by Erri De Luca & translated by Michael F. The book’s unnamed hero is the archetypal man in flight from his past after his true love, Dvora, is assassinated during a war in Argentina. First he is a lone guerilla, fighting the regime that murdered Dvora, then a fugitive living off the meager land in Patagonia. As the novel begins, he embarks on an affair with Laila, an enigmatic young prostitute. The two have an instant, mystical connection: She reads his thoughts, and they converse in riddles and images.

When Erri De Luca published his first novel, Non ora, non qui (Not here, not now) in 1989, he became a young writer at the age of 39. The story he told evoked not only his own youth but also the collective, mythic youth of modern Italy, born on the ruins of the Second World War. A boy comes of age in 1950s Naples, going to school and playing along the docks with the hardscrabble children of the poor.

Selected Works by Erri De Luca. Castigo para los que no practícan su purezza con ferocidad. I go back to my book about the sea: a storm is brewing, force eight; the young man is eating heartily while his mates lose their lunches. Then he goes out on the bridge to stand tall because he’s young, alone, and exhilarated by the storm. I look up to sprinkle some raw garlic in my soup.

Much of this novel takes place in a small office-apartment known as the portineria, which I have translated here as the doorman’s loge. Generally located in the entryway of an apartment complex, the loge may have one or two rooms: a front room with a door, a picture window, a table and a small stove, and perhaps a small room in the back. The sleeping quarters are located in another part of the complex.

Narrator Andrew Ingalls, By (author) Erri De Luca, Translated by Michael Moore. A man's life lasts as long as three horses. You have already buried the first

Narrator Andrew Ingalls, By (author) Erri De Luca, Translated by Michael Moore. You have already buried the first. Somewhere along the coastline of Italy, a man passes his days in solitude and silence, tending a garden and reading books of travel and adventure.

From Argentina to Italy, the intense, metaphysical and poetic story of a gardener in love, by Italy's most prominent writer. "A man's life lasts as long as three horses. You have already buried the first." Somewhere along the coastline of Italy, a man passes his days in solitude and silence, tending a garden and reading books of travel and adventure. Through these simple routines he seeks to quiet the painful memories of the past: a life on the run from Argentina's Dirty War; a young bride 'disappeared' by the military; a terrifying escape through the wilds of Patagonia. Yet everywhere he turns, new life is pulsing, ready to awaken his senses, like the force that drives his fruit trees into bloom. People and events from the past and present migrate into patterns assigned by a metaphysical geometry. A woman of the world re-introduces him to love. An African day laborer teaches him the meaning of gratitude. In this intense narrative, every acute observation, every nuance, becomes a means of salvation. Using a language that is both gripping and contemplative, Three Horses is an unforgettable tale. Praise for The Sea of Memory: "Poetic . . . charged with anger and desire." -The New York Times Book Review "Alluring . . . shimmeringly lyrical." -Publishers Weekly
  • In prose that transcends country and time, the protagonist is connected to the earth, his world narrowly defined through the soil, the daily tending of trees a nostrum for the soul. A violent past looms, unexpurgated, years of armed rebellion in Argentina at the side of the woman he loves until forced to escape, sailing away with others who also flee the searchers. He goes first to England, later to Italy, where he builds an uncomplicated existence as a gardener, tending the trees of a rich man, drawing sustenance from the land. At half a century, he has come to a place of peace, at a distance from chaos and heartbreak, where his needs are few. Then he meets Laila, a young woman who sells her body but awakens thoughts of his lost Argentinean wife, the sweet mysteries of such an entanglement drawing him into a complex mix of past and present: "Being with her is like life in Argentina, without a day after."

    An African stops at the garden gate; the two men begin a quiet friendship as the narrator offers excess blooms that Selim sells in the market. The gardener believes he has finally finished running, that "now my verb is to stay. There is a woman to love." But reading the ashes of their fire, Selim tells his new friend that he must leave: "The ashes see blood, including yours beside it. The ashes don't say love." But the man has finished with leaving, comforted by his work, the growing of things, nature replenishing itself. The vestiges of the old life still remain and he is ever vigilant, eyes constantly shifting through crowds, the innate wariness of years on the run, the days in Argentina imprinted beneath the layers of the years. He now looks at killing differently, a black mark that cannot be erased: "at night you sleep and every sleep contains absolution, and no matter, the murdered one is still there, attached to you."

    Reassessing the past in light of the present, the narrator has changed, unwilling now to return to his revolutionary ways, always with a glance behind. He has grown contemplative, the gun in his pocket replaced with a book, his words carefully measured. With her easy affection, Laila recalls him for a time, for she is young and has not yet made the decisions that will radically alter her destiny. On every page, DeLuca's prose is riveting, beautifully crafted, a history revealed in phrases that beg to be remembered. The Argentinean revolutionary turns philosopher, a man with a particular history who has heeded life's harsh lessons, grateful to enjoy the bounty of nature and the warmth of the sun upon his hands. Luan Gaines/2005.

  • This is a very poetic novel. De Luca can evoke vivid images with very few words. Sometimes the story was hard to follow because it moved from present to past frequently, but I will read it over and over because the writing is so pure and beautiful. It was probably quite a challenge for the translator to capture the author's voice, but he seems to have done an excellent job.

  • Authentic experience interpretation, detailed spatial depiction, like 3D narration; Humanistic issues and psychological attenuation.

  • A man's life lasts as long as three horses.....
    This story oozes wisdom in every beautiful observation. From the solitude of his garden a man slowly renters life through a cast of unlikely characters.

  • wonderfully poetic!
