Item description for La Rambla paralela (Spanish Edition) by Fernando Vallejo...

A novel in which the past and the present collide in death. In his desperation to rescue what only exists in his memory after death, the traveling corpse that narrates the story takes us by the hand through a warm Barcelona that sometimes is Colombia and sometimes Mexico. Vallejo is an excellent narrator who pulls the readers from one phrase to the next leaving them breathless. In this uncontrollable narration beats the truth and the strength of a poet. In spite of the rage and fury portrayed, this story has a nostalgic tenderness.

Description in spanish: Vivo de verdad no est nadie, sas son ilusiones de los tontos. Da con da nos estamos muriendo todos de a poquito. Vivir es morirse. Y morirse, en mi modesta opinin, no es ms que acabarse de morir.

Novela en que el pasado y el presente se funden en el futuro de la muerte, La Rambla paralela palpita con el pulso de un relato alucinado. En su desesperacin por rescatar lo que slo existe en su memoria de muerto, el cadver ambulante que la cuenta nos lleva de la mano por una Barcelona abrasada en el calor que a veces es Medelln y a veces Mxico. Vallejo es un excelente narrador que nos arrastra de una frase a otra cortndonos el aliento. Para l no existen las leyes del tiempo y el espacio, y en esta incontenible narracin palpitan la verdad y la fuerza de un poeta de voz honda e inolvidable. A pesar de su rabia y su furia, este libro tiene una ternura nostlgica que nos deja entrever que aunque el paraso alguna vez existi ya lo hemos perdido para siempre.

La obra de Fernando Vallejo continuar gritando improperios con la certeza de quien sabe que ya no es posible sumar ms horror al horror. Una lcida fuerza literaria.
