"The Divorce tells about a recently divorced man on vacation in Buenos Aires. One afternoon he encounters a series of the most magical coincidences. While sitting at an outdoor caf, absorbed in conversation with a talented video artist, he sees a young man riding by on a bicycle get thoroughly drenched by a downpour of water--seemingly from rain caught the night before in the overhead awning. The video artist knows the cyclist, who knew a mad hermetic sculptor whose family used to take the Hindu God Krishna for walks in the neighborhood. As the coincidences continue to add up, the stories concerning each new connection weave reality with the absurd until they reach a final, brilliant, cataclysmic ending"--… (mere)

Well, that was weird and interesting.

This is my first Aira and I love an odd twist. The rollercoaster of the story itself--little snippets about individual characters who are barely connected--was great. And then the ending was totally unexpected weirdness and originality that I felt like he completely set up for the reader to expect. Yet it still came out of left field.

The kind of book that will never be the same on a re-read. ( )

This novella is an account built around a brief moment. It links together the people who are in that moment. Each has a history ahat has precee that moment and they also have links that stand outside that moment. Their stories each flow wellon their ownand flow into each other at the end---the moment that is a brief as a splash of water. Mesmerizing and evocative and seemingly without plot (but is it?). I will want to revisit this. ( )
