They participate in a meeting on new Ecuadorian narrative. There are BBS in the literature of Ecuador? Not only chronological transitions? The Ministry of culture presents a series of talks and discussions on the new itineraries, thematic and formal, of the local narrative until Thursday, April 23. Party by the book: the new Ecuadorian writers brings together 20 writers under 35 years of age. Appointments have stoked discussions about influences, parricides, rush to publish and unrest in the culture that the guayaquileno Narrator Leonardo Valencia rightly identifies as Falcon syndrome in his recent essay. Jorge Luis Caceres: Narrator of the macabre by Alexis Cuzme, journalist and editor of Editorial sea opened from the shadows (El Conejo, 2007) the first work of this author, is a compendium of seven framed stories – as your title suggests – in marginal stories, in, from and for the shadows, which bring us closer to morbid, bloody and desesperanzadoras frames.

Caceres digs in the problem of the lumpen, reveals truths already revealed, uses arguments already used, its objective: emphasise using literature in the evil that surrounds us and choking. Not all the stories are pieces, which can highlight, from a personal reading, but my fifteen, journey and Challenger are the tales that saved the work in them is given back to the same book, it manages to go beyond what the author has proposed in the narrative body. My life was marked by blows from a child, my father was my first opponent, although back then it was like fighting a giant, says one of the characters of the Challenger, so to what Bukowski in son of Satan, so wrapped itself, in that now that claiming its step away from the mud in which it is located. Closely linked to this line theme is his second play the flower of cold (El Conejo, 2009) that in his ten stories – with three of them previously published in his predecessor: the Horseshoe of the devil, Mis quince, and the King of clubs – is presented as a book better prepared, with characters closest to our reality and to us, without so many stereotypes making them common. Quito is the setting, the city that regurgitates stories linked to the Red Chronicle, with characters gloomy macabramente developing in their roles, with the death of shadow accompanying alleys, neighborhoods and luxurious houses. These are the environments that Caceres has chosen to portray us dementia who live around us, scouring isolated everyday stories and we prefer to ignore until they appear in the press or within a screen. The tale that gives title to the book is one of the most incredible, there is compressed synthesized horror of the work, there his characters obsessed with recording movies of fights and killings of homeless people, are the excuse needed to let us ravaging by the ideal of violence who lives in the book. Because who said that it was difficult to shoot actual murder!. The flower of the cold is not only a book rather than it’s murderers, unsuccessful and subject; It is the book that rejects the love, fleeing by infamous. The one who accepts the Joy materialised in the bodies that are part of the balance of Justice, bloody but fair, since each of the characters. Original author and source of the article.
