Este que ves by Xavier Velasco

Xavier Velasco, Premio Alfaguara 2003 con Diablo guardián, regresa a la literatura con la «aventura kamikaze» de contar su infancia y no inventarla.

«El de la pintura es un niño desesperado. Necesita salvarse y no imagina de qué. Quiere salir de ahí, no sabe cómo.»

Ser niño es entender que el que lleva al infierno es un camino corto. Se llega sin saber, se escapa sin pensar, se vuelve sin querer.

El niño de esta historia se resiste a contarla. Antes que darle un sitio en su memoria, preferiría darle sepultura. Cuando menos lo espera, ya está inmerso en un juego trepidante que le permite todo... menos dejar morir una historia. Se trata de salvarla, ése es el juego.

No es que la infancia sea en sí difícil, sino que sus fantasmas resultan invencibles y sus muros -horror- inexpugnables. En un proceso inverso al exorcismo, el autor se transforma en personaje, el retrato en fantasma, la cicatriz en tinta: "Se escribe, igual que se ama o que se vive, porque no queda más alternativa, ni se ve escapatoria tolerable."

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The one in the painting is a desperate boy. He needs to save himself and doesn’t know of what. He wants to get out but doesn’t know how.” To be a kid is to understand that the road to hell is a short one. One arrives there without knowing, one escapes without thinking, one comes back without meaning to. It is not that childhood is hard, but rather that childhood phantoms are invincible. The boy of this story refuses to tell it. He allows himself everything... except to let the story die. 9707708107 9786071116987 La edad de la punzada An Uncomfortable Age Fiction Velasco, Xavier Trade Paper $19.99 Alfaguara 6” x 9½” 408 02/01/2012 EAN Esta es la historia del peor alumno del colegio. Corrección: de la historia del colegio. Con casi catorce años, unos cuantos apestados sociales por amigos y el boletín de calificaciones constelado de círculos rojos, nuestro protagonista sobrevive a un instituto sólo-para-varones soñando a toda hora en esas vecinitas a las que nunca ha osado saludar. Si otros inadaptados no saben lo que quieren, él lo tiene tan claro como su timidez: una moto y una chamarra negra. Decidido a contradecir al retrato embustero del niño con su afgano que preside la sala de su casa, el narrador busca la mejor fórmula para fabricar pólvora, combate a sus vecinos con un rifle de diábolos y bombas incendiarias, roba huesos en sus visitas al panteón, acaba con los nervios de dos padres querúbicos y de paso se deja enardecer por toda suerte de antojos secretos. Esta novela cuenta la historia de una de esas adolescencias en picada donde todo parece salir mal, en medio de una prisa por vivir que invita a acelerar y cerrar los ojos, hasta que cualquier día se despierta en lo hondo de un auténtico infierno para adultos: allí donde la risa es un mero recurso de sobrevivencia. Almost fourteen years old, with a bunch of social pariahs for friends, and a score card filled with red blots, our hero endures his days at an all-boy school dreaming of his pretty little neighbors—whom, needless to say, he hasn’t
