She barely leaves you any time to catch your breath. All Yours is a rollercoaster ride. You go up, down, left and right, faster and faster. And then, before you know it, barely pages later, its all over. Yet, the only thing she is concerned with is maintaining the cozy status quo. Her reasoning soon takes on psychotic characteristics and as she spirals out of control she reminds me of Juan Pablo Castel from the novel The Tunnel written by another Argentinian writer — Ernesto Sabato.
So I started going through his pockets, opening his mail, keeping an eye on his diary, listening in on the extension when was on the telephone. The kinds of things that any woman in my situation would do. She claims she knows her husband better than anyone because she knows all his habits and pet-peeves. He is just a husband-figure without any human shape. And even then we learn more about her through the meaningful ellipses. And we soon realise that Lali is pregnant, something her mother failed to notice too busy covering up the illicit affairs of her husband.
All Yours, while pretending to be a crime novel, is really a take on the all time favourite literary theme: the decay of the middle class. So much has been written on the subject that it is very hard to bring something new to table.
While not terribly original, this portrait is still very accurate. The story is strong and interesting but the novella seems rushed. It was a very enjoyable read but frustrating at the same time because of its sparseness. But we have a lifetime supply of these.
