Qualcosa di strano (Italian Edition) by Tiziano Rossi

By Tiziano Rossi

Come è noto, anche l. a. realtà quotidiana più ripetitiva e banale può contenere in sé doppifondi e buie nicchie, soprassalti ed estasi. Confidando in una prosa piana e scorrevole (prossima al cosiddetto grado 0 della scrittura), il libro ci racconta proprio questi lati nascosti e queste impennate e dà spazio a una sequela di personaggi che vivono l’inatteso, inquietante o rasserenante che sia: spacciatori di droga che si improvvisano artisti, bambine avventurose che scoprono insoliti angoli di città, poliziotti che si commuovono davanti ai criminali, ragazzi che sfidano los angeles morte o intravedono lampi di beatitudine, anime semplici che patiscono scherzi crudeli, impiegati che mascherano l. a. propria identità... Ma questo mondo vario e talvolta doloroso (davvero minimale?) è guardato e narrato con l’aerea leggerezza di chi ha ben presente los angeles fugacità del nostro esistere.

Velcro y yo (Spanish Edition) by Martín Rejtman

By Martín Rejtman

«Quizá haya que reconocerle a Rejtman el mérito de dar por perdida de antemano los angeles mediación de los críticos y apelar directamente a los angeles inteligencia de los lectores.» C.E. Feiling

Publicado en 1996, es el segundo libro de relatos de Martín Rejtman y supuso una revolución para l. a. literatura argentina, que en aquel momento, como si hubiesen escaseado los clichés, pocos notaron.

Estas historias extraordinarias aún pueden leerse como si hubiesen sido escritas mañana, en tanto los únicos signos del paso del tiempo que se detectan en ellas no le pertenecen al texto sino al mundo que lo rodea («la sospecha de que también los angeles realidad es idiota», como anotara Graciela Speranza).

Al igual que en «Rapado» (1992) y «Literatura y otros cuentos» (2005), brilla aquí l. a. enorme capacidad del autor y cineasta para convertir lo cotidiano en algo asombroso, y viceversa.
