CHARACTERS ë Nuestro mundo muerto õ [PDF] ✑ Nuestro mundo muerto By Liliana Colanzi – Una mujer en una misión de colonización en Marte un joven poseído por el impulso asesino de un indio mataco un chico ue dice comunicarse con gente del espacio una nana ayorea a la ue le gusta comer Una mujer en una misión dUperstición los fantasmas o lo sobrenatural para explicar o dar sentido a lo bueno y a lo malo a la vida y a la muerte Un libro intenso feroz y complejo en el ue resuenan ecos de Sara Gallardo Horacio uiroga o Silvina Ocampo escrito por una de las autoras bolivianas más destacadas de la nueva generació. OUR DEAD WORLD the apt title for this fine collection of short fiction from the young and gifted Bolivian writer Liliana Colanzi prepares us for a book that time and again reflects a fixation w despeciation blight from on high the tenuous hold we possess on existence and the individual apocalypse that is each person's death when conceived from that person's own vantage There is not a single story here that is not fundamentally anchored to portents of doom The dead world is a future world but its dawn very certainly approaches At least if we are to take Colanzi's stories as gospel There is a morbid uality to the stories certainly but there is also a sense of wonder at the scale of space time and a propensity for earnest intimacy counterpointed with the overwhelming macro modelling These are small stories tapping a collective unconscious They reflect at their best where we are at now At least I say so Colanzi is still a bit green Not everything falls into place uite right There are bits here and there that are definitely slightly clunky The most important thing about a short story is always the last sentence or couple sentences Colanzi is clearly aware of this but some of the landings are a little iffy That being said she remains impressively versatile within the realm of what exists under the dead world banner She has a good sense of rhythm and form though both do occasionally fail her never catastrophically She takes risks The strongest stories do surprising things and do their conceits justice I may tend to be a little reflexively critical when an accomplished writer as happens and often is younger than me So maybe I want to find fault But I also want to be blown away That is why I pick the thing up This is a very very impressive collection w which I have sporadically found minor fault I suppose I must also concede that Liliana Colanzi is very beautiful and that I guess I kind of have a crush on her This disreputable fact may also complicate not to say completely once and for all delegitimize my read Alas
