9788433977205: El secreto del mal (Spanish Edition) (Coleccion Compactos)

Este volumen viene a ser el torso o la armadura inevitablemente incompleta del que iba a ser el cuarto libro de relatos de Roberto Bolano. El punado de piezas y de esbozos narrativos aqui reunidos tiene por base un archivo de texto muy tardio en el que Bolano estuvo trabajando hasta poco antes de su muerte. A el se han agregado otros cuentos y fragmentos espigados entre el abundante material almacenado en el ordenador del escritor, minuciosamente rastreado por Ignacio Echevarria. El titulo que engloba el conjunto es el mismo que el de un cuento que comienza asi: «Este cuento es muy simple aunque hubiera podido ser muy complicado. Tambien: es un cuento inconcluso, porque este tipo de historias no tienen un final.» Palabras que ilustran el caracter que en general comparten todas estas piezas, acerca de las cuales escribe Echevarria: «La obra entera de Roberto Bolano permenece suspendida sobre los abismos a los que no teme asomarse. Es toda su narrativa, y no solo El secreto del mal, la que parece regida por una poetica de inconclusion. En ella, la irrupcion del horror determina, se diria, la interrupcion del relato; o tal vez ocurre al contrario: es la interrupcion del relato la que sugiere al lector la inminencia del horror.» / This volume is the torso (or the inevitably incomplete suit of armour) of what was going to be the fourth book of stories from Roberto Bolaño. The fistful of bits and pieces of stories that are brought together here originate from an archive of texts from quite late on in his life, which Bolaño was working on until just before his death. To these have been added other stories and closely examined fragments from among the abundant material storied on the writers computer, meticulously trawled through by Ignacio Echevarria.
