Summary
  • This novel begins with the narrator's discovery that his wife has left him. In their apartment he finds emptiness, reminiscences and bookish memories that lead him to reflect on his feelings of abandonment. The vacant spaces of the apartment remind him of moments in his married life, as well as characters from the literary history that took place in similar domestic spaces: from the dining room where William Burroughs accidentally killed his wife to the dining room where Leon Trotsky, André Bretón, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo gathered amid discussions and sexual intrigue.--
  • ""42 m2" is a novel about a young man who has always lived in apartments that measured 42 m2. Author Fabrizio Mejía Madrid also explores the rooms of the protagonist's various dwellings as belonging to famous writers such as André Bretón, B. Traven, William Burroughs, Malcolm Lowry, Jane Bowles, and Alexander von Humboldt, presenting them as people who lived to the limit of their possibilities and came to Mexico in search of change. In this way, the work is also a reflection on the daily experience of being human and undergoing constant movement, yet at the same time, often resisting change."--
  • ¿Cuántas existencias caben en una sola vida? Ante la ventana de una casa que está a punto de abandonar, un joven se hace esta pregunta. Sabe que se halla en una encrucijada y que frente a él se despliegan dos trayectos posibles: el amor o la muerte, el azar o la decisión, fluir o destruir. En la sinuosa respuesta a su duda, su casa será habitada por seis fantasmas, seis escritores que buscaron en México, sin más método que el exceso, una idea o un espejismo absoluto: André Bretón, B. Traven, William Burroughs, Malcolm Lowry, Jane Bowles y Alexander von Humboldt. En 42 metros cuadrados, todo objeto, toda persona, se convierte en un obstáculo, pero recorrer su estrechez nos va entrenando para nuestra propia insuficiencia. En esta novela cronicada --homenaje y parodia de la vida de los santos o de los césares--, Fabrizio Mejía Madrid nos recuerda que vivir en mudanza permanente puede ser tan sólo una forma de inmovilidad. Pase usted: está en su casa
