By Jorge Benítez,Fede Durán,Carlos Robles

Reservoir Books cumple dieciocho años y lo celebra con este sorprendente volumen de relatos sobre l. a. mayoría de edad, escritos hace dieciocho años por nueve autores que por entonces tenían alrededor de dieciocho.

«Pensó que cumplir dieciocho tenía más de violento que de ensoñador: estás obligada a ser, a demostrar para qué sirves, l. a. catapulta te escupe pero no hay colchón en el que caer

Aquí se dan cita nueve autores nacidos entre 1976 y 1981 a sendas orillas del Atlántico. Podríamos decir que son pseudo inéditos; o al revés, que tienen poca obra publicada. Son cinco magníficas escritoras, cuatro magníficos narradores. Voces maduras, quizá de floración tardía. Son nuestros nueve viejísimos cuentistas.

Hace dieciocho años, cuando nació Reservoir Books, tenían alrededor de dieciocho. Y sobre eso escriben precisamente: l. a. augurada libertad, los angeles onda expansiva de los angeles postadolescencia, sus daños colaterales. Son miradas nostálgicas, agridulces, satíricas, elegíacas... realizadas desde el ecuador de l. a. segunda edad, cuando se acerca l. a. cuarentena, quizá bajo amenaza de próximos cambios vitales.

En 1998 una aguerrida colección de libros llegó a las estanterías más salvajes: Reservoir Books. Hizo las delicias de los jóvenes lectores que buscaban sangre nueva, emociones afiladas, libros fascinantes. Al poco, se abrió una subcolección de antologías cuyas filas engrosaban escritores de presente y futuro: After Hours (1999), Invasores de Marte (2000), Franquismo Pop (2001), Cuba y el día después (2001). A su legado simbólico y al espíritu unique de Reservoir Books, tan hijo de los noventa, queremos rendir homenaje con este volumen, una suerte de nuevo almanaque para los viejos tiempos.

Download Estoy cansado de mí: y otros cuentos (Spanish Edition) by Sebastián Wainraich PDF

By Sebastián Wainraich

Esta es l. a. reedición del primer libro de Sebastián Wainraich, donde
encontramos como en «Ser feliz me da vergüenza» lo mejor de sus relatos
mordaces, inteligentes y auténticos.

Los personajes que crea Sebastián Wainraich generan risa por
identificación, porque sabe observar como nadie esos detalles cotidianos
que pasan inadvertidos y deberían ser extraordinarios. Después de todo,
de eso se trata el humor. Hombres a los que les cuesta disfrutar, que se
someten a situaciones denigrantes con tal de ganarse una chica. Y este
es justo el punto que recorre «Estoy cansado de mí». Hombres que piensan
demasiado, neuróticos, amigueros, antihéroes, futboleros, inseguros y
ellas: las mujeres que están en todos los cuentos. Los diálogos
internos, los angeles angustia, l. a. muerte, los hijos, el analista y los sueños:
«Había soñado que me contrataban para jugar una carrera de embolsados
contra Hitler. Si él ganaba, yo debía dejarme bigotes como los suyos el
resto de mi vida. Si ganaba yo, él, por sus propios medios, tenía que
hacerse l. a. circuncisión», cuenta el protagonista del cuento que le da
título a este volumen.
