Item description for La mano del fuego/ The Fire's Hand (Spanish Edition) by Alberto Ruy Sanchez...

Ruy Sanchez returns to Mogador in this story about the anti-love affair, and the ludicrous search for the erotic. Despite the multiple faces of desire, eroticism is only an illusion. It exists like a second skin that burns and comes alive like a sleepwalker. It lives for the adventure of playing with fire. A frustrated editor of an erotic magazine is hell bent on writing about the Arab Kama Sutras; but it appears that life is also hell bent on showing him how wrong he is.

Description in Spanish: Cuantas caras tiene un hombre hablando del deseo? Cuantas manos? Es posible hablar del fuego desde el fuego? El erotismo es una ilusion. Existe como fantasma escrito en el cuerpo. En la piel llevamos ese destino ardiente y brota como un ser sonambulo. Su aventura es querer tocar el fuego, sonar despierto, asombrarse, tratar de comprender, equivocarse, acariciar y convertirse en el fuego que esta tocando. Vivir una breve y equivoca epica del tacto. El editor de la revista erotica El jardin perfumado (especie de Playboy con menos rubias y mas costumbres amorosas de otros pueblos) odia eso que se clasifica como literatura erotica y detesta ser considerado autor de ese genero. Trata de escribir sobre los Kama Sutras arabes. Pero la vida viene a interrumpirlo, a trastornarlo y demostrarle cada vez que esta equivocado. Un alfarero obsesivo piensa su oficio como una forma de Kama Sutra. Las consecuencias nos hacen entrar con el al horno de la vida. Y de la muerte. Un libro de anti-aventuras amorosas en forma de mano, de amuleto, de busqueda disparatada del erotismo. Afirmacion de la sensualidad y la duda.
