    1. I was a blank page, and now I am a book.We live in the age of computers, where our thoughts and feelings are transcribed into text and, like this review, become another source of data, another heartfelt addition to our My Documents folder. My own folder is filled with reviews, college essays, photographs of my daughter, my resume and other such documents and becomes a catalogue of a human life, a digital replication of the heart and soul. Alejandro Zambra, best known for his breathless and breat [...]

    2. zambra’nın öyküleri en az romanları kadar iyi. romanlarında farklı-yenilikçi anlatım teknikleri ön plana çıkarken, öykülerin çeşitliğinde içeriğin gücünü de görme imkanı buluyoruz. hatta farklı anlatım tekniklerinin kurmaca oyunları olmadığını, doğrudan bu öze ilişkin olduğunu görüyoruz.öykülerin bir özü, hakikati var. bir de bu hakikati anlatma, paylaşma meselesi. kitaba adını veren öyküde bir bilgisayarın belgelerim klasörüne kaydedilen anılar [...]

    3. Alejandro Zambra'nin sade, gosterissiz ama bir o kadar da etkileyici bir uslubu var. Bu kitapta da yine ayni sekilde hayata dair, sade ve basit oykuleri oyle etkileyici anlatmis ki Zambra etkilenmemek mumkun degil. Her oykunun ayri bir tadi olsa da sanirim en cok Ulusal Enstitutu oykusunu begendim. Bir de futbolsever birisi olarak yer yer serpistirilmis futbol gondermeleri cok hostu.

    4. Con este libro confirmo algo que ya venía sospechando: Alejandro Zambra es uno de esos autores que originan devoción, adicción y una compulsión por seguir leyendo cosas escritas por él. "Mis documentos" tiene la misma temática que sus novelas, con cuentos que toman como escenario la clase media chilena para desarrollarse, historias con nada de fantástico y una prosa en apariencia sencilla, pero cuya maestría radica en atrapar al lector y jugar con él como si estuviera en una montaña ru [...]

    5. Yer yer cinsel fantezi sosuna batırılmış (son öyküyü ayrı tutuyorum) ve ince ayrıntılarla süslenmiş hayata dair sade öyküler. Öykülerin özellikle bitiş kısımları Zambra'nın kendine özgü tarzının etkileyiciliğini belirgin şekilde yansıtıyor. Belgelerim, okuduğum Zambra kitapları arasında sıralama yapacak olursam ilk sıraya yazacağım kitap olur.Futbolun 2000'lerin başı ve öncesindeki dönemleri seven biri olarak, Pinochet diktatörlüğüne karşı cesur dur [...]

    6. Caratteri in memoria“Dopo la festa, lo scrittore – che a quei tempi neppure sognava di diventare uno scrittore, sognava molte altre cose, quasi tutte migliori che diventare uno scrittore – si era spaventato enormemente e non aveva più fatto nulla per rivedere Yasna, anzi, evitava il percorso che passava da quella casa, tutte le vie che portavano a quella casa, e non era più andato nemmeno in chiesa, il che comunque non gli richiedeva grande sforzo, perché a quei tempi aveva già smesso [...]

    7. Zambra bir yenilikçi bana kalırsa. Öyküleri bir iç dökme. En sevdiğim ilk öykü ve sigarayı bırakmaya uğraşan adam oldu. Ama hepsinin bir yerinde yine kendinizi buluyorsunuz. Tabi siz de bu kadar samimi ve açık sözlüyseniz. Yoksa anlamaya uğraşmayın. Okuduğum ikinci kitabıydı, son olmayacak.

    8. 1. Qué malas son las portadas de Anagrama. De esto, claro, no tiene culpa Z. 2. Es re bueno Zambra. Cuenta la misma historia romántica mil veces, pero lo hace la raja. Cuando no lo hace, como en el caso de Camilo o Yo fumaba muy bien, también lo hace estupendo.3. Pero qué malo me pareció ese cuento de recuerdos de un computador personal. Raro.

    9. Que bom ter o Zambra de Bonsai de volta e muito melhor. A Vida Privada das Árvores e Formas de Voltar pra Casa não pareciam com o mesmo escritor de Bonsai. Bom reencontrá-lo em Meus Documentos.

    10. Por varias razones de sincronía o casualidad siento que conozco a los personajes de estos cuentos y como lector creo que eso es invaluable.

    11. Having been wholly unfamiliar with 40-year-old Chilean novelist Zambra before reading an altogether positive review of this short-story collection in the NY Times, it was nice to take full advantage of modern telefony and zap this thing to my e-reader not sixty seconds after completing said review. After finding that it took a little time to ramp up, ultimately I found this collection quite goofy, and at times quite illuminative of the dark crevices of the soul, while mostly told in a funny and [...]

    12. These are good short stories and the writing is interesting and original, but as the pervading theme is solitude and the characters are kind of directionless with dead-end jobs, relationships that don't work, etc. I found them a bit depressing -- not helped by the post-modern writing that undermines their solidity even more. So good but definitely dampened my mood.

    13. acho que posso dizer que esse foi meu preferido do Zambra. É comum, em livros de contos, ter um ou dois que são incríveis, alguns passáveis e outros que você simplesmente detesta. Nessa coletânea, todos são espetaculares e conseguem mexer com alguma coisa dentro de você. Me assustei com algumas partes que foram bem pesadas, mas de resto, foi uma leitura muito prazerosa. Recomendado ;)

    14. Huge fan of South American fiction. Huge fan of short fiction. Definitely huge fan of Alejandro Zambra.

    15. Reading Zambra makes me interested in working to rebuild the ruins of my broken Spanish so that I can read this without translation. Not that the translator did an awkward job, on the contrary, the prose is so fluid and playful that I am dying to know how it reads in the original. That being said, if anyone has read this in Spanish, I would be very interested to hear your take. I would say that all of these stories fit nicely together, the only exception, perhaps, being the last story, "Artist's [...]

    16. Öncelikle çevirideki başarısı nedeniyle Çiğdem Öztürk'e teşekkür borçluyuz okur olarak. Zambra, içinde yaşadığımız dönemin genç ve şehirli insanlarının bireysel yaşamlarına ve aile, iş gibi organizasyonlar içinde geçen yaşamlarına ilişkin detayları bulundukları derinlikten alıp yüzeye çıkarıyor, görünür kılıyor. Böylece, kız arkadaşı doktora yapmaya farklı bir ülkeye giden genç adamın nasıl kredi kartı sahibi olduğunu, kız arkadaşının pe [...]

    17. "If 'publish or perish' is an academic creed, Alejandro Zambra abides by 'polish or perish.' The eleven narratives included under an ingenious title, which alludes to whatever notion of archive one adheres to, have been published as fiction, as parts of essays or critical notes. Now organized into three sections, each with a common thread, the character studies within each tale also have a cumulative power that makes Mis documentos perhaps the best short-story collection of the last two decades. [...]

    18. zambra'ya, hafızayla kurduğu ilişkiye, çocukluğu anlatmasına bayılıyorum. tüm bunları anlatırken arada bir cümleyle değiniverdiği politik geçmişe de belgelerim bir öykü kitabı, romanları kadar iyios'a yazdığım yazıyı ekledim tembelveyazar/

    19. Una vez más he disfrutado de un libro de Zambra, en esta serie de relatos destaca por su precisión e intensidad , relatos muy bien logradosAlgunos líneas para recordar :" Mi padre era un computador ,mi madre una máquina de escribir. yo era un cuaderno vacío y ahora soy un libro"

    20. Zambra işte, karşılıklı sohbet eder gibi, günlük konulardan bahseder gibi sakin ve duru bir anlatım. Öykü gibi olmayan çok güzel öyküler

    21. Zambra is neither a prose stylist, nor a constructor of ingenious plots, nor wildly imaginative fantabulist, but he is an agreeably competent storyteller. It's also interesting to read stories that take place in Chile and don't shy away from the way in which the evil, nasty legacy of the Pinochet dictatorship intrudes on ordinary life.

    22. Every once in a while, you find a new writer via recommendation from a website or a friend, and rarely among those authors, you find one whose work arrest you immediately with its directness, complexity and beauty. When you find such a writer you try to read everything by him. You find what he says in an interview, you wonder why have not you read him before. And you start reading his novella "Bonsai" next, and then of course "Ways of Going Home". The fragments of memories in "National Institute [...]

    23. این سومین کتابی بود که از ثامبرا خواندم و قطعاً می‌توانم بگویم یکی از سه نویسنده‌ی زنده‌ی محبوبم است. متاسفانه بدون مثله کردنش نمی‌توان کتاب را در ایران ترجمه و منتشر کرد. ترجمه‌ی انگلیسی‌اش ولی ساده است. توصیه می‌کنم بخوانیدش.

    24. Light Lonesomenessfirst appeared in a different form in The New Indian ExpressAt two-hundred and forty pages, My Documents is Zambra's longest English translated work by a considerable margin; this has us conviced that Zambra is not interested in the big fat Latin American novel, which is strangely comforting. Like his compatriot Roberto Bolano, Zambra’s protagonists are often melancholic soloists; though unlike Bolano’s savage poets, Zambra’s men don’t become vagabonds, choosing instead [...]

    25. A collection of eleven short stories it opens with the title work, “My Documents” and it reads like an autobiography;Mass was held in the gymnasium of a convent school, Master Purissima; people always talked, though, about the church building that was in the works, and it was like they were describing a dream. It took so long to build that by the time it was finished, I no longer believed in God.“Camilo” is a story of a godson, soccer fanaticism, living in Chile under Pinochet, family bo [...]

    26. Creo que a estas alturas son identificables dos facetas en Zambra (incluso tres, si tomamos en cuenta su producción poética): esa narración más continua, menos experimental y más de los hechos, esa que habla de los 80, de ser niño, joven, de ver todo con esa lupa, bajo ese manto gris que resultaron los 80, bajo ese manto que quiso tener colores en los 90 pero que se percudió casi al inicio de todo; y también esta esa narrativa en donde se deja llevar por otros temas, otras obsesiones, en [...]

    27. A escrita de Zambra é uma escrita de afeto: à memória, aos livros, à própria escrita. Um tal afeto que fala mais às minhas paixões que às minhas razões como leitor, e quase sempre embota estas últimas, pra ser bem sincero. Salvo um ou outro conto com um final escorregadio e uma ou outra aparição forçada do Pinochet (a orelha da edição brasileira jogou o contexto da ditadura como isca e a crítica, claro, adorou morder), acho a coletânea irretocavelmente bela.

    28. A fantastic collection of short stories; some of autobiographical fictions are brilliantly written, especially "I smoked vey well" (the sheer joy of reading this piece was like reading Jenny Offill's Dept. of Speculations), which links smoking to writing and living itself. This book contains a lot of sex, soccer and pisco sour (relationships).
