    1. I think a lot about a guy I travelled with when I was a teenager and living briefly in Morocco he was a genial, moon faced, gangly kid called Iain who seemed to love every new place we visited he lounged expansively at medina tea rooms, squinted beatifically into Essaouiran sunsets, and could score a fistful of hash within minutes of disembarking at a bus station I can almost see him now angling his head and grinning from ear to ear.Some weeks after we parted ways, he killed himself in one of th [...]

    2. RIFLESSI IN UN OCCHIO D ORO Annemarie Schwarzenbach scrisse molto, l elenco delle sue opere lungo ma il suo vero romanzo, probabilmente l unico, fu la sua stessa vita La fotografa che nel 1931 scatt questo ritratto Marianne Breslauer, allieva e assistente di Man Ray disse Ero completamente sconcertata alla vista di questa persona Che mi appar un essere d un tipo mai incontrato prima E se mi avessero detto che era l Arcangelo Gabriele alle porte del paradiso, l avrei creduto Infatti non era come [...]

    3. I knew nothing about Annemarie Schwarzenbach I don t know when or why I ordered this book It arrived unexpectedly like a gift and astonished me.There are classics of melancholy and this is certainly one of them At times I was reminded of Du Fu, W G Sebald, of Robert Byron and Lawrence Durrell Of the fatal sadness at the heart of A Month in the Country or One Hot Summer in St Petersburg The line We had wanted to talk about happiness and didn t notice that we were thinking about death reminded me [...]

    4. The feverish weariness that Death in Persia provokes feels like being trapped in a hot room, but with magical landscapes and captivating portraits of death and depression I felt stuck in a dream while reading it, with a growing lack of control I look forward to reading of Annemarie s work, and returning to this one in the future.

    5. When I first start reading this book, I was quite disappointed, because I was expecting a lot And this a lot pertains to that idea of a woman who was bashing against the ideologies of her home country So, yes, I was hoping for a lot introspective rage But then I realized her struggle was suddenly rising and adding up to the fact that she was in a whole different country, with clashing ideologies and ways of living Her lack of inner strength and will to die threw me around the edges And her lo [...]

    6. Ao ler a sinopse deste livro, cuja autora n o conhecia, tive de imediato a impress o de que provavelmente n o era o momento de o ler Nunca se sabe se, noutra altura, seria mais oportuno N o obstante, o facto de ser sobre a P rsia o elemento que me levou a pegar nele deu me disposi o para lhe dar o benef cio da d vida e encetar a leitura N o , afinal, um livro muito grande Cedo percebi que o meu receio se confirmava e n o desisti de o levar a leitura at ao fim, movido pela esperan a de que talvez [...]

    7. Dif cil valorar este libro Para comenzar la escritora y protagonista me genera mucha empat a entonces, per se, quiero que me guste el libro.La parte del viaje como tal que son s lo los primeros cap tulos no me gust mucho porque es muy descriptivo en plan vamos por el rio X, y vemos la monta a Y, etc Sin conseguir superar la mera descripci n.Luego abandona eso y se dedica a s misma El libro, aunque se lee f cilmente, dista de ser un libro entretenido En realidad es un libro triste porque lo que m [...]

    8. Maybe there isn t a better definition for this book than the one the author provides, as this is indeed an impersonal diary Don t expect this book to be a travel guide The description of the landscapes and, importantly, of the sensations are moving and make the reader feel close to the author.

    9. More romantic and emotionally overwrought than I prefer, but formally interesting Schwarzenbach plays a bit role in Enard s recent Compass, and I look forward to reading plenty of Annemarie, and then re reading that novel.
