review Mãos de cavalo Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Battered stunt bike the silent adolescent fascinated by bodies and violence the obsessive young surgeon the distant husbandAs dawn breaks and people slowly fill the streets the man finds himself driving back to hi. This is the second book by Daniel Galera to be translated into English but it precedes Blood Soaked Beard which was one of my favorite books three years ago The writing in this is not assured as in that book but that may be because of being written earlier also it is not as well fleshed out What both books share is a haunted protagonist Dr Hermano Weissmann s daredevil past while growing up in Esplanada Brazil included cycling down streets and hills with ill advised speed and abandon This seemingly recklessnes has followed him to adulthood where he seeks inaccessible peaks and challenges regardless of conseuences But during the course of this slim novel he comes to face the demons of his youth The present is the framework the bones upon which hangs the events of the past and those scenes set in boyhood and youth were by far the most vivid It is possible to see the boy in the man he has become but the boy was far interesting

review Mãos de cavalo Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB S childhood home What is pulling him back there Perhaps the need to make something happen perhaps just nostalgia Or perhaps the search for absolution for a secret crime he has carried in his heart for fifteen year. From talented Brazilian writer Daniel Galera and newly translated into English comes The Shape of Bones It s the story of one man s struggle to come to terms with his own personal demon To the outside world Hermano Weissmann has it made He is a very successful plastic surgeon married with one child whom he adores Below the surface though he is a tormented man With richly drawn characters and elegant prose the story alternates between his fifteen year old self and his thirty year old self with the majority of the story taking place in his past At first I thought the protagonist was a masochist he had such little regard for his own safety but the truth comes out in the end it s a brutal intense observation of a tortured man s psyche This slim volume is an excellent read

Surely Brazilian novelist Daniel Galera is among the finest contemporary novelists today I was mesmerized by his first novel Blood Drenched Beard and couldn t wait to read The Shape of Bones I was not disappointed The story centers on a young married man who is preparing to climb the virgin mountain Cerro Benete one of the final mountains to be conuered with his boastful best friend We know the narrator only as Hermano translated to brother and as he drives to meet that friend we catch glimpses of his childhood in Esplanada where he was part of a gang of boys Every other chapter is structured as a flashbackThrough these flashbacks we learn that Hermono has considered his life to be an endless rehearsal for a heroic moment that never arrived A permanent limbo between innocence and heroism inhabited by ghostly projections of himself distorted by what he wished he had been or wanted to become Increasingly he punishes his body embracing and strident risks learning to inure himself from the physical pain But is that punishment a metaphor for inuring his mind and his essence as wellAs the risks and the punishment escalate Hermano struggles with one particularly haunting moment when his striving for heroism and masculinity deserted him Can he achieve redemption This beautifully written book expertly translated from the Portuguese by Alison Entrekin examines that moment when we strive to finally achieve a sense of grace
