María Gainza ð 7 REVIEW REVIEW El nervio óptico 107 The narrator of Optic Nerve is an Argentinian woman whose obsession is art The story of her life is the story of the paintings and painters who matter to her Her intimate digressive voice guides us through a gallery of moments that have touched herIn these pages El Greco visits the Sistine Chapel and is appalled by Michelangelo’s bodies The mystery of Rothko's refusal to finish murals. From the first page I was immediately and intensely endeared to the narrator of Optic Nerve I would follow this narrator on any reading journey wherever she would lead me because the places she leads me sentence by sentence and chapter by chapter are unexpected wonderful startling and humaneThe chapters hang together loosely There is no plot to speak of And yet the pieces and digressions come together again and again to become something whole and true The novel situates you in the mind of an insightful person and makes you wiser as she herself becomes wiser Her epiphanies come to her through the experience of viewing art and thinking about art deeply She lets her experience of art reverberate through her life experience So of course I love this novel because at its core it is championing the idea that contemplation of the arts can be life changing enriching devastating and above all an essential part of what makes us human To have an entire novel make this case at a time in the world where there is so much ugliness and so much attention given to economic utility over aesthetic utility is a giftThis is one of the most personally significant books I ve read since Laurus by Evgenij Vodolazkin Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is an Argentinian woman whose obsession Tycoons Tender Touch Second Sisters # 3 is the story of the paintings and painters who matter to her Her After We Collided intimate digressive voice guides us through a gallery of moments that have touched herIn these pages El Greco visits the Sistine Chapel and Cocaine An Unauthorized Biography is appalled by Michelangelo’s bodies The mystery of Rothko's refusal to finish murals.
