Overview

Esta es una colección de 24 relatos cuyo género, en principio, podría denominarse cuento, pero que en rigor también experimentan con la crónica, la fábula, la parábola, la reseña y la nota periodística. El ánimo de la prosa es humorístico, ácido e inclemente; algunas piezas narrativas, a la antigüita, primero desarman nuestra incredulidad; otras, descaradamente, proponen un mundo tan vuelto al revés que por ello mismo termina siendo el de todos los días. Todas hacen reír, con la certeza de que nos reímos de alguien a quien conocemos y vemos retratado en estas páginas.

Forajidos crediticios, mercachifles robotizados, chantajistas creativos, chicas cuyo atractivo está en el precio, playboys cuya demanda está en la oferta, pacifistas enardecidos, dictadores beatleanos, árboles bolcheviques y guajolotes fundamentalistas: tal es la fauna regular de este libro cuyos capítulos -fábulas retorcidas, parábolas con cuernos- desarman sistemáticamente nuestra incredulidad, a través de un lenguaje en esteroides plagado de un sentido del sarcasmo que al propio tiempo duele y gratifica: humor negro en su tinta, por el autor de Diablo Guardián.

Meet the Author

Xavier Velasco es nativo de San Ángel, al sur de la Ciudad de México. Desde temprana edad ejerce la escritura como un vicio secreto, que más tarde le convenció de abandonar las carreras de Ciencias Políticas y Literatura, y así darse a abrazar formas de vida que lo han llevado del motociclismo al paracaidismo, de la escritura rockera a la crónica noctámbula, de la publicidad al Infierno y del Infierno a la novela. Sus narraciones y crónicas han aparecido en diversos periódicos, revistas y suplementos culturales. Ha publicado Una banda nombrada Caifanes (ensayo, 1990), Cecilia (novela, 1994), Luna llena en las rocas. Crónicas de antronautas y licántropos (2000) y Diablo Guardián (Premio de Novela Alfaguara 2003). Desde 1997, codifica personalmente el sitio web http://www.fullmoontonic.com.
