A House in Ruins

Reports of Fide. Volume 4.
Publisher: Almuzara

A plurality of authors, a diversity of styles, and the very diverse approach that the 28 stories carry out on a wide range of topics indicates that the stories respond to experiences, narratives, feelings or emotions that more than transcend the moment we are living.

In a world where noise and stress are out of respect taking over everything, there is hardly any space to listen to ourselves. And yet nothing is more urgent today. The trees do not let us see the forest. But the forest is there ...

The authors of the stories that make up this volume are aware of this and, from very different perspectives and perspectives, contribute with their stories to broaden our perception of the world around us. Using as a tool a literary genre that connects perfectly with our current requirements, they address issues as peremptory as the dilapidated wealth of beauty that our rural Spain encloses, the so-called emptied Spain (a wonderful parable that the teacher Antonio Colinas gives us in the story that gives title to this volume, A ruined house); they reel off the desire for freedom of the Cuban exiles, glossed with the vigorous pen full of sincerity of Zoé Valdés ("Escorial"); they speak to us of memory in the Borgian way, as in "Letter of love and forgetfulness", by Mario Garcés; In short, they bring the reader closer to a host of situations that reveal the most remote keys to the reality that surrounds us to illuminate it with a new and radiant light.

This expands the valuable cast of authors already established in this collection, such as Mario Alonso, Antonio Garrigues, Pilar Llop, Alvaro Lobato and José Manuel Otero Lastres. With a prologue by Cristina Jiménez, this fourth compilation of stories FIDE (after the previous The chronograph, On the border y I have something to tell you) combines sagacity and wit in an essential reading, for all kinds of audiences.
