Nswerable and often absurd It offers a new kind of reading xperience one where the reader participates directly in the creation of meaning Full of humor melancholy and anger Multiple Choice is about love and family; privacy and the limits of closeness; how a society is affected by the legacies of the past; and the conviction that rather than learning to think we are trained to obey and repeat Serious in its literary ambition but playful in its xecution Multiple Choice confirms Alejandro Zambra as one of the most important writers working in any language. Multiple Choice is a one of a kind read in the best possible way Chilean author Alejandro Zambra innovatively styled his new book after the Chilean Academic Aptitude Test which students took Dance Real Slow every December from 1967 to 2003 if they planned to apply to college in Chile Specifically he chose the Verbal Aptitude section as he took it in 1993 which consisted of ninety multiple choice uestions contained in five sections Whileach This work is all kinds of novel Chilean novelist Zambra really puts us through our paces by making us actually participate in the process of his fiction He gives us choices on how to finish his sentences He starts simply nough asking Us To Decide Which Word to decide which word no relation to the words given The structure of the book copies the Verbal section of the Chilean Academic Aptitude Test reuired of all applicants to university in Chile Our minds race with the possibilities he s given us and we can be as cynical and hard yed or hilarious and droll as any teenager in marking the answers and thinking of our own Next comes Sentence Order and the test maker is acting like a disaffected teenager himself his sentences starting out short and perhaps only a little sarcastic progressing to longer sentences that sound bitter and angry to his last uestion featuring a page longer sentences that sound bitter and angry to his last uestion featuring a page sentences we are meant to order including words like pain and tumor and going from the general to the specific and mentioning General Pinochet for the first timeThe section marked Sentence Completion is pretty The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life easy because the test maker does not give us as many choices as he might have He seems almost to be steering us We can t just think up answershe is strong arming us to conclusions as a result of his sentences We chafe a little under his direction In the penultimate section Sentence Elimination we start getting the feel of the potentiality in this form Zambia here reminds me of a famous Chekhov monologue called The Evils of Tobacco In that monologue a distinguishedducator who has been asked to give a speech on tobacco veers off topic into the state of his health what he likes to at and how he despairs of his wife Our test maker in Sentence Elimination starts with short sentences though they are already vocative and gradually starts talking about family a hated father government liminations and other soul baring terrors We forget which sentence to liminate The final section Reading Comprehension vokes Saramago Remember in sentence to liminate The final section Reading Comprehension vokes Saramago Remember in the Names Saramago created a government functionary who was supposed to do a boring job filing the names of all the folks who died That bureaucrat started getting creative investigating the deaths instead of just filing them away Well here our test maker uite loses his detachment and begins a long confession on how he learned to cheat on tests and how it brought his cheating classmates togetheronly to further disclose how his classmates lived loved playedYou get the picture In the final uestions to test comprehension we see that he has lost all objectivity and is telling us instead what he has learnedBravo Zambra The form fulfills its potential Translated by Megan McDowell Update May 2020 many universities are now no longer reuiring the almost useless SAT or ACT for admission to universities a hopeful trend to hopefully begin to dismantle the billion dollar standardized test industrySo did Alejandro Zambra actually I agree with those who label this little book as pretentious but I guess I don t mind pretentious as long the authora Has something interesting to sayb Says what he has to say in an interesting wayc Is interested in transmitting something beyond what he is sayingd Is not interested in how. “ Multiple Choice is unlike anything I’ve ver The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, encountered before Reading this book is a wonderfully disconcerting and unforgettablexperience” Francisco Goldman author of Say Her Name   “There is no writer like Alejandro Zambra no one as bold as subtle as funny Multiple Choice is his most accomplished work yet This book is not to be missed”  Daniel Alarcón author of At Night We Walk In Circles A masterful pioneering new work of fiction by “Latin America’s new literary star” The New Yorker   The works of Alejandro Zambra “the most. ,
