Creo que hay tan pocos escritores mexicanos que se atreven a salirse de los temas de confort A second Francis Bacon! Bacon the second XP decided to fight against it and to move away of his destined mediocrity. Eager to be a man renowned in science, and compete against his other self, who was ahead for the simple reason of being born years before. As if that was not enough, when it seemed that Francis had got rid of his burden, graduating with honors from Princeton University, has come to the folly of falling into the wrong place at the wrong time Germany , well actually a few years earlier would have been much worse, but the author was benevolent.
A researcher in wartime had to commit itself with a regime, the Nazi or ally, though not interested in politics if he wanted to continue his quest for knowledge and leave track in history, he had to accept the ideology and to collaborate until the last consequences But with the axiom that everything is uncertain, including especially the human being, we doubt even our own narrator, Volpi keep us in constant change, without knowing if the decisions of Bacon are right or wrong, causes us to wonder if he will achieve his objective or get lost in the way.
I think there are only a few Mexican writers who dare to go outside the comfort issues I give it 5 stars, and just because I there are the only that I have.
