Amuletos contra el desastre

Laura Emily Roberts

La ficción de lo normal

That was just what she would have wanted to hear before, but not now that she’d been through what she’d been through, an experience of suffering so vivid that it created a landscape in her mind as powerful as the mythical one in which she had just been lost. (…) she could envision her own story painted across some urn
(Mary Caponegro, The Star Café)

La trampa de la memoria

And although this was my dream and he did not write what I dreamed he wrote, the words I remember still seem to belong to him, not to me.
(Lydia Davis, The End of the Story)

La decisión del cuerpo

Nyasha knew nothing about leaving. She had only been taken to places - to the mission, to England, back to the mission. She did not know what essential parts of you stayed behind no matter how violently you tried to dislodge them in order to take them with you.

(Tsitsi Dangarembga, Nervous Conditions)

La codicia

Hay en él algo extraño, algo excepcional: de entre todos los rostros del mundo es el que tú has elegido, el que tú has codiciado.
(Andrés Barba)

La cualidad del frío

Reality had always been something of an unknown quantity to me.
(Anna Kavan, Ice)

Lo que no hemos de mirar

Lo más difícil es hablar de lo que nosotros mismos no entendemos.
(Elena Ferrante, La hija oscura)
