Item description for El Materialismo Histerico/ Hysteric Materialism by Xavier Velasco...

A collection of 24 stories where the author experiments with stories, chronicles, fables, parables, essays, and journalistic notes. The prose is humoristic, bitter and fearless. Determined not to be a simple witness but an accomplice, the narrator breathes in the night at bars, cabarets, dives, pick-up joints; children's play areas, wedding receptions, and lover's dimly lit piano bars. We could call him a romantic because he is able to fall in love and find mystery and beauty where ordinary folk only see lust, cash and risk. Each story makes you laugh, with the certainty that we are laughing at someone we know; the biggest surprise is that sometimes it is ourselves. Description in Spanish: Sin credencial de prensa ni amigos en la puerta, en el ms delicioso anonimato, el narrador de estas crnicas visita bares, cabaretes, tugurios, antros de mala muerte, table dances, burlesques, clubes sociales, puticlubes, calles de pirujas, zonas rojas, zonas de prostitutos travestidos... pero tambin zonas de juegos infantiles, fiestas de bodas, bares con pianista melanclico y enamorados de manita sudada. As pues, se da a llenar la noche de preguntas y a buscar los excesos capaces de sorprenderlo, disgustarlo, amenazarlo, pero no de dejarlo inerme. No quiere ser testigo, sino cmplice. Y es un romntico. Como los poetas malditos muy a tiempo lo supieron, el romanticismo radica en la capacidad de hallar mstica, misterio y hermosura justo donde los ordinarios (quienes temen contaminarse, y por eso se hacen a un lado) slo supieron ver lascivia, cash y riesgo. El romntico es romntico porque se enamora de quien no debe, donde no debe y, si es posible! , cuando no puede.
