La mesa del olvido y otros cuentos de amor

Marcelo Birmajer
La mesa del olvido y otros cuentos de amor

Short stories and novellas, Edhasa (December 2020)

El diablo está en los detalles, pero el amor también. En los detalles, y en el azar de un encuentro, en eso que se produce a pesar de la voluntad. Es una puerta de entrada, la mejor manera de entender los propósitos de una vida; o de extraviarlos por completo. Las paradojas de conquistar lo inconveniente o buscar incansablemente lo que ya tenemos. Pasiones que sobreviven a la muerte y otras que la provocan. Los disfraces que en rigor son nuestra esencia.

Dive into this essential, desirable conversation between John Berger and Leon Kossoff and you will feel ever invigorated.’ Deborah Levy (from the Introduction)
