Espía de la primera persona

Shepard, Sam

The literary testament of Sam Shepard, written in the last months of his life, when a degenerative disease was taking over his body. Faced with this situation, the writer stood up, in a last gesture of resistance through writing. The result was this short, fragmentary, elliptical, radical, enigmatic and dazzling novel. Someone spies on someone: he observes across the street a man who remains sitting in a rocking chair, talking to himself and receiving attention from his loved ones. Someone evokes memories and tells stories: a strange party with camels in the middle of the Arizona desert; a great-aunt's husband whose ear was bitten off; a pier on the coast; a horse that is shot in the middle of a race; a clinic in the middle of the desert surrounded by gardens with sculptures; the story of the grandparents who left when their house flooded; the story of Pancho Villa when he was assassinated after the revolution; a mattress on the floor in New York's Lower East Side; Vietnam and Watergate; the escape from Alcatraz; a group of Mexican immigrants waiting for work on a corner... Border territories, landscapes of deep America, desert areas, California beaches and New York streets: the map or the puzzle or the mosaic of a life. A work of captivating beauty, a farewell poem in the form of a novel.
