9788433971654: Los culpables (Narrativas Hispanicas) (Spanish Edition)

Los culpables ofrece una brillante reflexion sobre las posibilidades de la voz hablada. Los seis cuentos y la nouvelle que integran este volumen han sido escritos en primera persona. A traves de ellos, el escritor busca explorar la forma en que alguien podria hablar en un momento critico y revelador. Un mariachi harto de su exito folklorico, un futbolista al borde del retiro, un guionista que edita con tijeras para rebanar pollos, un limpiador de ventanas suspendido en un andamio, un viajero que adopta una iguana y un anfitrion convencido de que los mexicanos solo matan a sus amigos, cuentan lo que no quieren contar. Si la confesion religiosa busca descargar la culpa a traves de revelaciones, Villoro logra el procedimiento opuesto: sus personajes se incriminan por lo que dicen para disculparse, se ponen en tela de juicio. Con altas dosis de humor, punteria verbal y tension dramatica, Juan Villoro registra la excepcional elocuencia de quienes, para librarse de la verdad que los asedia, se vuelven culpables de literatura. / The Guilty offers a brilliant reflection on the possibilities of the spoken word. The six stories and the novella that make up this volume have been written in the first person. A mariachi who is tired of his folkloric success, a window cleaner hanging from scaffolding, and traveller who adopts an iguana tell the stories they do not want to tell. With a high dose of humour, verbal precision and dramatic tension, Villoro is the voice of those who become guilty of literature in order to free themselves from the truth which pursues them.
