After some digging around online I settled on Living’s the Strange Thing (Lo raro es vivir) by Carmen Martín Gaite .

After some digging around online I settled on Living’s the Strange Thing (Lo raro es vivir) by Carmen Martín Gaite, translated by Anne McLean. Only it got lost in the post, hence my lateness. The nature of the book makes it a very hard thing to write about, and all I feel able to do here is to choose a few individual moments to illustrate Martín Gaite’s oblique approach to storytelling. The idea that Águeda (or any of us) lives in multiple worlds – in the present, in the past, in dreams and fantasies, in the world of films, and perhaps elsewhere too – is a beautiful one to me.

Agueda, a 35-year-old woman who has lived and loved hard, has just lost her mother. Finding her precarious equilibrium besieged, she struggles to keep her curiosity about the world intact. In an effort to give her life structure, she returns to her old, unfinished doctoral dissertation: a study of an extravagant and enigmatic 18th-century adventurer. Inexorably, her investigation leads to profound reflections on her own strange childhood, her parents’ equally strange marriage, and her own emotional landscape. Introspective, but with the pace and intrigue of a thriller, Living’s the Strange Thing will keep the reader engrossed until the end. Carmen Martín Gaite is one of Spain’s most distinguished novelists; in 1978, she was awarded the Spanish National Prize for Literature.
