By Rodrigo Rey Rosa

Un maestro en el género: este volumen quintessential incluye sus relatos publicados y algunos inéditos.

«El hecho que más me ha parecido premonitorio de l. a. muerte ha sido darme cuenta de que una personality que me gustaba me aburre profunda, infinitamente.»

Muy pocos autores llegan a dominar el género del relato, cercano a l. a. poesía por su brevedad e impacto y del que Cortázar, Bioy Casares o Borges son los grandes maestros en lengua española: Rodrigo Rey Rosa está a los angeles altura de esos clásicos. Perturbadores, sensuales, angustiantes y llenos de suspense, dejan al lector absorto después de leerlos, como si despertara de un sueño o de un golpe. los angeles lectura de cada uno de estos cuentos, pertenecientes a seis libros distintos, hasta los últimos, inéditos y de escritura muy reciente, es una experiencia singular, cercana a un viaje inesperado. El recorrido traza también un retrato literario de los angeles evolución de un autor único.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Una literatura de los sentidos y del conocimiento esencial. Sensual y ethical. Leer para disfrutar casi irracionalmente.»
Ernesto Ayala-Dip, El Correo Español

«Quizá Rey Rosa hace con su propio país lo que su maestro Paul Bowles con Marruecos: verlo desde una distancia breve pero infranqueable, donde l. a. máxima economía de estilo acrecienta l. a. fuerza de las ambigüedades.»
Edgardo Dobry, El País

«Ese estilo que identificamos con los clásicos, donde las palabras son tan esenciales como l. a. tensión narrativa que crean. Añádase asimismo una forma muy extraordinary de humor, este buen humor de quien escribe consciente de que una buena historia se apoya siempre en esta zona donde l. a. invención no niega los angeles realidad pero sí l. a. supera.»
J. A. Masoliver Ródenas, La Vanguardia

«Una obra extraordinariamente contenida, parca, intrigante. Una literatura a salvo de gestos inútiles, donde l. a. belleza parece nacer de esa curiosa inclinación por el silencio.»
Raphaëlle Rérolle, Le Monde

«Una escritura despojada hasta el máximo, en los angeles que ninguna palabra sobra, y sin embargo envolvente y sensual hasta rozar lo obsesivo, casi como un sueño vivido.»
Pere Gimferrer

«Incita al misterio y al ultimate de l. a. lectura creemos haber cerrado en falso una herida.»
Arturo García Ramos, ABC (Cultural)

«Una propuesta editorial que consolida una obra numerous, de impecable ejecución, y así agrupada es una felicitación para sus adeptos.»
Francisco Solano, Babelia
