Restless Books Brooklyn, NY. Where the Bird Sings Best. Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Restless Books Brooklyn, NY. A bird sings best in its family tree. This reality was further transformed and magnified until it achieved the status of myth. In 1903 Teresa, my paternal grandmother, got angry: first with God and then with all the Jews of Ekaterinoslav (now Dnipropetrovsk, in Ukraine) who still believed in Him despite the deadly flood of the Dnieper.

by Alejandro Jodorowsky (Author), Alfred MacAdam (Translator). His new l novel Where the Bird Sings Best, translated by Alfred MacAdam, is his magnum opus, a fantastical something that in many ways mirrors the author himself: It is brilliant, mad, unpredictable. It's not difficult to see why Where the Bird Sings Best has been compared to Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude. But Jodorowsky's saga stands firmly on its ow. .

Weird might be my choice if I had to describe Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Where the Bird Sings Best in one word. That was my biggest impression, but there are so many dimensions to this autobiographical novel that make it unique and at the same time another masterpiece of Latin American literature.

Alejandro Jodorowsky. Her beloved son José perished in the flood. Her beloved son José perished in the flood thirty-seven tractates of the Talmud. After the burial, carrying all the children she had left, four toddlers-Jaime and Benjamín, Lola and Fanny-who were conceived more out of obligation than passion, she ferociously invaded the synagogue with her husband hot on her heels.

He has translated works by Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, Juan Carlos Onetti, José Donoso, and Jorge Volpi among others.

Alejandro Jodorowsky; Alfred MacAdam, trans. The novelized family history of Where the Bird Sings Best feels like a creation myth. Restless Books, 2014. They form a tradition, in short. Alejandro’s parents’ stories unravel during formative periods of Jewish history, and they meet some of those periods’ foremost figures. Meet is an inadequate word, though, because their interactions are passionate, spiritual, sexual, psychedelic and edifying.

Alejandro too felt the ominous attack. His face pale, he said between his teeth, Walk behind me and carry the bags as if you were a servant.

Where the Bird Sings Best. In this wildly imaginative, powerfully moving, psychomagical vel, legendary filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky tells the story of how his Ukrainian Jewish grandfather (also named Alejandro), his fiery wife, Teresa, and their four children moved to Chile under fake passports and assumed Christian identities, with only a half-kopek to their name, and no idea how they’d forge their new. lives

The magnum opus from Alejandro Jodorowsky—director of The Holy Mountain, star of Jodorowsky’s Dune, spiritual guru behind Psychomagic and The Way of Tarot, innovator behind classic comics The Incal and Metabarons, and legend of Latin American literature.There has never been an artist like the polymathic Chilean director, author, and mystic Alejandro Jodorowsky. For eight decades, he has blazed new trails across a dazzling variety of creative fields. While his psychedelic, visionary films have been celebrated by the likes of John Lennon, Marina Abramovic, and Kanye West, his novels—praised throughout Latin America in the same breath as those of Gabriel García Márquez—have remained largely unknown in the English-speaking world. Until now. Where the Bird Sings Best tells the fantastic story of the Jodorowskys’ emigration from Ukraine to Chile amidst the political and cultural upheavals of the 19th and 20th centuries. Like One Hundred Years of Solitude, Jodorowsky’s book transforms family history into heroic legend: incestuous beekeepers hide their crime with a living cloak of bees, a czar fakes his own death to live as a hermit amongst the animals, a devout grandfather confides only in the ghost of a wise rabbi, a transgender ballerina with a voracious sexual appetite holds a would-be saint in thrall. Kaleidoscopic, exhilarating, and erotic, Where the Bird Sings Best expands the classic immigration story to mythic proportions.
Rollers from Abdun
Huge, weird, joyous, raunchy, full of family legends and disturbingly compelling and surreal incest, Tarot and Jewish mysticism, lovers embalmed in honey and lion tamers more lion than tamer, this book is crazy and yet also completely engrossing and relatable. Even if you haven't seen Jodorowsky's films (but even better if you have), you're in for a treat. I won't describe the plot, because it's impossible to describe, but if maximalism and sexual freedom and really excellent and inventive writing are your bag, then I highly recommend Where the Bird Sings Best.

I agree with all the great things other people've written in their reviews. My addition, for people who already love and admire Jodorowsky's movies, is that reading this book is like plunging into one of his movies (and that's what you do with his movies, "plunge into" them) that lasts for 20 hours. Certainly one of the most thrilling and satisfying "novels" I've ever read. As Patti Smith said once about William S. Burroughs, "We just can't worship him enough."

This is literally the best novel I have ever read. If you like Julio Cortázar, Gabriel García Márquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and surrealism, you really need to check out this novel. Jodorowsky's colorful tale about the journey of his ancestors from the Old World to the New.novel will stretch your imagination, and possibly alter your consciousness. The world needs more books like this.

I wish I could give Where the Bird Sings Best seven stars. This novel makes most other novels seem stupid and worthless. His writing is pure magic. As I read, I had two main feelings -- HOW is he doing this with mere words? and WHY can't there be more books like this?
Beahelm
A very strange world indeed. Sometimes goes off in bizarre twists and turns but it kept me riveted. Jodorowsky has a very poor opinion of the human race. For the most part he's right.
Vut
This book is a little "off the wall." but very deep and meaningful. Full of mystical symbolism.
Brightcaster

Totally absorbing and mind expanding!
