A veces un caballero (Spanish Edition) by Javier Marías

By Javier Marías

Sin alharacas ni presunciones, Javier Marías se ha convertido en uno de los indiscutibles maestros del real columnismo, como puede comprobarse en los ciento cuatro artículos contenidos en A veces un caballero, escritos entre 1998 y 2001. Casi siempre educado, resulta sin embargo más impertinente que cualquier provocador profesional sin más adorno que el de l. a. diversión, su prosa es siempre punzante y ágil dotado para los angeles vehemencia contagiosa, también es capaz de hacer soltar a menudo l. a. carcajada sin rehuir los asuntos cotidianos, nos lleva a pensar en nuestro tiempo de manera inesperada y profunda sus rememoraciones ocasionales nunca caen en l. a. excesiva nostalgia, pero logran emocionar sobriamente. Todo ello, cada vez, en el espacio de tres o cuatro páginas tan sólo. El autor consigue crear un estado de ánimo con cada pieza, y, lo que es más importante, hace que sus relatos y sus reflexiones lleguen a afectarnos personalmente, y que tras su lectura veamos un poco más claro y limpio el mundo por el que transitamos. "A veces un caballero... y a veces un rufián", como le propio Javier Marías reconoce en su prólogo, sus impecables razonamientos, sus evocaciones, su inconformidad y su guasa obran como infalible estímulo para los angeles inteligencia.
