Download Una puta albina colgada del brazo de Francisco Umbral by Diego Medrano PDF

By Diego Medrano

Un escritor que viene a Madrid tras los pasos de Francisco Umbral y descubre l. a. miseria, l. a. locura y el enigma que exige los angeles vida literaria.

La trayectoria literaria de David Medrano y su propia inspiration de l. a. literatura le lleva a alinearse con monstruos como Borges, Kafka, Nietzsche y, por supuesto, el propio Francisco Umbral. Medrano es un escritor overall, un amanuense para el que l. a. escritura es fruto de un esfuerzo continuo, de un compromiso con el lenguaje que reclama l. a. propia vida del escritor, no es un pasatiempo, esta escritura overall demanda también una dedicación a todos los géneros literarios e incluso una mezcla de los mismos en las obras.

Fruto de este compromiso sagrado nace Una puta albina colgada del brazo de Francisco Umbral, una mixtura compuesta de narrativa, reportaje y crítica literaria. Samuel Lamata, protagonista y trasunto del propio Medrano, llega a Madrid siguiendo los pasos de su admirado Francisco Umbral, se instala en una posada depressing de l. a. Calle Hortaleza y comienza a escribir una novela eternamente postergada, en l. a. librería Pérez Galdós conoce a Enrique Tarazona, editor que promete publicar su novela y Cicerone mediante el que conocerá a Francisco Umbral y a Maruja Lapoint, una albina excesiva y fronteriza. l. a. relación de los personajes entre sí, y de estos con los angeles literatura, trenza un relato de calidad y belleza destructora.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

• l. a. novela está llena de golpes de efecto y giros, de drama, de ironía y del mejor sarcasmo, de comedia y de imágenes atractivas y sugerentes.
• los angeles obra es un auténtico ejercicio de estilo y l. a. historia es trasladada hasta nosotros a través de un discurso cuidado y bello.
• El tema de los angeles literatura y el oficio de escribir entronca directamente el libro en una tradición a los angeles que pertenecen Vila-Matas, José María Merino o Paul Auster.
• Los personajes están perfectamente equilibrados e, incluso en el propio Umbral, se llega a desconocer dónde están las fronteras entre character y personaje literario.

Una novela que nos conduce por una triple búsqueda: l. a. de Francisco Umbral, l. a. de Maruja Lapoint y l. a. de Samuel Lamata que busca a los anteriores para no buscarse a sí mismo. l. a. novela de un autor elogiado por Pere Gimferrer, Antonio Gamoneda o Luis Antonio de Villena.

“La escritora Eugenia Rico, que presentó los angeles novela,sostiene que ésta puede ser un estudio crítico de l. a. obra de Umbral, un Umbral que, personalmente, aparece en los angeles novela como un dandi vulnerable.” (El Mundo, Julio 2008)

“Una puta albina colgada del brazo de Francisco Umbral (Ed. Nowtilus) es un buen libro. Es distinto a todo lo que se publica, no está exento de polémica, cuenta con una narrativa fluida y desde los angeles más absoluta sordidez, es adictivo.” (Revista electronic Experpento)

“Lo que me ha atraído e interesado más son los aspectos más o menos novedosos, metaliterarios, descriptivos o poéticos y esa mezcla entre realidad y ficción en los angeles que resulta difícil saber qué cosas han nacido y cuáles no de l. a. imaginación del autor.”
(Web Anika entre libros)

“El nombre de Diego Medrano, a partir de esta novela hermosa y loca como todo lo imposible, a partir de este homenaje, de este elogio de l. a. literatura vívida y vivida, quedará para siempre unido al de esa metáfora que ahora es Francisco Umbral." (Web del escritor Luis Artigue)
