By Ricardo Piglia
«De entre los angeles legión de escritores hispanoamericanos que se han alzado a
los hombros del precursor Borges, es Ricardo Piglia quien tiene las
mejores vistas sobre los paisajes y territorios de los angeles literatura
universal.» Süddeutsche Zeitung
¿Qué es un lector? ¿Quién es? ¿Qué le sucede mientras lee? La
literatura, advierte Piglia, da un nombre y una historia al lector. De
don Quijote a Hamlet, de Bartleby al lector inventado de Borges, de Emma
Bovary a Philip Marlowe, asistimos a una variedad infinita de lectores:
el visionario, el enfermo, el compulsivo, el melancólico, el traductor,
el crítico, el escritor, el filósofo y #¿por qué no?# el propio autor,
Piglia como Piglia y como Renzi. ¿Qué es un lector? los angeles respuesta «es un
relato: inquietante, singular y siempre distinto».
