The Gray Notebook

El cuaderno gris Josep Pla. El quadern gris is a long book, and my jlsep reaction to it here in no way does it justice. Apparently a classic since so few writers have written in the Catalonian language. He decides to become a journalist instead of a lawyer and the book ends as he gets his first good job in Paris. The journal is filled with wonderful descriptions of the beautiful landscapes of Catalonia, whether it is the mountain cuaderbo above the ocean or the sea ports filled with small fisherboats and the men who work them.

He also went back to the journal in his 60s and rewrote parts before publication. Me gusta Pla cuando escribe del campo, vris mar o de comida.

The Gray Notebook by Josep Pla

La sencillez con que Pla pone sobre el papel las ideas, recuerdos, impresiones, opiniones que le surgen en la cabeza es asombrosa. In fairness, at one point towards the end of the book Pla goes on a long soliloquy requesting that any theoretical readers consume the Gray Notebook in the same fashion which Pla created it, that is to say, in small bursts and over the course of months and even years.


It opens with a young Pla home in Palafrugell from his university in Barcelona, which has been closed as a result of the epidemic of Spanish flu, and it closes, nicely, a bit more than a year later, with Pla about to take up his first post as a foreign correspondent for a Barcelona paper. The Gray Notebook is an attempt to follow that directive. In ,the first year, the university is closed due to influenza, and he writes about each person in his small hometown of Palafrugell, Spain.

As a journalist he worked in France, Italy, England, Germany and Russia, from where he wrote political and cultural chronicles in Catalan.

Of course part of the joy is that the Catalan culture seems to provide such charming examples of this, a culture and language that Pla is able to create out of very little while at the same time referring to a vast history and specific locations and motivations. Tacodisc rated it liked it Aug 09, I probably preferred the entries from Good book, on the whole, and the first book I’ve read all the way through in Catalan I’ve read bits and pieces of other books of Pla’s and a story or two by other writers.

For every bit that was funny, or engaging, or lovely sounding, there is a lot of gossip and X and things that I had no particular interest in. No era exactamente lo que yo me esperaba y me resultaba muy cansado de leer; no me interesaba.

There is no plot to speak of, and nothing really happens, and that’s a tough task to set oneself, and to surmount it one would need to be an excessively brilliant writer, and I didn’t quite feel that Pla meets this high bar.
