Overview

"Onda corta, la delirante obra, de prosa exigente y magnética, de Pablo Helguera, un performance literario propio de tales formas de hablar -a la vez insomnes, impredecibles y enteramente dedicadas a la exaltación idiosincrática de sujetos desenfrenados y expuestos [...] Onda corta crea ensamblajes improbables en escenas de transmutaciones materiales y metafóricas. La posibilidad de cualquier representación estable se esfuma debido a un grupo de sujetos, animados e inanimados, dedicados al gesto calculado o accidental."

Roberto Tejada, del prólogo

Veo tres lunas y dos soles, veo a Pablo Helguera soñando el vibro temblante de la frecuencia viva, sintonía de la luz en el polvo. Veo el espejo del silencio, el infinito en un cuadrito. El es no es de la historia, porque el "apagón puede radicar en el cerebro de uno". Veo al niño imaginando las ondas que cruzan el espacio "para entrar dentro de la radio iluminada." Lo veo esperando que "el afilador camine por una cuerda floja desde Tlalnepantla hasta Brooklyn." "Mira", dice, "este bodegón hecho de interludios" mientras la radio transmite las últimas palabras de Lao Tsé" y "algo se escucha desde lejos sugiriendo una transmisión de la verdad de las cosas por cortesía de un país probablemente inexistente." ¡Que viva el misterio de la Onda Corta en el prodigioso compendio de "memorias adquiridas antes de nacer" de Pablo Helguera.
