Download e-book for kindle: Salchichas vienesas y otras ficciones (Spanish Edition) by Antonio Orlando Rodríguez

By Antonio Orlando Rodríguez

El autor de Chiquita (Premio Alfaguara de Novela) reúne en ­Salchichas vienesas y otras ficciones una selección de su narrativa breve que permite apreciar otra vertiente de su producción literaria. En estos relatos de Antonio Orlando Rodríguez, los angeles fantasía, el absurdo y el humor son utilizados como instrumentos para examinar los angeles realidad desde una perspectiva common. Los ritos de las relaciones sociales, l. a. cosificación de las emociones y los pequeños y grandes conflictos cotidianos del individuo contemporáneo son abordados a través de situaciones sorprendentes, con l. a. elegancia formal y l. a. capacidad de cautivar al lector que lo caracterizan como creador.
Convencido de que “lo serio no tiene que ser sinónimo de aburrido”, en esta veintena de ficciones el escritor cubano explora, con inusual libertad y desenfado, los territorios de los angeles parábola y los angeles parodia, del cuento al estilo de Las mil y una noches, el erotismo y el monólogo concebido como un striptease inside. Sus historias pueden resultar insólitas o desconcertantes, pero más de un lector se reconocerá en los personajes y descubrirá en ellas una penetrante aproximación a sus circunstancias y preocupaciones.
“Pienso que es una decisión muy saludable que Antonio Orlando Rodríguez haya recopilado en un volumen sus cuentos, hasta ahora dispersos en libros hace mucho tiempo agotados y en revistas. Pese a haber sido escritos de manera independiente y a lo largo de varios años, al tener ahora los angeles posibilidad de leerlos todos juntos adquieren el carácter de una obra continuada y orgánica. Estoy seguro además de que l. a. lectura de l. a. presente compilación ha de significar para unos cuantos el descubrimiento de un narrador de historias nato y un creador con un imaginario ­novedoso y personal”.

By Toshiyuki Horie,Anne Bayard-Sakai

ISBN-10: 2070137333

ISBN-13: 9782070137336

Un bowling doit fermer ses portes après vingt ans d'existence difficile, et le dernier jour ne fait pas exception à los angeles règle : aucun buyer à l'horizon. Mais un peu après neuf heures du soir, un couple se présente, et le propriétaire décide de leur offrir los angeles partie. En les regardant jouer, il se perd dans ses souvenirs, Monsieur large, los angeles foule qui se pressait au bord des pistes, sa femme, morte depuis quelques années déjà...

Tout comme cette première nouvelle, les six autres récits du recueil se situent autour d'une petite station de montagne, et évoquent l'existence tranquille de ses habitants. Une école de food, une usine d'emballages en carton, un magasin de disques ou un cours privé de calligraphie sont autant de lieux dans lesquels évoluent ces vies apparemment sans histoires, qui dissimulent leurs drames secrets and techniques.

Toshiyuki Horie excelle à dépeindre l. a. petite communauté humaine de cette ville un peu démodée, à l'écart de l'agitation du Japon moderne. L'importance que ses récits accordent au détail et los angeles subtilité avec laquelle il scrute les regrets ou les doutes de ses personnages confèrent une tonalité mélancolique et une grande harmonie à l'ensemble. D'une touche, toutes les nouvelles s'interconnectent et donnent ainsi vie à cette cité nommée le Marais des Neiges.
