Shuttling between cultural comedies and political tragedies, Lawrence Weschler's articles have throughout his long career intrigued readers with his unique insight into everything he examines, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Uncanny Valley continues the page–turning conversation as Weschler collects the best of his narrative nonfiction from the past fifteen years. The title piece surveys the hapless efforts of digital animators to fashion a credible human face, the endlessly elusive gold standard of the profession. Other highlights include profiles of novelist Mark Salzman, as he wrestles with a hilariously harrowing bout of writer's block; the legendary film and sound editor Walter Murch, as he is forced to revisit his work on Apocalypse Now in the context of the more recent Iraqi war film Jarhead; and the artist Vincent Desiderio, as he labors over an epic canvas portraying no less than a dozen sleeping figures. With his signature style and endless ability to wonder, Weschler proves yet again that the "world is strange, beautiful, and connected" (The Globe and Mail). Uncanny Valley demonstrates his matchless ability to analyze the marvels he finds in places and people and offers us a new, sublime way of seeing the world.

Download #3 Hombre al agua eBook Pdf ePub and Kindle

Una novela lúcida e imprescindible escrita por uno de nuestros clásicos contemporáneos Desi es un perdedor, un espíritu anarquista con alma de filósofo que vive en una modesta pensión de Lavapiés llamada El Tesoro. Por el amor de una mujer se introduce en un círculo de conspiradores que se han bautizado a sí mismos como los Insurrectos y en el que militan, entre otros personajes delirantes y pintorescos, un millonario que quiere acabar con el capitalismo y un cura que desea destruir la Iglesia desde dentro. Paródica y surrealista a veces, con un ácido sentido del humor, Hombre al agua es un asombroso y lúcido ejercicio de estilo en el que, a través del esperpento, Javier Reverte dibuja un fiel retrato de una ciudad y sus habitantes digno de las mejores páginas de Valle-Inclán. Si en Luces de bohemia los héroes de la tragedia griega acudían a mirarse en los espejos deformantes del callejón del Gato, el protagonista de esta tragicomedia picaresca observa su reflejo en los sucios charcos de la plaza de Lavapiés y se lanza de lleno a la vida, aunque suponga mojarse. «Y la vida humana, ¿qué era? En cierta forma, Desi ahora la veía como un esfuerzo por ir adaptándose a cuanto le superaba, por tratar de acomodarse a lo que desconocía. Y ello suponía una determinación que a veces se le antojaba sobrenatural. Pues, cuando ya había logrado con arduo empeño acostumbrarse a una nueva forma de existir, de pronto la vida se transformaba. Y mientras sus pensamientos y su ánimo regresaban añorantes a aquellos días de desenfadada y jovial rebeldía de la juventud, en la que todo parecía posible y alcanzable, cuando la existencia formaba parte de lo eterno, surgía la última pregunta: ¿le quedaríanaún fuerzas para emprender la aventura que renacía envuelta en la incertidumbre?»
