Francamente Mendoza tiene mejores novelas que ofrecer. Although it’s set in the 1st Century AD in Galilea under the occupation of the Roman army, and it features a Roman citizen as its lead character, a man of learning from a noble family who considers himself a philosopher, in reality ‘El asombroso viaje de Pomponio Flato’ isn’t really all that flaot from Eduardo Mendoza’s other comedy novels.
In fact, in many respects it’s practically a rewrite of ‘El misterio de la cripta embrujada’, only set in Galilea instead of pre-Olympics Barcelona.
What the novel loses in terms of originality and contemporary satire however, it gains from having one notable element that you won’t find in the earlier book – as you might have guessed from the period and the setting, ‘Pomponio Flato’ has a certain Jesus as a main character in this wonderfully absurd and funny detective story. Instead of an inmate from a lunatic asylum heading up the investigation then – and achieving results more through perseverance and circumstance than guile – here we have a similarly “challenged” individual caught up in a web of intrigue that turns out to be rather more complicated than he initially thought.
That case involves a carpenter, Joseph, who has been condemned to death for the murder of a rich merchant, and – to add insult to injury – he has to construct his own crucifix, a task that he nonetheless carries out with all the pride of a true craftsman. Two years searching the far reaches of the Roman Empire looking for a cure to his intestinal problems and chronic diarrhoea with little knowledge of the region and its political turmoil, Pomponio Flato would appear to be the person least suitable to be engaged to prove his innocence, but the carpenter’s young son believes in the Roman’s innate sense of justice and also knows that he can use the money offeredand who are we to argue with the wisdom of Jesus of Nazareth?
There’s inevitably a Monty Python’s ‘Life of Brian’ feel to the way Pomponio investigates, with a young Jesus in tow being subjected to all manner of strange people and happenings that would appear to influence his outlook later in life, the story even shedding some light on the Resurrection of Christ in the process.
There are inevitably encounters with other well-known figures such as Lazarus, Judas and John the Baptist, as well as Good Samaritans and women of ill-repute – all of them less like their biblical depictions than the familiar types of characters that usually appear in Mendoza novels.
While there’s a certain amount of hilarity involved in this unconventional outlook on this undocumented episode in the childhood of Jesus, the strength of the work is really in its typically Mendozian character – its dry wit and respectful satire of crime fiction given a new spin that also satirises I don’t know about respectfully biblical stories and their mysterious meanings.
Gently philosophical and a bit daft, El asombroso viaje de Pomponio Flato might not be quite as funny as the author’s other comedies, but this is a nice fun diversion from a great writer. See all 4 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now.
