About this item

¿Cuántas existencias caben en una sola vida? Ante la ventana de una casa que está a punto de abandonar, un joven se hace esta pregunta. Sabe que se halla en una encrucijada y que frente a él se despliegan dos trayectos posibles: el amor o la muerte, el azar o la decisión, fluir o destruir. En la sinuosa respuesta a su duda, su casa será habitada por seis fantasmas, seis escritores que buscaron en México, sin más método que el exceso, una idea o un espejismo absoluto: André Bretón, B. Traven, William Burroughs, Malcolm Lowry, Jane Bowles y Alexander von Humboldt.En 42 metros cuadrados, todo objeto, toda persona, se convierte en un obstá******, pero recorrer su estrechez nos va entrenando para nuestra propia insuficiencia. En esta novela cronicada —homenaje y parodia de la vida de los santos o de los césares—, Fabrizio Mejía Madrid nos recuerda que vivir en mudanza permanente puede ser tan sólo una forma de inmovilidad. Pase usted: está en su casa.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONA novel that reflects on love and its demise, independent women, and the stories of the writers who came to Mexico between 1914 and 1974. This novel begins with the narrator's discovery that his wife has left him. In their apartment he finds emptiness, reminiscences and bookish memories that lead him to reflect on his feelings of abandonment. The vacant spaces of the apartment remind him of moments in his married life, as well as characters from the literary history that took place in similar domestic spaces: from the dining room where William Burroughs accidentally killed his wife to the dining room where Leon Trotsky, André Bretón, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo gathered amid discussions and sexual intrigue.
