    1. Book eaten by style, and not an impressive style. I mean, sure, I like the conversational approach as much as anyone, but this, to me, is an example of how far it can lead a writer astray. Novella stretched from short story, not shrunk from novel.


    2. Adentrarse en las tinieblas del pasado argentino muchas veces requiere de cierta violencia. No son territorios en los cuales uno va suelto de cuerpo, como si se tratara de una excursión campestre hacia una juventud maravillosa de heroicos actos y tremendas aventuras. La cuestión nacional enmarcada en los 70s es árida, ríspida, caótica, pesada, difícil, inteligente y aunque no parezca, esquiva. Reconstruir realmente una memoria en torno a la década del 70 y el inicio de la dictadura milita [...]


    3. Podés leer esta y otras reseñas también en mi blog: ceresplaneta/2Un empleado administrativo recibe la información de que dos hombres van a ser secuestrados por las Fuerzas Armadas de la última dictadura cívico-militar. La novela gira en torno a la disyuntiva que enfrenta Sanctis a la hora de decidir qué hacer: si intentar salvarlos o no. No es que haya leído muchos libros que enmarquen esta época, pero sí puedo decir que La larga noche de Francisco Sanctis es el más original que me t [...]


    4. Set in Argentina, the theme is "the disappeared," (desaparecidos), those who vanished during the horrible police violence of the decade starting in the mid-1970's. Here we have Francisco, a 40-ish and very average family man with some kids and a loving wife. Out of the blue, he is contacted by a woman, a former acquaintance of college days when he, and everybody else, was a kind of student radical. Now he hardly follows politics. But suddenly he has to decide if he will warn some people he doesn [...]



    5. It's hard for me to talk about this novel without being one of those unbearable people who talk about Sartrean anguish and mauvaise foi, but let's forget that and mention instead the book's wry, Cervantean presentation, complete with chapter synopses and narratorial intrusions. For example, chapter three as it appears in the table of contents: "In which, as a certain parcel of canned goods changes hands a dozen times and in view of the fact that punctuality seems not to be Elena Vaccaro's chief [...]


    6. "Öyleyse gerçekten kaderin kendine özgü yasaları vardı, her şey olacağına vardığında da bu yasaların nasıl mükemmel işlediği görülebiliyordu. Demek ki boşuna sorgulamaya gerek yoktu." Erdemli olan ile vurdumduymaz sanctis arasında gecen bir iç hesaplaşma sorgulamayi da beraberinde getiriyor. Doğru olan hangisi; erdemli olup cezalandırılması mi, vurdumduymaz olup hayata devam etmesi mi? Aslında ikisi de kendi içinde çozulen olgular, cunku Francisco tüm dünyevi yük [...]


    7. This fascinating book explores the psychology of compassion, fear, and rationality. Faced with a moral dilemma, Francisco Sanctis must decide how to approach an unexpected scenario. The story is told through a clever, detached, yet simultaneously knowledgeable narrator. I really enjoyed this intellectually engaging read.
