Item description for Los nombres del aire/ The names of the air (Alfaguara) (Spanish Edition) by Alberto Ruy Sanchez...

Una novela construida como un espacio seductor, envolvente, lleno de placeres minuciosos. Una exploracin de la sensibilidad deseante de las mujeres. As como su novela hermana, En los labios del agua, explora el deseo fugaz de los hombres. Ambas se sitan en la ciudad imaginaria de Mogador. El espacio donde se tejen los deseos, donde los cuerpos voraces se transforman imaginariamente, donde todo nos recuerda la profunda vena arbigoandaluza de nuestra cultura, como una cicatriz olvidada de nuestro sexo.

Por esta novela, escrita con una prosa intensa y cercana a la poesa, Alberto Ruy Snchez recibi el Premio Xavier Villaurrutia.

Esta edicin incluye caligrafas del artista de Marruecos Hassan Massoudy.

more than reading  Apr 8, 2000
When I went into the pages of this book I discovered a new way of understanding my senses and my desires. As important as learning how to read, through the lenses of a poetic an sensous adventure. Telling us the story of Fatma, in the imaginary and walled city of Mogador, this book opens a question about women's desire that only each one of us, women readers, can answer. This is a masterpiece of subtility, a book to share with the dearest persons, a tale to read and read again. I found an english translation of this book as Mogador, published in San Francisco by City Lights. The sequel's title of Los nombres del aire is En los labios del agua. I could not find an english translation. Anyway, both books exists in french. Les visages de l'air, and Les levres de l'eau. An amazing experience for the senses more than a text to read.
