Tres bosquejos del mal. Tres narraciones breves cuyo hilo conductor parece ser un mismo hecho: el reflejo alucinado de una realidad vivida o imaginada -- que no es lo mismo, pero es igual.
En Las plegarias del cuerpo, de Eloy Urroz, asistimos a las primigenias experiencias sexuales de un adolescente durante un verano. Se refleja la angustia del ahora, que no necesariamente

Tres novelas cortas de los tres autores más representativos y sinónimos del movimiento de la generación del crack, con tres estilos completamente diferentes, cada una un ejercicio de interpretación muy particular de cada autor sobre el tema eje del mal, donde ya se alcanza a percibir la evolución que irán teniendo cada uno en sus estilos narrativos muy particulares.

I've only actually one of the three novellas collected here--Ignacio Padilla's "Imposibilidad de los cuervos," the one I bought it for. I may read Volpi and Urroz later. "Cuervos" is a kind of precursor, I think, of later Padilla works like "Amphitryon" (in English as "Shadow without a Name") and "Espiral de artilleria". Not as good as those, but good enough. And given the Templars as a part of the plot, I'm sort of surprised it hasn't been translated into English. Those who like Borges should ...more
