Ways of Going Home Novel by Alejandro Zambra
“Ways of going home” refers literally to an anecdote with which the book begins, when a little boy gets lost but finds an alternative way home from that taken by his parents. More symbolically, the title touches on different ways of remembering, understanding and coming to terms with disorienting history.
Alejandro Andrés Zambra Infantas (Santiago, Chile, b. September 24, 1975) is a Chilean poet, short story writer and novelist. He has been recognized for his talent as a young Latin American writer, chosen in 2007 as one of the “Bogotá39” (the best Latin American writers under the age of 39) and in 2010 by Granta as one of the best Spanish writers under the age of 35. Zambra describes the beginning of his writing career as, “I wouldn’t choose to be a writer. Actually I don’t think I ever chose it, I was just undeniably worse at other things.” Zambra began with writing poetry, citing influences such as Nicanor Parra, Jorge Teillier, Gonzalo Millán, and Enrique Lihn, and his brief novels are noted for their poetic natures. He is often noted for his successful use of metafiction, or writing about writing, in his novels. Short stories and articles by Zambra have been featured in magazines such as The New Yorker, The Paris Review, McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, Babelia, and Quimera. Zambra also has worked as a literary critic for the newspaper La Tercera and as a professor at the School of Literature at Diego Portales University in Santiago.
