Item description for En Ausencia de Blanca by Antonio Munoz Molina...

Mario Lopez, a young man who never stayed after work for the usual happy hour, lives almost exclusively for his wife, Blanca. For a civil employee like him, whose life is monotonous, Blanca embodies the sunshine in his life, and in return, he brings tranquility and stability to hers. Mario however has a constant fear of losing her, a fear of abandonment and the outside world will manage to make that happen. Description in Spanish: Mario, un joven funcionario de provincias, vive dedicado a su trabajo y, sobre todo, a su mujer, Blanca, por quien siente una profunda fascinacin. Juntos forman una pareja complementaria: l encarna la sencillez, la paz del hogar, la fortaleza; ella, en cambio, representa el lado exquisito de la vida, pero tambin la inestabilidad. Por eso Mario vive intranquilo, siempre alerta. Percibe que algo inquietante amenaza su unin.

Reviews - What do customers think about En Ausencia de Blanca?

A most disliked character  Oct 28, 2006
Even though Munoz Molina makes the reader want to read his short novel without wanting to stop, this reader enjoyed reading it for the whole purpose of disliking the male protagonist more and more as the plot went on. Mario is a weakling, a man who is so afraid of losing Blanca, his wife, that he will not be himself. There are times when he seems to want to quit this masochistic relationship, and face losing his wife in order to be himself and live his real life, but he never does it. The one redeeming moment when he would tell his spoiled, purposeless, drug-alcohol-sex addicted wife to walk out the door, never comes to the dismay of this reader and those other readers who have to put up with two of the most pitiful characters in contemporary Spanish narrative.
