‘The Muxlows’ is the history of an English family from Yorkshire. I found it in 1972, in the city of Leeds, in the last pages of a badly damaged bible. U.C. Text by Ulises Carrión on fly leave.
This book is a dry list of names that goes back to 1835 when Thomas Muxlow was born. The first page of the book starts with this genealogical fact. In the first chapter “Parents names” mention birth and death. It is followed by chapters “Childrens names”, “Marriages” and “Other family events” listing no more than time of birth and death. In this way a family story is told as a drama, i.e. family members come and go. Again with this book Carrión’s shows his strong affinity with the method of archival order to set out a story similar to writing a novel.
In the books Ulises Carrión has made, lists are one of his favorite methods to give structure to what is aid and shown; archival order, sequence, the experience of time, etc. In his book “Dancing with You” he has made a kind of ode to someone he likes dancing with. The musical scores on the cover and a list with poem-like descriptions of each classical dance makes the book into joyful combination of rhythm, language and music.
