Comments Una de dos

  • jeremy

    the second of daniel sada's works to appear in english translation, one out of two (una de dos), while offering much to admire, is not nearly as commanding or remarkable an outing as almost never. it is, nonetheless, an engaging and seductive tale - of twin sisters contending for the affections of one man (with him none the wiser). the late mexican author's novella, published in its original spanish twenty years ago, features a similar prose style, unique employment of language, and the liberal [...]

  • Agustín Fest

    Tomé este libro por dos motivos: en donde vivo se habla mucho de Sada (y me dio una sana curiosidad que se convirtió en una comenzón que evolucionaría a caso del Dr. House) y creí, por la solapa, que me encontraría algo parecido a Ibargüengoitia. Ambos motivos, como suele suceder con las lecturas impulsivas de un libro, fueron errados e iluminadores. No, no se parece en nada a la prosa de Ibargüengoitia. Y mi curiosidad por Sada se vio recompensada pero por otros motivos. El libro es apa [...]

  • Lark Benobi

    It's like a miniature painting, meticulous in detail, if small in scope. One Out of Two starts out in a light-hearted way and so the ending was a little more heartbreaking than I expected it to be. The sisters Constitución and Gloria make choices, together and individually, that force them to give up one kind of love for the sake of another. It's a lovely story.

    3.5 stars.

    Translating Daniel Sada is difficult! There are so many things about the way he writes in Spanish that don't lend themselves easily to translationAnd so far translators have not yet attempted his most challenging works.First: Rhythm: Sada is known for his rollicking prose that often mimics formal verse in structure. The work he's best known for in Spanish,Porque parece mentira la verdad nunca se sabe (Because It Seems Like a Lie the Truth is Never Known) is written in what the Paris Review calls [...]

  • Jhones Rocha

    Criativo com uma linguagem bem diferente.

  • Subashini

    Enchanting and deceptively light-footed with a core of bleakness that is kept at bay due to the brevity of the book. This novella is more of a fable with an unusual rhythmic prose style that requires close attention: commas and colons are used in particular ways. Sada refers to destiny as a "trickster demon", but so is his narrative. Credit to the translator, Katherine Silver. A bittersweet and unforgettable story about what it takes to live a life wedded to someone else; in this case, not a spo [...]

  • Saul Souto

    Lástima que no tenga opción de poner medias estrellas, un 3.5 sería más justo. Muy entretenida novela, valió la pena.

  • Gina

    It really does read as a painting, one where the artist draws attention to all the lines that compose a scene. The use of colons instead of dashes especially draws of the inevitability of one thing leading to another. That being said, it never felt more than anything but a small fable, a tidbit to see on the way to something more emotionally affecting.

  • César Nuñez

    Esta novela la compré hace un bojote de años. Sé que una vez intenté leerla y no hubo corazón. A raíz de haber leído algún material sobre la vida y obra de Daniel Sada, decidí abordar de nuevo el texto en cuestión Valió la pena. Esta tragicomedia de aires sainetescos, está condenadamente bien escrita.

  • Mariana

    The story tells of a bizarre romance carried out by the Gamal sisters, who are nearly identical twins on the verge of spinsterhood. I don’t like spoilers so I will limit my review to sharing my own experience: the cadence of Sada’s prose -which he achieves with his unusual placement of colons and semicolons- communicated a sense of subdued anxiety, an empathetic feeling of desire for individuality and at the same time the fear of being one, alone. The fate of the twins (which is what drives [...]

  • Gila Gila

    Some lovely imagery, but I was so rankled by the misogyny in this tale of twin 40 year old "spinsters" (there's a drinking game, a shot for every time that word appears in One out of Two) that I couldn't give myself over to their story. The language is often poetic, as the reviews suggest, but a poetic description doesn't gloss over presenting identical women deemed so ugly that the prospect of marriage for either one is unlikely. My favourite parts of this very slender novel - really a novella [...]

  • Lauren

    A translation out of Mexico, One Out of Two tells the story of two forty-something identical twin sisters who live their lives as if they were one person operating in two bodies. This oneness mutates in the days leading up to a family wedding, resulting in both sisters imagining the possibility of different futures.So the concept is absurd, but Mr. Sada recognizes that and uses it to his advantage, continually twisting the tale so it’s not at all clear how he will resolve it. The style hampers [...]

  • Natalie Williams

    Wowza! These two identical twin sisters had me going like a Yo-Yo! For just a teensy bit, I thought the competition for Oscar would sunder these two apart . . . and yet, I could not imagine it, for they truly seemed to be the literal embodiment of "two peas in a pod". Who hasn't known identical twins who didn't pull something like this off once in awhile? I remember two who went to each other's classes and dated each other's boyfriends . . . but to carry it on for over a year??? It's as though C [...]

    "One Out of Two, by Daniel Sada, describes the lives of the Gamal twins, Constitución and Gloria. Their lives are ruled by their very togetherness until Oscar Segura enters the scene. Now there is a distraction, an interruption of their very togetherness, a variation to their otherwise normal, boring lives. Will one of the two surrender herself to him and leave her alter ego to fend for herself as a singleton? Herein lies the enchantment of this novelette that dissects the experiences and combi [...]

  • Karen

    An interesting novella, translated from the Spanish. Two identical twins, spinsters in their early forties, are running their business in a small Spanish town, making and altering clothing for women. When one of the sisters travels to their cousin's wedding, she meets a man there, a possible husband, and from there the story takes an interesting twiste sisters are identical in every way, given even to replicating one another's gestures, facial expressions, etc. and they decide to take turns meet [...]

  • Emmanuel Medina

    Gloria y Concepción Gamal son hermanas. Gemelas. Parecidas hasta el punto de perderse en una identidad que se retuerce en un mundo de costuras y de compartirse un galán porque ya son solteronas en un pueblo polvoriento: novela corta de lenguaje de alto alcance donde el escritor nacido en Mexicali, Daniel Sada, se acerca, maravillosamente, a la poesía vuelta habla popular. Vuelta costuras infinitas y perfectas como el juego de espejos de las hermanas ansiosas de amor. Una obra costumbrista que [...]

  • Mónica

    No es que sea un mal libro ESELPEORLIBRODELMUNDO nada más que hay algo que tiene el autor, al momento de narrar la historia, que no me termina de gustar PROSAPOÉTICAMISPOLAINASESPROSAPATÉTICA. Sin embargo, la historia es bien chida cuando nos habla de estas dos mujeres que son gemelas idénticas y que deciden vivir su vida sin que nadie pueda distinguirlas, olvidándose muchas veces si su propio nombre les pertenece o si son su hermana y no se han dado cuenta. Está bien padre esa onda. Pero [...]

  • julieta

    No había leído nada de D Sada, y la verdad no está mal, la historia de las gemelas que deciden compartir al novio tiene momentos chistosos, el tono en general te mete en el mundo de ellas, un poco anticuado y perdido en un pueblo, de dos outsiders me gustó el sentido del humor, aunque me desesperó un poco el ritmo, y tiene algo con la puntuación que supongo que es estilo, pero fué muy desesperante. Igual me quedo con ganas de leer otro libro suyo.

  • Wendy Yu

    3.5 but rounding up b/c extra points for a short book that a busy mom of two can start and finish.Back cover over-hyped the ending, but otherwise interesting, entertaining, unique.Thought I was going to learn about sisterhood, but surprisingly got more and better nuggets and widom about choosing a career.

  • Guillermo Jiménez

    Esta es una pequeña muestra del talento de Daniel Sada. No su mejor trabajo, no el más completo, pero sí una buena introducción. La historia es increíble como puede ser el norte mexicano, el lenguaje se presta a pocas interpretaciones pues raya en lo lacónico y no se subleva al significado único de lo que es golpeado y directo.

  • Mireya

    Interesante la historia de las cuatas, podría decirse en momentos chistosa, pero su manejo del lenguaje no me gustó lo quiso poner muy al estilo del norte de México y le salió mal, no pudo con el ritmo.

  • Onto The Next Book

    I thought it was weird. Being a twin myself I can't imagine having one mind. Anyway, it wasn't bad. The twins seemed a bit freakish which isn't bad. Just seems like a sad world, when you whole world is your twin. The ending wasn't what I hoped for but still a good read.

  • Erika Maria

    Nuevo autor para mi, me parece que de no haber muerto tan joven, sería mayor y mas conocida su obra, tiene un estilo interesante, a veces me tuve que regresar, de ahora en adelante, ante gemelas idénticas, a tomar precauciones!!

  • Meg

    not a super big fan of the third person narration but the plot is pretty hilarious and weird

  • Lanie Tankard

    Here's my review:bit/1UAfc1irichardgilbert/daniel-sada-

  • Jafar

    These two wicked twin sisters are up to no good! It's interesting that the translator has decided to copy the punctuation style that is used in Spanish.

  • Jula

    Historietita con música de poema. Curioso libro y buena historia, la verdad.

  • Steven

    This was a big surprise in a thin volume! Not unlike a poem, you have to read every word to get the full meaning and picture. Such a simple premise and such an earthquake that results.
