Jaume Cabré: “It’s the author’s sight becoming the sight of the god who has created this narrative world…”

article's cover image (Jaume Cabré: “It’s the author’s sight becoming the sight of the god who has created this narrative world…”)
 A lover of books cannot but find this one extraordinary. “Confiteor” by the Catalan writer Jaume Cabré stands out, even judging by its cover: the image of a young well-dressed boy, the son of an aristocratic family of times gone by, with his brillantined hair perfectly parted on the side, reaching for the book of his choice in front of an enormous bookcase. It’s exactly how one imagines the hero of this novel, Adrià Ardevol y Bosch as a boy in 1950s Barcelona. “Confiteor” unravels the love confession, the unspoken truths, the colossal letter of an “absent-minded wise 60 year-old man” addressing his dead beloved, in his effort to give her a present that will live eternally, so that he also will go on living “everytime someone reads these pages”, before Alzheimer’s kills off his brain for ever, devouring his memories.
