Overview

A porn actor and actress escape their past lives in a black Chrysler Imperial along with the woman’s young daughter, driving beneath an inclement sun on a series of identical roads and past inhospitable landscapes. Each one of them narrates their flight to nowhere, but it is a fourth voice—that of a documentary filmmaker fascinated by this story—that communicates just how much of those three characters can exist within each person. In this magnetic novel the past is a nebulous territory from which there is no escape, and although the journey can turn the most impersonal locations—cafeterias, hotels, laundromats—into special places full of meaning, the weight of what has been experienced and of what has been left behind seems to continue condemning the characters to the feeling of being intruders everywhere they go.

 

Un actor y una actriz de cine porno huyen de sus vidas pasadas en un Chrysler Imperial negro junto a la pequeña hija de la mujer, conduciendo bajo un sol inclemente por carreteras siempre iguales y por paisajes inhóspitos. Cada uno de ellos narra esa huida hacia ninguna parte, pero es otra cuarta voz—la de un director de documentales fascinado por esta historia—la que comunica cuánto puede haber de esos tres personajes solitarios en cada persona. En esta magnética novela el pasado es un territorio nebuloso del cual no se puede escapar, y a pesar de que el viaje logra convertir los locales más impersonales—cafeterías, hoteles, lavanderías—en lugares particulares y llenos de sentido, el peso de lo vivido y de lo abandonado parece seguir condenando a los personajes a la sensación de ser intrusos en todas partes.
