Golpe de fortuna (Abra) (Spanish Edition) by Santiago Gonzalez Martinez PDF

ISBN-13: 9788480918596

El reloj es el más inquietante símbolo de l. a. muerte, el segundo es l. a. rutina. Bajo el acecho combinado de estas dos fuerzas discurren nuestros días. ¿Por qué malgastar minutos de nuestras vidas en repetir actos que conocemos hasta el hastío? Tal vez, esto resulte exagerado para el ejercicio de los angeles vida cotidiana, pero no para un ámbito como el de los angeles creación, donde esta propuesta debería resultar esencial, definitiva. Ésta fue, sin duda, los angeles fórmula utilizada por Borges contra el tiempo y los angeles rutina: el cuento corto.Con esta suerte de logro se toparán los lectores de este libro, con una literatura absoluta, indivisible, visceral, soñada, porque detrás de cada uno de estos cuentos está toda l. a. vida del autor, con todas sus utopías y sus noches de insomnio, aun cuando haya algunos que hubieran sido escritos en poco tiempo, en dos tardes, en una sentada. Tras l. a. lectura de estos relatos se descubre que hay en ellos una intención encubierta, una carta de navegación, un guiño, un cifrado guide de supervivencia que, al ultimate, habrá de resultarnos útil a todos, imprescindible, porque también para eso están hechos, para ayudarnos a enfrentar esas otras dos soterradas formas de muerte que son l. a. desidia y el olvido.

By Andrés Ehrenhaus

ISBN-10: 8415996381

ISBN-13: 9788415996385

Diecinueve jugarretas de palabras que despedazan los angeles realidad y restauran los angeles mejor literatura. El obús gerundio que da título a este volumen de Andrés Ehrenhaus, Un obús cayendo despedaza, es el preludio del juego sarcástico y merciless de sus historias.

«Uno busca lleno de esperanzas el camino que los sueños prometieron a sus ansias», rezan los primeros versos de un famoso tango, pero las ansias nos despedazan. Contra un paisaje anodino impacta el obús gerundio cargado de vocablos feroces. Una metralla de andylogismos se precipita sobre títeres y cabezas dislocando l. a. apacible textura de los hechos para ponerlos en de guerra contra ellos mismos.

Aquí rompen a hablar individuos que donan su cuerpo a l. a. ciencia si los devotos del River no les tocan las pelotas o visitan un cementerio judío donde habita el cadáver de un señor llamado Adolf Hitler o cambian con ahínco de taxis para llegar puntualmente a un delirio nocturno o se toman el balón por su manos cuando arbitran partidos de fútbol o… Los diecinueve relatos de este proyectil dan lugar al tratado de balística literaria más certero, más piadoso y más diabólico.
