The Neruda Case is a great book is a mystery that stars the famous poet and one of my very favorite poets personally Pablo Neruda I love his poetry so much my husband and I actually had one of his poems read at our wedding as one of the readings so I was very excited to get a fictional glimpse of what the man was actually like Mysteries are not my usual fare but I really enjoyed this one Through Cayetano taking on Pablo Neruda s case we get to learn about Pablo Neruda and the politics of 1970s Chile which was a very tumultuous but fascinating time in the country I really liked how Ampuero was able to weave all of these elements together in order to create a story that will appeal to so many different readersThe book also has a fantastic setting Throughout the book Cayetano travels in order to solve Neruda s case I m not sure if I ve mentioned it before but back in college I had a focus in Latin American politics so that area of the world is absolutely fascinating to me I loved seeing Chile Mexico and Cuba through the eyes of the characters I thought you got a very good sense of what was going on in each country This book definitely makes for good armchair traveling

Chile The 1970s The beloved but flawed Allende government falls to the infamously repressive Pinochet government But just before this Pablo Neruda the Nobel Prize winning poet in residence tasks Cayetano Brul Cuban exile to find an early loverto see if the child she bears shortly after their Mexican love affair is indeed his own This 2012 translation of a work published in 2008 gives us an intimate if fictional portrait of Pablo Neruda Author Ampuero in an afterword to the novel speaks of his idolization of the artist in Santiago as a child which grew into a fascination with Neruda s life Ampuero wanted to show Neruda as he was a complicated man of great contradictions I favor a nuanced view of great artists and leaders Ian McEwan wrote of a fictional Nobel Prize winning scientist in Solar and managed the nuance mixed much ribaldry but did not base his work on just one man An interview with Ampuero in the online magazine The Daily Beast states that Neruda was in fact a serial monogamist just as he is depicted in the novel Neruda actually had and left three or four wives I think it is safe to assume that a man who can write movingly about love has experienced it in spades Great men often have great appetites Ampuero wanted to show the man as he was not just as he is imagined to beMy interest in this novel is the South American ness of it the point of view the seasons the food the language The literature and music spoken of in the book for whatever reason is generally what Europeans and North Americans were reading or listening to at the time Occasionally Ampuero speaks of bolero and carimba but as now when we read of detectives based in Europe or Africa oftentimes they are listening to something America or Europe has producedTowards the end of this novel my mind began to wander I wanted things to progress faster but I think Ampuero was intent on placing Neruda s life in its historical context Despite my impatience with the slow unfolding of the mystery I appreciated the fullness of the story by the end I read elsewhere that there are five books in the Detective Cayetano Brul series of which this is not the first Ampuero apparently now works out of the University of Iowa where he attended the Iowa Workshop
