El árbol de los cuentos (Spanish Edition) by Luis Mateo Díez

By Luis Mateo Díez

El presente volumen reúne una colección de relatos de Luis Mateo Díez seleccionados por él mismo. Todo un mundo lleno de descubrimientos, en el que los angeles imaginación y l. a. memoria llegan a confundirse, y en el que no hay opción para las historias complacientes, ya que l. a. vida que se gana en las ficciones debe ser más poderosa que los angeles verdadera.

«Reunir los cuentos que llevo escritos y publicados haciendo un largo recorrido ordenador entre los años 1973 y 2004, no me ha resultado fácil. Los cuentos se me van de las manos, las novelas las tengo más atadas, aunque también debo confesar mi condición de propietario indolente de mis ficciones. Lo que ya está escrito siempre me interesa menos que el proyecto en marcha, y l. a. propensión de las invenciones al anonimato siempre me subyugó.

»Los cuentos se me han ido de las manos en libros perdidos y recuperados, en colecciones sueltas, también en libros que no eran estrictamente de cuentos, libros en los que había cuentos además de otras cosas. Reunirlos es reconocerlos, dejar que vuelvan y adquieran l. a. consistencia de las ramas del árbol al que pertenecen. Ellos contienen, sin duda, huellas insustituibles de mi mundo literario, tonalidades y hallazgos variados y hasta puede que respondan a intereses y retos contrapuestos, tras los angeles deriva de tantos años. los angeles perfección del olvido, esa ambición ethical y estética de que una ficción no necesite dueño, se corresponde muy bien con l. a. ambición de un cuento perfecto, tan imposible como imprescindible.

»No hay opción a las historias complacientes, l. a. vida que se gana en las ficciones siempre debe ser más poderosa que los angeles verdadera.»
Luis Mateo Díez

«Su prosa transmite al lector una suerte de necesidad, como si lo que cube no pudiera decirse de mejor modo.»
