El triunfo (Narrativas Hispanicas) (Spanish Edition) - download pdf or read online

By Francisco Casavella

Para Ignacio Losada, los sucesivos y descacharrantes reencuentros con Carlos, su hermano mayor, un jugador yeyé en las últimas, supondrán bastante más que el ejercicio de l. a. piedad con alguien acosado, simultáneamente, por los angeles sed metafísica y un ejército de matones; una transferencia de gestos y culpas le enfrentará a l. a. fragilidad de sus entusiasmos y al presagio constante de l. a. tragedia, para depositarle bruscamente en los demasiado ciertos páramos de l. a. edad adulta. Entre trepidantes aventuras en el bajo mundo barcelonés, reservados dudosos y tugurios, ardides, fugas y envites, bajo l. a. invocación de Chester Winchester, el enano español que se suicidó en Las Vegas tras el logro de un imposible en l. a. mítica del jugador, los dos hermanos rendirán tributo al azar y al cálculo, que han hecho de ellos lo que son y lo que serán en una ciudad en los angeles que, en palabras de Alfonso Costafreda, «todo temor mío encuentra aquí su nombre».

Una espléndida e inquietante novela con l. a. que Francisco Casavella confirmaba plenamente las esperanzas suscitadas por El triunfo, su celebrada ópera prima; una pieza tan excitante como equilibrada, llena de giros sorprendentes y mecanismos cinematográficos, erigida sobre un subtexto de mentiras, imposturas, ficciones, falacias. Con encendida viveza y estimulante variedad de registros, he aquí una de las obras más redondas de un autor que dejaba con ella de ser promesa para convertirse en realidad palpable, que el paso de los años no ha hecho más que ratificar. «Pocos entre los nuevos narradores como Francisco Casavella parecen tener tanto que contar y tantas ganas y capacidad de hacerlo. Se confirma su creciente dominio del lenguaje y de los recursos narrativos, además de sus habilidades para mantener al lector en suspenso hasta l. a. última página. Un mundo descrito con nerviosas y atinadas pinceladas, con un estilo literario cuidado, con cierto humor sardónico, con un ritmo que engancha como una voz hipnótica» (Ignacio Vidal-Folch, Qué Leer). «Ratifica plenamente las expectativas alentadas por El triunfo. Un decidido paso adelante en l. a. esmerada elaboración de una prosa poética muy cuidada en l. a. precisión de su sintaxis, en l. a. rapidez de sus diálogos y en l. a. eficacia de su ritmo narrativo emparentado con técnicas cinematográficas» (Ángel Basanta, ABC).
