One thought on “Anti-Memoirs

  1. Liz

    Reread on buses, trains, in planes, the veranda s of art museums, alone, alone, alone and then alone, over again in the blue of shadows, corners of libraries, under the gaze of weird convoluted coffee shop plants I want to be you, Andrei Malraux.

    Andre Malraux had an amazing life, but some parts of this memoir are god awful boringI think this is in part due to a bad translation, but what the hell do I knowMalraux knew everyone Mao, Nehru, De Gaulle and did everything, including surviving a tank trap in WWII, flying a small plane through a cyclone and being captured by Nazis At the end of the book, he tells the story of searching for weapons that members of the French resistance had hidden in a cave He has to crawl through certain tight s [...]

    A bit dry and given to too much introspection It s a shame the man s had such an interesting life, from what I can gather, and he doesn t seem to be able to tell too much about it apart from some rambling details.

    Fascinating account of Malraux s work with the French diplomatic corps Wonderfully and evocatively written an interesting look at historical figures and times A great example of how the French use their intellectuals in government advisory.

    French minister and personality Can t remember much about it truth be told but I have since kearned that he was an inveterate liar.

    As I know, the novel was translated by Ablohassan Najafi and Reza Seyed Hosseini they got the award for their translation It s a real intellectual novel.

    Anti Memoirs has been sitting on my bookshelf for a long time waiting to be read With its 400 pages of dense print it is challenge to any reader wondering whether Andre Malreaux still has something to say to anyone 40 years after its publication Actually, what is most appealing to this reader is precisely the nuggets of journalistic reportage and interviews, such as the stories from his participation in Word War 2 and the events leading to the introduction of the 5th French republic in 1958 Malr [...]

    Pompous and boring will give it another try if I find it again or just read about it.The views seem, at least in the parts I read, typical of the colonial mind when it sympathises.The concept of Asia as an ancient and dying civilisation took it s toll on us in Asia and I hold such thinkers responsible.

  9. Thorlakur

    Mr Malraux was a writer of great culture and humanity, but also of excellent style as can be seen from this text However he seems so detached from his own memoirs, that at times one feels as if he is not even present.

    Not an easy read becasue I thought the French to English translation was choppy and sometimes difficult to follow Nevertheless I enjoyed it A very different perspective on the 20th century.
