En la ciudad líquida

PRH, 2017

Liquid cities are those whose contours are reflected in the waters of a river or a sea, like Saint Petersburg, Tangiers, Moscow, or Porto. For the author, these are metaphors of the inner space, the moment of suspension one plunges into when reading, translating, or writing. This book is an homage to authors like Chekhov, Dostoevsky, Pasternak, Brodsky, Nabokov, Paul and Jane Bowles, Elizabeth Bishop, and Lydia Chukovskaya, as well as to the double edges of words, which abide in the horizon and its reflection, and are themselves a kind of liquid city.
