About this item

Existe un territorio difícil entre el cuento y la novela al que ni siquiera se le puede dar nombre. Jorge Volpi demuestra con estas tres historias que es uno de los maestros en ese género impreciso del relato de largo aliento.Entre la novela y el cuento existe un territorio difícil de nombrar, difuso, híbrido. Jorge Volpi lo ha denominado "media distancia", género que, en palabras del autor, excede los límites del cuento al tiempo que mantiene una drástica concentración del material narrativo frente a la ausencia de límites de la novela.Este volumen reúne tres narraciones de media distancia: "A pesar del oscuro silencio", "Días de ira" y "El juego del apocalipsis", precedidas del ensayo "Elogio de la media distancia", donde Volpi realiza una cartografía de este género único que combina la "paciencia de novelista con la agilidad del cuentacuentos"."Un volumen revelador y emblemático" -Arturo García Ramos, ABC-ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

There is a difficult space between short story and novel that can hardly be named. With these three stories, Jorge Volpi shows that he is one of the masters of this ambiguous genre of “long story.”


Between a novel and a short story there is a space that is difficult to name; vague, hybrid. Jorge Volpi has called it “mid-range,” a genre that, in the words of the author, exceeds the limits of a short story while maintaining a drastic concentration of narrative material while lacking the limits of a novel. This volume compiles three mid-range tales:“Despite the Dark Silence”,“Days of Wrath” and “The Apocalypse Game” preceded by the essay “Praise For the Mid-Range” in which Volpi maps out this unique genre that combines the “patience of a novelist with the agility of a storyteller.”
