Item description for Este Que Ves (Spanish Edition) by Xavier Velasco...

"The one in the painting is a desperate boy. He needs to save himself and doesn t know of what. He wants to get out but doesn t know how. To be a kid is to understand that the road to hell is a short one. One arrives there without knowing, one escapes without thinking, one comes back without meaning to. It is not that childhood is hard, but rather that childhood phantoms are invincible. The boy of this story refuses to tell it. He allows himself everything... except to let the story die. Description in Spanish: "Ser nio es entender que el que lleva al infierno no es un camino corto. Se llega sin saber, se escapa sin pensar, se vuelve sin querer. El nio de esta historia se resiste a contarla. Antes que darle un sitio en su memoria, preferira darle sepultura. Cuando menos lo espera, ya est inmerso en un juego trepidante que le permite todo... menos dejar morir una historia. Se trata de salvarla, se es el juego. No es que la infancia sea en s difcil, sino que sus fantasmas resultan invencibles y sus muros horror inexpugnables. En un proceso inverso al exorcismo, el autor se transforma en personaje, el retrato en fantasma, la cicatriz en tinta: Se escribe, igual que se ama o que se vive, porque no queda ms alternativa, ni se ve escapatoria tolerable. "
