Reviews - What do customers think about Amores Imperfectos (Spanish Edition)?

Excelente introducción a la obra de Paz Soldán  Feb 22, 2005
Amores imperfectos es el primer libro de Edmundo Paz Soldán que leo. Con varios títulos de novelas y cuentos ya publicados, este autor boliviano de relevancia internacional, hace de ésta colección de relatos una excelente carta de presentación para quien recién se inicia en su obra.

Desde los más breves hasta los más extensos, los veintitrés relatos incluídos están atados con la hebra del tema universal del amor, pero no el sufrido, el empalagoso o el obligado a conducir a la felicidad de los involucrados, y sí del amor elevado a la obsesión que genera inesperadas volteretas.

La fragilidad humana con la que Paz Soldán inyecta a muchos de sus personajes es la encargada de deshacer, en ocasiones trágicas, cómicas y en otras sin sentido concluyente, lo que podrían ser y afortunadamente no son, desenlaces predecibles a-la-Hollywood.

En casi todos los cuentos el autor presenta elementos actuales que apoyan la familiaridad y cotidianidad de su narrativa. Abundan las menciones de marcas comerciales, lugares conocidos, términos tecnológicos y de cultura popular, todos como recursos de actualidad que alejan sus historias del mundo inverosímil y las conducen hacia el sendero de lo posible.

Este libro es uno de esos que como propiedad tienen, sin ser antología, introducir al lector a un autor refrescante y talentoso. Ciertamente ha logrado ese efecto en mí, pues me ha conducido a leer a Desencuentros, su libro más reciente. De ahí en adelante, quién sabe: El delirio de Turing, Río Fugitivo, Sueños Digitales...
