JOSEP PLA

JOSEPH-PLA_THE-GRAY-NOTEBOOK1000

JOSEP-PLA300Pla had to live under censorship for much of his life: first during Primo de Rivera’s dictatorship, later in Italy and Germany (where he worked as a correspondent during the rise of the Falange), and during Francisco Franco’s long rule. Although he initially sympathized with the dictatorship (he wrote in 1940 that it was “in the general interest”), his support only lasted a few months. He soon began to show skepticism, especially as it became impossible to publish in Catalan. Although he always maintained a moderate political stance that allowed him to publish, he was deeply uncomfortable with Franco’s tireless censorship (he wrote in one of his diaries that it was “the worst that [I] have known”, carried out by “servants of fanaticism”). He hated the regime’s disdain for Catalan language and culture and its stubborn inability to turn itself into a democracy, not even a tutelary one.

The most important characteristics of the “Planian” literary style are simplicity, irony, and clarity. Extremely modest and sensitive to ridicule, he detested artifice and empty rhetoric. Throughout his literary life, he remained faithful to his own style: “the necessity of a clear, precise, and restrained writing” and his lack of interest in literary fiction, cultivating a dry style, apparently simple, practical, and devoted to that which is real. He was an acute observer of reality in its smallest details and he gave a faithful testimony of the society of his time.

His works show a subjective and colloquial vision, anti-literary, in which he stresses, nevertheless, an enormous stylistic effort by calling things by their names and “coming up with the precise adjective”, one of his most persistent literary obsessions. An untiring writer, from his viewpoint life is chaotic, irrational, and unjust, while the longing for equality and revolutions are a delusion that incites worse wrongs than those that it tries to put a stop to. Conservative and rational, he was not inclined to action, but voluptuousness and sensuality: the pleasure of putting the world down on paper. A good conservative, he ate well and drank better (as an old man, whisky made up a good part of his diet), an inveterate smoker, he wore a bowler hat from his youth and later was inseparable from his country beret. He hated banality, cultural affectations (he never included quotations in his works, despite being a reader of the classics) and “people who talk just to hear themselves.” So he wrote: “It is more difficult to write than to think, much more difficult: so everyone thinks”.

Pla lived a life completely dedicated to writing. The extent of his Obres Completes (Complete Works, 46 volumes and nearly 30,000 pages), which is a collection of all his journals, reports, articles, essays, biographies, novels, and some poems gives an idea of its daunting work schedule while complicating its chronological classification. Many of these pages are the fruit of a hard process of rewriting texts from his youth and weekly articles that were published in Destino for nearly 40 years, as well as hundreds of articles published in different newspapers and an abundance of correspondences.

Thematic classification is not easy either, as many articles appeared in different locations with some changes, his thematic repertoire is extensive and, above all, the boundaries between the genres that he developed are not always clear.

DAN FANTE

DAN-FANTE_FANTE1000

DAN-FANTE_FANTE-A-MEMOIR300Dan Fante (born 1944 in Los Angeles, California) is an American author and playwright.

Chump Change, Mooch,”86’d” and Spitting Off Tall Buildings comprise a trilogy, based around Fante’s hard living alter-ego Bruno Dante. Chump Change found publication in France originally, before being published in the US by Sun Dog Press. The trilogy was then published by UK publisher Canongate. Short Dog is a collection of short stories, based around Fante’s life as a cab driver in LA.

Fante is the son of acclaimed novelist John Fante whose writing came back into vogue after Charles Bukowski declared him “my God”, and wrote the introduction to the reprint of Fante’s seminal novel about life in Los Angeles, Ask the Dust.

As well as novels and short stories, Fante is the author of two plays – “The Closer / The Boiler Room” described by the Los Angeles Times as “Ferociously Profane”, and “Don Giovanni”, about which 3:AM Magazine said: “For those who want to know what is REALLY going on in post-modern American literature right now, Don Giovanni should be essential reading.” Both plays are published in book form by Long Beach publisher Burning Shore Press. He is also the author of A Gin-Pissing-Raw-Meat-Dual-Carburetor-V8-Son-Of-A-Bitch From Los Angeles, a volume of poetry on Wrecking Ball Press.

WAMPETERS

leave a comment

A “wampeter” is an object around which the lives of many otherwise unrelated people may revolve. The Holy Grail would be a case in point. “Foma” are harmless untruths, intended to comfort simple souls. An example: “Prosperity is just around the corner.” A “granfalloon” is a proud and meaningless association of human beings. (Kurt Vonnegut)
