Item description for Perros heroes (Spanish Edition) by Mario Bellatin...

A man forced to remain immovable for life, prisoner to a wheelchair, tries to impose onto his world the same confinement that he feels. He does it with his Belgian sheepdogs, with his hawk tied to a hanger, with Australian parakeet that he keeps caged, with his nurse, his sister and his mother. Probably also with the reader, who will feel enclosed in a cage that gradually keeps getting smaller and smaller. These stories propose a series of facts as fiction, or perhaps they are real.

Description in Spanish: Un hombre obligado a permanecer toda su vida inmvil ---probablemente es parapljico; en todo caso, est confinado a una silla de ruedas--- trata de someter al mundo a la misma inmovilidad; de hecho, lo consigue con los perros Pastor Belga Malinois de los que es criador, con un halcn amarrado a su percha, con periquitos de Australia que mantiene enjaulados, con su cuidador-enfermero, con su hermana y con la madre de ambos. Probablemente tambin con el lector, quien sentir que una jaula empieza a encerrarlo y se hace pequea gradualmente. La secuencia de hechos inquieta y pone en tensin; tambin ofrece mltiples posibilidades de interpretacin, entre ellas la de que los personajes representen, en sentido metafrico ---e irnico---, realidades colectivas. Ello desde el subttulo de la novela: "Tratado sobre el futuro de Amrica Latina visto a travs de un hombre inmvil y sus treinta Pastor Belga Malinois": qu o quin nos gobierna y hacia dnde nos lleva (si es que hacia algn lado vamos)? Esta novela postula como ficcin una serie de hechos que no terminan de parecerlo; quiz sean reales. Acompaa a la novela un folleto de 32 pginas con fotografas a color que muestran lugar, personajes, atmsferas, perros hroes.
