By Mario Bellatin

ISBN-13: 9789681914417

Este libro reúne parte de los angeles narrativa de Mario Ballatin.

De Mario Bellatin, ganador del del Premio Xavier Villaurrutia, el Barbara Gittings Literature Award y el Antonin Artaud 2012.

La mejor puerta de entrada al universo Bellatin.

Alfaguara recupera una parte esencial de los angeles narrativa de Bellatin en esta primera parte de su Obra reunida: Salón de belleza, Efecto invernadero, Canon perpetuo, Damas chinas, El jardín de los angeles señora Murakami, Bola negra, Shiki Nagaoka: una nariz de ficción, La mirada del pájaro transparente, Jacobo el mutante, Perros héroes, Flores los angeles escuela del dolor humano de Sechuán, Underwood portátil: modelo 1915, Los fantasmas del masajista y La biografía ilustrada de Mishima (ambos incluidos en La clase muerta). Estos textos constituyen l. a. mejor manera de abordar l. a. obra de un autor muy singular y considerado unode los más importantes renovadores del género narrativo.

Para Mario Bellatin, los angeles escritura es una condición que no tiene #más remedio que soportar#. De ahí que creara estas historias pobladas de personajes imperfectos, que transcurren en tiempos y lugares indeterminados, armadas como puzles, creadas mediante un proceso en cierto modo inconsciente.

Un peluquero da refugio en su salón de belleza a los enfermos de una extraña peste que invade l. a. ciudad, pero al parecer sin motivos filantrópicos; un fármaco defectuoso origina malformaciones masivas en una generación de recién nacidos; un escritor investiga sobre prácticas sexuales alternativas...

Lo que ha dicho los angeles crítica:

#Un travieso escritor con un ojo y un oído especiales a l. a. hora de captar lo inusual (...) Una de las principales voces en el ámbito de los angeles ficción experimental en español#. -Larry Rohter, The ny Times.

#Insólito heredero de Kawabata y Tanizaki, Bellatin sabe que las palabras valen tanto como los silencios. Sus libros logran un máximo de intensidad con un mínimo de recursos. Con elegante parquedad, compone historias que requieren de pocos adjetivos para imantar a sus lectores#. -Juan Villoro.

#Todos los textos de Mario Bellatin son de una rareza minuciosa, erudita y elaborada... Como si buscase los límites de los angeles literatura y de sus interpretaciones, no de una forma teórica y segura sino a través de los angeles fantasía imaginativa de su trabajo#. -Mathieu Lindon, Libération.

#Si algún nombre hay que destacar por l. a. originalidad de sus propuestas es el de Mario Bellatin, cuya obra hemos ido comentando y celebrando. (...) Una escritura que nos fascina tanto por lo que revela como por lo que oculta#. -Juan Antonio Masoliver Ródenas, La Vanguardia.

#La potencia formal de su prosa y l. a. impiedad de su imaginario logran algo más importante que los angeles elegancia, siempre equívoca: comunica el carácter espasmódico de l. a. belleza#. -Nicolás Cabral, Letras Libres.
