«Muchos críticos han definido estos cuentos míos como un nuevo tipo de ficción científica.

Pero no sólo eso […] Yo quisiera servirme del dato científico como de una carga propulsora para salir de los hábitos de los angeles imaginación y vivir incluso lo cotidiano en los confines más extremos de nuestra experiencia; en cambio me parece que l. a. ficción científica tiende a acercar lo que está lejos, lo que es difícil de imaginar, y que tiende a darle una dimensión realista.»Italo CalvinoEn este libro se reúnen, por primera vez, en un solo volumen, todas las cosmicómicas, relatos en los que Calvino, a partir de 1964, asumió el divertido deber de aligerar y hacer visibles los arduos conceptos de los angeles ciencia contemporánea, llegando a crear un género más próximo a los mitos cosmogónicos que a los angeles ciencia-ficción.

El viento en las hojas (Narrativas hispánicas) (Spanish - download pdf or read online

By J. Á. González Sainz

El sonido del viento que acaricia las hojas es el ritornelo que recorre estos relatos de González Sainz. Y susurra acerca de los angeles vida y l. a. muerte, del inexorable paso del tiempo o el ajuste de las cuentas de una vida, pero también de los angeles sensualidad de los cuerpos y el enigma del deseo. El motivo sonoro puede acompañar el lento caminar de dos ancianos que se enfrentan a l. a. crueldad de un joven de insultante belleza, o asemejarse al siseo de los angeles puerta giratoria de un viejo café, donde unos niños entran y salen, un hombre observa y descifra los angeles secreta belleza de una mujer, y otro anuncia su próxima muerte a sus amigos de toda los angeles vida. O asociarse al goce de una niña que sopla pompas de jabón en el pretil de un puente e ignora a su madre que l. a. mira con los ojos del miedo... Otras veces, lo que trae el viento que agita el follaje es los angeles seductora sonrisa de una vendedora de helados, los vericuetos de l. a. vida conyugal, el sabor a limón del amor. O los angeles inasible imagen de una mujer detrás de un escaparate ante el que uno de los narradores pasa obsesivamente cada día para verla, para contemplar ese cuerpo no sabe si escultórico o quitahípos o quitaaliento. Y para mirar a los que l. a. miran. «Nos precipitamos», reflexiona uno de los narradores del libro, «al abismo de las imágenes y los relatos.» Y es allí donde mirar, imaginar, desear y, cómo no, contar, establecen una fecunda relación, donde el enigmático susurro de hojas y palabras se convierte en ese murmullo ?¿indescifrable?? en el que reverbera el misterio de nuestra condición. Literatura para leer lentamente, para saborear y meditar, para prestar atención desde lo que se cube a lo que se vive y viceversa, literatura para acompañar nuestras vidas con los angeles vida de nuestras palabras hasta allí donde unas y otras declinan, callan. «González Sainz es un narrador excepcional y un maestro del idioma que se prodiga menos de lo que sería deseable» (Jon Juaristi, ABC).
