about this item

Cuando terminé de escribir Al final del periférico descubrí que después de ir y venir por la literatura había logrado encontrar una voz que uniera memoria y libertad de escritura, con el desasosiego propio del vivir.

Uno siempre es niño y después se muere, me convenzo a mí mismo. Y ahora descubro que intentaba —acaso de manera inconsciente— reunir en una obra todo el sentido y la emoción de haber vivido durante un instante, y retener, por medio de la literatura, aquel momento en la memoria. No he guardado nada bajo la cama y si esta novela, que pasó sobre de mí como un relámpago, posee alguna virtud o valor es la de reconocer que la vida sucede en buena medida sin nuestra intervención. Los adolescentes que se congregaron al final del periférico a mediados de los años setenta, mis amigos, acompañados de su gracia, inocencia y crueldad naturales ríen y se preguntan: “Willy, ¿un escritor? ¿Qué carajos es eso?”.

— Guillermo Fadanelli
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION


When I finished writing At the End of the Peripheral Road, I realized that after going back and forth with literature, I had finally found a voice that united memory and the freedom to write, while having my own uneasiness of living. Now I realize that, subconsciously, I was trying to compile in one work, the emotions of having lived for one instant; and use literature to help me capture that feeling forever. If nothing else, there is one virtue that I hope everyone sees in this novel, and that is to help the readers realize that life happens mostly without any intervention on our part. Those teenagers that gathered at the end of the peripheral road in the mid seventies, my friends, now laugh with a sort of innocence and ask: Willy, a writer? What is that? — Guillermo Fadanelli
