    Set during the last years of Czechoslovakia before the end of communism this short novel is based around a meeting between the author, who descends down into his own novel view spoiler rather as in his travel writing there is an interplay between the potentially real and the probably fictional so to there is an uncertain shifting between the two as though the author was seeking to both expose and cover his nakedness at the same time and blurs the difference between fiction and non fiction, ins Set during the last years of Czechoslovakia before the end of communism this short novel is based around a meeting between the author, who descends down into his own novel view spoiler rather as in his travel writing there is an interplay between the potentially real and the probably fictional so to there is an uncertain shifting between the two as though the author was seeking to both expose and cover his nakedness at the same time and blurs the difference between fiction and non fiction, instead in the end there is neither, just Chatwin himself, or maybe there isn t hide spoiler and the character of Utz, a collector of porcelain and their discussion around his collection and the nature and history of European porcelain view ...

    Chatwin s sentences are as chiseled little jewels in museum cases He s part of that wonderful tradition of chilly literary craftsmanship that counts Borges, Sebald, and Nabokov among its members.Utz is the first of Chatwin s fiction works I ve read, and it bears much in common with his travel writing To be, like, ultra lame, I would make the comparison between his prose and the Meissen porcelain he writes about, but I m not Instead, I ll say that it is brilliantly, deceptively simple He just Chatwin s sentences are as chiseled little jewels in museum cases He s part of that wonderful tradition of chilly literary craftsmanship that counts Borges, Sebald, and Nabokov among its members.Utz is the first of Chatwin s fiction works I ve read, and it bears much in commo...

    La collezione proibita.Strano romanzo questo Utz, breve quanto intenso, multiforme e cangiante.Non avevo mai letto niente di Chatwin, ma per sentito dire o per articoli letti qua e l mi immaginavo viaggi avventurosi in terre lontane oltreoceano.Mi sono ritrovata invece a Praga, la pi misteriosa tra le citt europee , a viaggiare nella mente indecifrabile di Utz, un ricco collezionista di porcellane settecentes...

    I don t know why or when I began to be suspicious of fiction, but somewhere along the line I came to look on the reading of novels as a guilty pleasure, a distraction from the business ofserious reading This is an absurd notion, of course, and it embarrasses me to write it down The undergraduate English major still lurking somewhere deep within me is really quite shocked But I make no excuse for myself I only admit the fact.I ve read a lot of Bruce Chatwin and enjoyed all of it, but I I don t know why or when I began to be suspicious of fiction, but somewhere along the line I came to look on the reading of novels as a guilty pleasure, a distraction from the business ofserious reading This is an absurd notion, of course, and it embarrasses me to write it down The undergraduate English major still lurking somewh...

    Una perla questo ultimo scritto di Chatwin, che ci d un idea di quanto fosse colto e curioso C anche l opportunit di imparare qualcosa sulla storia delle porcellane di Meissen, da farne buon uso nelle conversazioni al bar per stupire gli amici.

    Se Fredrik Sj berg dice che esistono altri libri in cui compaiono collezionisti di mosche, io devo recuperare subito quei libri.Utz per un collezionista di ceramiche e forse ancora meglio, la sua ossessione sinistra, inquietante e malata lo porta a spostarsi, a mercanteggiare, a giungere a compromessi, a mentire ed imbrogliare, a nascondersi e a scappare Utz un personaggio estremamente affascinante e, seppur esplorato attentamente nei meandri della sua mente, non del tutto comprensibile Se Fre...
