he appears to have been a man in a previous life and he dreams Felix likes the lizard and talks to him Felix is an albino who creates memories and a past for people Come to Felix and he will provide documentation and photographs of grandparents and illustrious ancestors One client in particular really believes in the past he has been given and becomes the person that has been created for him The novel employs magic realism and is at times rather disjointed there is a basic storyline with someone s real past catching up with him There is a love interest and a fair amount of photographyOn the whole I enjoyed the novel it is a little slight but the dream seuences are good and there is one great line spoken to Felix when young and about to lose his virginityChastity is a pointless agony kid And one I m happy to fix
