Item description for Ella, maldita alma by Manuel Rivas...

The protagonist of each of the stories in this collection is the soul in one of its various guises: a loaf of bread, a parrot, a swarm of bees, and an electric guitar. The stories are a current, simple, ironic, and surprising response to the eternal search for the location of the soul.

Description in Spanish:

Puede refugiarse el alma en una barra de pan? O tener la forma de una guitarra elctrica llamada Sirena en manos de un joven pescador?

Desde la antigedad, la bsqueda ms intensa del ser humano es la del lugar donde habita el alma. He aqu una respuesta actual, sencilla, irnica y sorprendente a ese gran enigma histrico. El resultado de un duro viaje de ida y vuelta a las entraas.

Ella maldita alma es una obra intimista que acaba abrindose al mundo como un Big Bang. Libro de relatos o novela polifnica, la escritura va localizando almas. Y sus formas son tan asombrosas como humildes: un enjambre de abejas, el corcho de una botella de alcohlico, un loro anarquista, un mueco de ventrlocuo que se enamora y habla francs a las campesinas: "Merci dame, la plus belle".

Despus de Qu me quieres amor? (Premio Nacional de Narrativa 1996) y de El lpiz del carpintero (Premio de la Crtica 1998), Manuel Rivas vuelve con una obra dura y melanclica, pero donde la vida aletea y emerge como un maravilloso don.
